 terms of the whole chemistry of roasting, does the bean need to go through=
 the first crack for the flavor to develop properly?

When you dry the seed/bean before the chemical processes adequately develop 
flavor or where the bean is not roasted hot enough to create the environment 
for the chemical processes to properly take place.
