What about a material that was non-toxic that changed color at specific
temps - kinda like a "mood bean"?  
I know there are substances that are thermo reactive and change their
color in response to it...

That's what I need - temperamental beans that are moody and explode.
I thought Monsooned Malabar was capricious...

There are temperature sensitive paints available. You put dots of paint on
electrical equipment, if the rated temperature of a paint is exceeded (they
come at various temperature sensitivities) then they permanently change
color.
I'm not sure how suitable they'd be for use in food, though.

I may resemble those beans...

5) From: Scott Marquardt
Another alternative would be beans that whistle. Instead of their entire
casing rupturing, an orifice with a calibrated rupture pressure thingy
(again, sorry for the tech-speak) would break, and the brief high frequency
would be picked up by a microphone.
The advantage to this system is that each temperature thus sensed could be
differentiated by frequency; I'd think the whistle in the orifice could be
easily designed for different frequencies for different pressures.
These beans would not have the advantage of self-destruction, though.

A "mood bean" would make for interesting roast reports also.  "My roast
progressed nicely from calm to irritable.  Before I could stop it at an
angry roast it went indifferent on me."  Jared

I'm willing to do a lot for homeroasting, but whistles in orifices may
be going a little too far . . . .
Brent
Sticking with sight/sound/smell to roast for now.

And quite right, too, Brent!  Next thing you know, we'll be hearing about 
roasted gerbils.

Yeah, right!  As if I don't get enough of a weird reaction from friends and
relatives when I tell them I roast my own beans.  Imagine their response to
Kopi Fido!!!

If only some genius would bottle a Kona Peaberry Pinot Noir.  Mmm, coffee
wine...  Would that be weird?
