I’ve just finished seasoning my R1 and have done my first roast:
After looking more carefully, I may have stopped the roast slightly early. I heard one or two cracks for sure and marked first crack, but I am not sure if I really heard it “roll”. I know this can be very different for different coffees. Some barely make any noise. Up until now all my roasts have been on an old Behmor 1600, which is a pretty quiet roaster, I think.
I’m also wondering if perhaps it was subdued because I wasn’t using enough heat. The ROR seems to have gone very flat for a long time. I’m not used to having this instrumentation. I’m more used to roasting totally by sight and sound.
I’d really appreciate any comments or feedback on this.
