I love mine. It is the SR500 and does very well. I have a different "dry out" routine that works very well. Let me know if you want to know what I do.

Happy Holidays to you and everyone here.

Sorry everyone about disappearing! I am just getting over the head/chest cold...it is just hanging on like a tick! Hoping nobody else get it, it starts in the throat, moves into the chest, then the sinuses & ears..good golly thumbdown

I watched the beans moving in the glass tube, and I did notice that in one spot in the back, the beans seemed to get caught up more than anywhere else. I didn't notice anything they might be getting caught on, and already my brain started thinking of mods O.O I really cannot do much to it, and nothing visibly since it was a gift you know ;-D

Anyway, I did one roast following the directions in the box the other day, and it didn't roast as even as I had hoped. Then I thought about what MPSAN had said about adding a drying time. The booklet that comes with the machine just goes right into roasting....so, I'm sure with a dry cycle, the beans would roast more evenly! I think I will try it today using MPSAN's method ThumbsUp

Great. As I said, it is a 3 minute drying cycle with a 5 second cool at 30 seconds, 30 seconds, and 1 minute. Then after 1 minute more, I switch to Medium heat for 1.5 minutes before going to High Heat.

Also, for the first minute or so just hold the top and tilt the whole SR500 without lifting it. You will see the beans moving very well when you do that and can see how well they are moving after doing this a few times. I have NEVER burned 1 single bean and the roast is very even.

Hi Tony! Yes, I have done quite a few roasts on it so far, and while I am still getting a feel for it, so far I have gotten some nice results with it ThumbsUp

One particular batch of Mexican Terruno Nayarita turned out fantastic and I noticed I had forgotten to turn the heat up after my dry cycle (this was my 4th batch that evening, so I spaced out a bit)...I want to say I drew it out to about a 7 minute dry cycle before noticing and turning the heat up, then the next unwittingly thing I did was forget to turn the fan down during roasting...
Now this bean I have always enjoyed at a full city+, dump the beans at the first sign of 2nd crack, and loved the flavor of the coffee, but this time with the extended dry cycle, and full fan during the roast, I figured I had to have baked the beans! To my surprise, the coffee took on a much different tone, and distinctly tasted like a sharp blueberry flavor. I tried to duplicate it, but I was roasting some coffee for the couple I bought the sock knitting machine off of in Canada over the weekend...ummm, the coffee was well received by my friends!

I will continue to experiment with this bean to see if I can duplicate the serendipitous roast!
