Double sorted the beans, the uglies in the greens and the uglies in the final roast.

    P1 Auto to first crack around 9 mins, then P1 manual and coast to around 1 min to go, hit the rosetta stone (C) at first rolling crack, with double drum speed (D).
    Once I had about 1 min to go and the temperature started to stall - hit full heat P5 until cool. I reckon I got one or maybe two second cracks as it started to cool - I opened the door and blast the fan to cool it quicker.
    That was the espresso roast which got the silver.

    I think my latte was similar but I should have gone slightly darker to cut through the milk. It still scored well (maybe around average) but not great So super keen to get some feedback/hear others milk profiles as I mostly drink short lattes/piccolos/machiatos.

    Filter - was really a bit of a guess as I don't drink a lot of filter. But I knew I wanted to go even lighter again and maybe coast more to get more fruit. Easily my worst score and I think it showed the lack of methodology/knowledge on filter roasting/drinking.
    Thanks so much for sharing! As a beginner roaster on the Behmor 1600 and most recently using a HeatSnob, this sort of info is Gold! Congrats on your results.

    Thanks Tangles to you as well for sharing your approach. So many decisions to make can be a bit daunting when starting out on the home roasting path. I appreciate you sharing your knowledge with us all.

    Hope it goes ahead again this year... Always fun to have a challenge. Last year's format was a good leveller. Happy if it's same again with a new mystery bean!
