1) From: miKe mcKoffee
Crap, you snooze you loose:-(
Would have really liked to try it. Oh well.
OK, anyone willing to swap a 1/2# Aida for a 1/2# Esmerelda Gesha AND a 1/2#
Kona?

Yes if I had a pound. I loved the Gesha and my dad loves the Kona.
But alas for poor me, I do not know Aida.

My report was a warning!  Order fast before it is gone!  Alas it is gone.

I emailed Aida about how well the coffee cupped, and sold, and she 
was delighted. So maybe ... MAYBE... she will let me get more next 
year. Kilimanjaro is a lot I would really like to get more of too, 
but it's basically a set buying group, and others would like to get 
more too...

I have one pound of this coffee, and from what I've read from Tom and other=
s, this is extra special.  My recent purchase of a Behmor and 1/5th pound r=
oasts have put me on the low end of the learning curve on this roaster and =
I really don't want to screw up this rare treat.  Tom recommends C+ to FC+.=
  Can anyone help me figure out the right control settings?
 
Thanks for everything, and Happy Holidays to all!

I would go with P2 (my favorite) at 14 minutes.  I don't fret with 
any of the ABCD settings they are just time adjustments.  Hit cool at 
the very first sign of 2nd crack (often coming on the heels of 1st in 
the Behmor).

Agreed on the P2 setting; it seems to work best with high grown or SHG type
beans. I think I have done at least a half dozen roasts with that profile.
Most recently I did 14 oz. of Costa Rican Dota coop using P2 with the 1#
setting. This gave a nice FC+ roast that was excellent.
I have not done any low grown beans, Brazils or Kona come to mind, yet. I
seem to recall on of the profiles is suggested for low altitude beans, but
I'm not near my copy of the manual at the moment.
cheers,
Scott

Being Behmorless, now I need a translation button for the Behmor
preset profile language! Does P2 mean a little more gentle profile?
Was thinking of going that way with this clean peaberry. Lower
preheat, gentler ramp at first.

Ed,
I couldn't figure out how to slice out the individual page that shows
the Behmor profiles, but this link will take you to the whole manual.  http://www.behmor.com/pdf/Behmor_Manual_full_v3.3.pdfIf you go to page 16 in the manual you will see a graphical
representation of the five profiles in the machine.  P2 runs full blast
for about 60-65% of the total roast time and then drops to about 70% of
power until the end when it goes back to full blast.

Arrived today, thanks Ed! FWIW Ed didn't want Gesha in the trade (he already
has some but out of Kona) so I sent him 12oz each of two different Konas:-)
Almost immediately headed for the CCR HT but decided to save the Aida's for
one of our Christmas Koffees. It'll be a head to head with one of three
Gesha's in stash, at least one Kona and who knows what else!
