Is it me, or is the SOGM very subdued in it's cracks? I could barely 
discern first crack in my Alp with this bean. It also seemed to take 
longer to roast than others - which is strange since it's a fairly small 
bean. Nearly 18 minutes into the roast and it was only City roast - 
ambient temp was 79F - woulda expected 16-17 minutes. Not bad tho - I 
like lighter roasts personally and City suits this bean pretty well... 
I'd hate to try to roast it in a louder roaster tho - the crack would be 
almost impossible to hear! 18 hours of rest and it's a pretty bright 
coffee in a coffee press at this level of roast, tho at this light roast 
there's not as much body as I expected. However - a little more resting 
may take care of that...
Cheers,
Mike
