Topic: The Rosto Returns (3 msgs / 66 lines)
1) From: David Gwyn
To my surprise, I was pleased to find my Cafe Rosto arrived today from UPS.
Curiously, it was shipped back to me in the box in which I sent it, and I'm
not sure if the RMA information I placed inside was even read. Further
disturbing was the fact that there wasn't any note of any kind indicating
what they had done. I can only assume they took it apart because one of the
screws inside wasn't fully screwed back in, which I did before the first
roast. Considering I placed three calls and two emails and got not response,
I was quite surprised. However, given that I got it back within four weeks
of shipping it, I guess I should count myself as being rather lucky.
All that aside, I was greatly relieved when I was able to produce two
batches of coffee tonight. Finally! I'm looking forward to tomorrow
morning's first brew. I also discovered that by pan roasting and then popper
roasting a few batches while waiting, I was able to learn how first and
second crack are supposed to sound. Tonight I could actually hear them over
the sound of the fan, which I don't believe I really noticed as well before.
If others have gotten theirs back, I hope you share the same success.
Thanks,
David Gwyn

This is precisely why I recommend wok or pan roasting as part of 
learning to roast.  You should also try to pay close attention to 
changes in smell and color.
