BCT 100% Maui Red/Yellow Kaanpali Blend. Funny, this roasts up pretty good in my FR, but comes out uneven in the big Coffee Kinetics roaster. Needless to say, this was done in the FR to FC.
Gonna do something else, too. Prolly not drink much hot coffee this weekend, gonna be in the 90s on Sat and 80s on Sun.
Sure am looking forward to leaving this place.

Hmmm, not a very even roast. You attribute that to the coffee or your roaster. Whatta you using?

From what I read it will roast slightly uneven, as is true with most Indonesians. I stopped it half way throughg the 2nd crack because the kids were screaming it was to smoky and the mamma said stop so I couldn't fully do what I wanted with it. I use a FR 300

Possibly too many beans in the roaster? Overfilling will lead to uneven roasts too.

That is very true. You prolly don't wanna go to much past 10 secs into 2nd crack, that will already be a Full City+ roast.
And if you are roasting indoors, I do it directly under the hood for the stove. You are gonna get a LOT of smoke, going deep into 2nd crack.

While working from home today, I did manage to sneak out to the patio around 5PM this evening (about 81*) and roast a couple of small 3.5oz batches of Ethiopia FTO Sidama - Shilcho Coop:

Without flash:


With flash:


Solid FC+ I think with each roast timed at 6min 30sec prior to cooling off... I sure enjoy popping a few beans in my mouth following the cool down while they are still room temperature for a sampling taste
