From my reading of this article there are two main conclusions of
interest to the nonspecialist:
1). different time-temperature roast profiles lead to different flavour profiles
2). water quenching the roast speeds staling
The first will be no surprise to anyone on this list.  The second will
be of interest to those that cool their roasts with water (do many
home-roasters do this?).
They also say that roasted coffee stays fresh for months but ground
coffee should be used within two weeks.  One has to wonder how they
came up with those time scales.

1, 3, 7-trimethyl 2,6-dioxopurine is yet another name for caffeine!
Sneaky, Dave! I laughed out loud when it hit me.
