Ethiopia Beloya 25, to city+. This has been vacuum sealed and frozen for years, I thought I'd break it out for Easter. This was awesome coffee when fresh, tons of blueberry. Here's hoping

Brent, good weather outside when I roasted the El Savador in the Poppery II.

I don't know about you, but I find with all of the beans I've roasted to date, there is a long lag-time between the end of the 1st crack and the almost slight beginnings of the 2nd crack. An almost eerie silence. At the end of the silence period, I'll hear a couple of 2nd cracks, but its not till later when the 2nd cracks actually pick up their pace.

So, I'm usually counting from around 10 to 20 seconds into the 2nd crack prior to pulling the plug on the Poppery II and cooling the beans.

In essence, at 7 min into roasting the El Salvador, the plug was pulled.

Nonetheless, we enjoyed some good coffee on Easter Day which all seemed to enjoy, which includes now as I write this...

Ya, every popper is different. Even within the same brand and model. I have some that get super hot but the blower fan is weak and I have to stir almost the entire time. Others have a strong blower but do not get hot enough so I put the popper in a box and run another popper, blowing hot air into the box to increas the temp in the other popper. It might sound like a pain but I have a system and it works. I like to alternate between poppers while one cools in front of a fan.
