Steve, I roasted 8 oz in the Behmor to City+/FC.  I've found that coffees=
 roasted in the Behmor take a longer rest to develop, and this was true her=

nced and interesting from start to finish.  Really nice sweetness as it c=
ooled.  I found it more complex than the other highly-rated Columbian, bu=
t both were very good.
Different brewing techniques can yield different results, as I'm sure you k=
now.  I've used a Hario and a Bonmac enough to know that the former empha=
sizes brightness while the latter brings out more body.  Try a slower dri=
p, if you can.  
Cheers,
Paul

may I suggest that you always buy 2 pounds of any coffee.
for my coffee money I always taste the roast right away, after a day or two
again and ...
since I use 90% of all my coffee as SO espresso in cafe crema it works for
me.
I dump a sm bunch of roasted into my Solis 5K and see what happens.

I also got a pound of the other Columbian (whose name escapes me at the
moment); haven't roasted it yet.
My roaster is a bit limited; it's a Ronco Showtime with a stainless steel
mesh cylinder over the spit. No control over the power (lots of projects).
I get nice results on lots of beans, but it falls flat on some - I hit 1st
crack at 15 to 18 minutes; varying the door position lets me stretch things
a bit heading to second crack. Crude but generally effective -- a
Troglodyte ancestor of the Behmor.
I've got some SM Bolivia Organic Buenavista which I'm really enjoying at
the moment; though lower-rated than the Columbian, it's nice: dark
chocolate, sweet, good body.

setting which seems unnecessary most of the time. Maybe I'll give that a
try when I roast the other Columbian.
