I had purchased the Trifecta from SM but chose not to roast any of it while
I was cutting my roasting teeth on other green beans and my brand new
I-Roast.
I think I am now used to the I Roast and am ready to roast the Gesha.
Do any of you out there have proven I-roast profiles for the Gesha and other
two trifecta beans?
Obliged.

Gesha.  Do any of you out there have proven I-roast profiles for the 
Gesha and other two trifecta beans? ... >>>
Larry,
Be careful about trying other's stage settings from the I-Roasts.  Each 
runs so differently.  I can assure you, my 350 degrees is not yours and 
isn't the next person's either.   As well, our voltages are going to differ.
Just a suggestion after seeing a ton of stage settings posted to forums 
that I know, if used in my I-Roast, would make briquettes out of the 
greens if I used them.  My machine runs extremely hot and would race 
thru the stages that others have suggested.
Trust your sense of your own machine -- or at least get a sense of how 
they are setting their stages in comparison to stages that are presently 
working for you.  Compare them, then extrapolate.

Order the 2 lbs of non-COE Gesha coffee and get it right first. Tom's 
general advice for a city to city + roast profile applied to last year's 
Gesha.
