Were you using the right amount of beans? Too few beans would make for
lower temperatures and longer roast times.

The coffee is unreal.
My coffee problems (nasty coffee) using the Poppery are over since I will
not be using it anymore. I think my troubles were related to the profile my
Poppery gave me.  Without fan and heat control, I believe I was getting
baked coffee.
Just for fun...I have data for my Poppery roasts...can someone look them
over to see if my hypothesis, that the coffee beans produced by the Poppery
were baked, is justified?http://oz.uc.edu/~testasm/roast.htmThanks, Marc

Great observations but it's still hard to say what's 
going on in your Poppery. Each profile on it's own 
looks OK, but they are terrifically inconsistent. 
Generally, profiles are a lot closer on purpose built 
roasters. 
Could it be the thermostat doing strange things? Or was 
it bypassed?
The HWP produces a very consistent even roast, but few 
would call popper roasts as "nasty".

Your stats look all right to me, Marc, so I don't know why you were getting nasty coffee from the popper. As long as you are happy with the Hearthware, that is the important thing.

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
Well...all roasts were done with 3.0 oz. and I removed the bimetallic =
strip, so the temp remained constant...I have more data that measures =
the between crack temps and they never decreased. I think the =
inconsistency is due to ambient temperatures that varied from 80 or 85 =
to 95 degress. Ohio is hot in the summer! I should note that not all the =

Also, I sent a list member my data and he is analyzing it to see if he =

Thanks!
