    I have not yet tried any of the program modes.

    Did a 1:45 second preheat, then

    Used 1 (despite using only 1/4lb in the drum) to avoid the unattended shutdown nanny, then P5 for manual 100% power, then watched the roast. When it was getting brown I hit P4 for 75% power and listened for start of 1C.

    At start of 1C I hit the A button to reset the timer to show the expected time for 1/4lb to go to 2C. Half way through that time I hit Cool.

    I'm going to try a couple different things.

    Less power up front, maybe 50 or 75% and more at the end, 75 or 100%

    Then 100% up front like I did but cut back sooner, and maybe to P3 instead of P4.

    more power at the end not a great idea as most roasters say it it's a good idea to extend the time between 1st and 2nd crack.

    Local supermarket is closing. Normally this local roaster coffee is $14 a pound a little too rich for my blood. Today everything was 50% on top of the sale. IMG_20180110_142006.jpg

    Anyone try the new Starbucks Blonde Flat White? They're pretty good! Normally go to my local coffee spot for flat whites but Starbucks has really stepped up their game.

    just a taste outside the law
    I use a mini percolator that makes 2 big cups and I consume every morning. I can't function without it.
    I will grind beans every once in a while and I keep various beans in the freezer but lately I use various pre grinded coffee's.
    I love half and half in my brew and use Stevia after years of sweetnlow.

    Using a big commercial La Marzocco Linea at home personally. No photos unfortunately, but she's a beauty. I love a nice dark roast personally
