I know I know I am flooding the list today but since I am on leave rigt now I have lots of playtime... I tried my first peaberry batch today in the popper and I am a bit mystified by the results.. it was a very fast roast only 3.5 min to FC and I pulled it at just a smidge under 5 for a City+ normally with a 1/4 cup roast using a 100ft ext. cord I hit FC at 6 the roast appears to be even but alot of the peaberries didn't "grow" in size but all appear to be roasted equally.. is there something about peaberries I should know?

Dennis, I TOLD you they roast faster! If you are on leave all week, maybe we can "play" again Thursday or Friday. Bring the Mrs. along this time (or you will NEVER get your Liberty Card again). All we did is roast on Saturday when you were here, I still have lots of other "toys" to play with. JavaJerry Dennis & Marjorie True wrote: <Snip>

I think it is due to the shape and is probably an illusion, although I have not measured unroasted and then roasted peaberries for density yet. Longberry beans are about 20 gr per 1/8th cup as greens and about 10 gr roasted. Has anybody checked the peaberries? Safe Journeys and Sweet Music Justin Marquez (Snyder, TX)
was it the marias special guat, if so i've noticed the same thing, not alot of expansion, peaberries typically roast faster/darker than other regular coffee beans, so that would be part of the time difference.
