Who has roasted this coffee in a FR+ or FR (no mods), how far did you 
take it, how did it come out?
Thanks,
Ben

Ben,
I've roasted it in both the FR and FR+ (no mods) and I took it to the
first snaps of 2nd crack and I've taken it to full city. According to
the log book it was best at full city. It is best rested for a couple of
days - but I found it good as an espresso after just 36 hours. Its a
very good dark roast. I don't do Vienna so aggressive full is about it -
and it is good.

Ben got some Kenya AA, but I do not know the Origin. but this is how I =
roasted what I have 3 -65gr. batches in a FR+ no profile just let it =
roast .
 
1. just thru 1st crack, not to 2nd. Bright and tasty good mouth feel =
lingering finish
2  20 sec. into 2nd crack.  very good smooth a little brightness smooth =
finish
3 to a rolling 2nd crack brightness not there nice roast taste but flat
It seems to me that roasted to City brings out the nice citrus medium =
body and lingering aftertaste. I prefer it 20 sec into 2nd crack it =
mutes the brightness a little, and the body is better.   I do not really =
like very bright coffee's they tend to leave a sour taste in my mouth =
after about a cup or two. I guess what I'm trying to say I really do =
like a bright cup but it does not like me.
Hope this helps you.

I was roasting some cheap Colombian supremo (it was free) last night, 
but at 90 gr. (suppose to be a 3 oz roaster). Only had 65 gr. left, so I 
did a 65 gr. batch, with a 50cfm exhaust fan sitting on top of the 
roaster. Huge difference. At 5 minutes the beans were just nicely 
through 1st crack, while with 90gr, and 2 mins preheat, no exhaust fan, 
rolling 2nd crack, and oily surface. Definitely French; which was about 
the only flavor i got out of the beans with a 90gr roast.

My Kenya I did at 90 gr., 4 1/2 minutes, with exhaust, took it to a few 
pops of the second crack. Fresh roasted, below my expectations. That's 
when I decided to try the little ignored 65 gr batch of cheap stuff. I 
got a lot for flavor development at the lower gram batch. Just a lot 
slower roast. 1st and 2nd cracks aren't 'running' into each other.
