    Having trouble with China Mt Gaoligong green beans

    I cant get these particular beans Mt. Gaoligong China to reach fist crack in my Behmor roaster .

    I have tried on numerous setting from highest heat for the longest time and all the way down the settings but only get them to crack on the second roast and then they come out super dark and very strong.

    Are these are particularly hard bean ?
    Am I doing something wrong ?

    Might help if you provided some info regarding the weight of beans you are trying to roast, exactly what profile settings you used (or just one representative example), the approximate ambient temperature etc? How would somebody know if you are doing something wrong if you don't tell us what you doing ? Saying 'I've tried everything' doesn't help so much. My guess is that you might need to reduced the weight of beans (e.g. try 380g in 400g profile).

    Also, are you in Aust? or the US? Are you using an extension power cable (partic if in the US)?

    Yes after a bit of experimentation I've had success by roasting 330g as 400g .
