The roasting that had the three black beans and the piece of jade was 
about 1-1/2#.  I never noticed any in the earlier 3-1/2# but they were 
roasted in the popcorn popper over a wood fire and most of them went to 
the kids and I suspect they would not have complained about a bad cup 
in their free coffee.  One advantage of wok roasting is that you do get 
to see all the beans several times during roasting.  But you don't get 
the pecan wood smoke flavor.

I've been using an aluminum tray I formed up at work for cooling, I've also 
been dumping the greens in it to look them over on the way to the roaster, 
and while they're cooling. Any oddballs really stand out, before or after 
the roast. I haven't found any of Tom's Sumatran bees, but plenty of black, 
neon green, even the occasional painted bean like the red one this week! 
Sticks, string.... I've been building a collection of rocks and concrete 
chips from around the world, mostly just the usual Yemen or Ethiopian or 
Sumatran rocks, but two very rare examples, one from CRLM, one from Panama. 
It only takes a minute, and I've never ground a rock or brewed a stinker. 
OTOH, one time I dumped a roast, and looked too close too soon, and one bean 
sounded second crack and shot a divot in my eye. ;-( Oh well, that'll teach 
me I guess!

If country music ever produces a song about home roasting, this would 
be a good line for it.
