I will be interested in updates as to how this works after a few more
of your tests...

KM> My first intentional interrupted roast (Colombian Quindio) gave unexpectedly
KM> good results. I stopped at 3 minutes, a few pops into first crack, cooled
KM> for 3 mins to near 100F, then restarted. First crack ran from 1.8 to 3.0
KM> minutes after restart and second began at 3.2 mins then cooling began. Total
KM> time under heat was 6.2 mins.
KM> The brightness was greater than normal for Colombians. In fact it was almost
KM> tongue burning. The complexity (depth of flavors) was among the best of my
KM> Colombian roasts. The body seemed near normal, but lacking in comparison
KM> with the brightness. Finish and aftertaste were normal. After a day's rest
KM> the complexity is increasing and the finish and aftertaste becoming much
KM> better. The tongue stinging brightness is still there.
KM> So not only does interrupting a roast not ruin it, but may contribute to
KM> better results. One roast does not make a rule, so I will be doing a few
KM> more to verify and improve the method.
