I realize it's a matter of taste, but I'd be interested to learn where
others let their Estate Grade fall "between the cracks."

Maybe I could offer something. We roast for our roasted customers to
just as second crack starts. Bob then dumps it into the cooling box
which is really just a box with a fan to suck away the heat. We love
that roast too. Not burnt but simply chocolatey and yummy:). Seems
to work for us:).

aloha,

I just roasted ten pounds of Smithfarms Kona, and the start of second was
the sweet spot for me using a drum roaster.

Oops... I 'tried' to get Smithfarms and they were out at the time, so I
ended up getting another Kona. Sorry for the mistake. Doh!

Dear Ed sorry we didn't have any when you wanted it. But...we have
brand new season green Crop 2006-2007 just in:) Actually Bob has just
gone to take the cherry that was picked today over to the wet millers.
So our harvest is in.Yippee.

Never done Smithh Farms, but IMO Kona is best when just over 1st and
rested 2-4 days.

When the roast aroma is floral, stop
