Did a lot of hunting and shooting when I was young before we know about =
hearing loss.
What about the beeps on the Hot Top?
My hearing is quite good except for the high frequencies like watch =
alarms and sometimes auto turn signals.

Huh? Just kidding. I can hear the HotTop beeps if my ear is turned that =
direction. But I roast by sight, smell & sound so I can crank the HotTop =
all the way to 6 or 7, set a timer for 5 minutes (warm up), and hit =
start. After 5 minutes I dump in the beans and set the timer for another =
15 or 16 minutes. After the 15 minutes I tend the roast closely until it =
is complete, hit the eject button and come back later for the finisher =
product. Roasting that way I really don't need to hear them beeps =
anyway.

The beep is at a lower frequency than my watch, and it goes on for
almost a minute.  In fact, when it first came out a number of people
complained about it and asked how to turn it down or off.  I don't have
any problem hearing it if I'm on the same floor as the roaster. 
However, since I tend to start the roast and walk away to do other
things, I set the countdown timer on my watch for 15 minutes and when
it goes off I return to the kitchen to start listening for the cracks.

Terry: Did my first roast on the Hot Top and I can't hear the beeps at =
all. My first roast was Columbian and at the three setting, it came out =
too light. So I put them back and did them again as recommended in the =
booklet. Much darker this time, maybe too dark. Looks like full city =
plus..
Thanks for the tip and I'll have to use your method
Huh ?

Alfred,   This method has worked very well for me. I hope you have =
equally good success with your future roasts.
