Background ; been roasting for > 10 years ; started with a Hearthware Roaster(s) , the Zack and Danny's ( now Nesco ) and currently have a Freshroast. Early days were picking up tips from Mark, Randy and others that my foggy brain do not remember on alt.coffee - still have my t-shirt to prove it.
We tend to like a darker roast ; a little to even a higher sheen of oil -- almost , but not quite Charbucks --
So.. after a first crack at it -- leaning towards the Gene Cafe Home Coffee Roaster -- excellent video on it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b537paZQ4jw
