  ok.... how about this... I have been using my poppery II for about 6 =
months and always get almost perfectly 2.5min 1st  6min 2nd crack.  
ending between 6.2 and 6.5 sec... recently added the heat cutoff switch =
and successfully stretched to 8.5 mins this is on the monkey and 
similar with the Fazenda Laranja Cravo  maybe a little less since I'm 
careful not to over roast it... anyway...  were can I find a "profile" =
for this so I can see maybe some temps.. my problem is... I just 
randomly cycle on and off the heater so the beans do not get over about =
350 until after 1st crack... then I let it go until it reaches 465deg 
for (monkey espresso) then cool it down.... the 2nd crack is harder for =
me to differentiate this way though... 1st crack kept having strays....

ArialCory rod replaces your
plastic disk filter with one that is all glass, a rod that sits in the
cylinder.  It is great -- all glass -- no plastic tastes.  Get them =
on
ebay.  I had a Zass that produced dust once that I had replaced  -- =
so
try a more coarse grind and see what happens.  At present I can use my
Zass with no difficulties with the same grind I use with drip, which
is pretty fine.  Now, I'm using lightly roasted coffees -- nothing
more than Full City as a rule.  The only stall I ever had was with
French roasted decaf.  Maybe the roast level and oil is an issue for
you?  What beans and roast level?
