    HI Roaster school! theres one info i like to share: dropping the beans before 1st crack! as you lose your ability to develop your beans after 1st crack.

    Really enjoying your videos. Just getting started researching the idea of coffee roasting and these have been super helpful. Considering traveling out to Mill City for a class on roasting from Philadelphia. Looking forward to learning from those who have been there!

    Just roasted my 1st 3 batches last night. I loved the experience. I was very nervous and figured I would mess up all of them. But your video is so right. It's hard to mess things up. Each 1lb batch came out really nice. I'm now hooked. Thanks for all your videos to help someone like me feel confident to get started.

    I've been roasting for a few years and have never used software! I rely on my senses – and track on paper…..
