    Bali Blue Moon Burnt

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I need some advice, I hope this is the right forum. I use an Iroast 2 modified resistor and have done about 60 batches.
    I bought a 1/2lb sample of Bali Blue Moon and roasted 75gr using preset 2
    I shut it down with 1 min remaining. In other words 450 degrees and 9 min. It was burnt and smelled sour. There was very little chaff. I didnt watch it close, only at the end. You cant hear the cracks with this roaster. It tasted terrible.
    I next roasted some peaberry preset 2 10 min, that came out fine. So I went back and roasted the rest of the Blue Moon 125gr. This time I watched it. After 1-2 min I noticed some of the beans were burning, but not the whole bean while others were still greenish. I never saw this on any other bean and I have tried about 20 different types. I let it run and cut it short at 6.5 min. this time. Normally I run the full 10 min on other types. I havent tasted it but Im sure there are some burnt beans.
    *Im guessing that 450 is too hot and will have to develop a cooler profile. Does any one have any experience with this bean? Any Ideas what I can do? I dont have any more but I would like to learn from this.
    thanks
