I usually use P3 for Indonesians based on general recs/guidelines.
Today I roasted 10.7 ozs of SM's Java Sunda Ambet Kasih on 1# P3 A. 1C was at 18:21 and 2C at 21:00. I was aiming for FC to FC+ and probably got the latter.
This is a longer roast than is usually considered optimal and this scenario is common when I use P3.

Should I consider using P1?
I'm tempted to start using P1 for everything other than decafs.

PS: I use the A profile instead of C as that should shorten roasting times a little.

Barry,

I have been roasting a lot of Sumatra these days.  I found that using the recommended P3 I was getting 20 to 22 min roasts (10 oz) which was almost baking.

I changed to P1 and now my roasts are 18 minutes to FC+ with slightly better quality.

I think it is bean-related.  I also roast Monkey-Blend for my son.  I believe it has Brazil in the mix (?) so I use P3 and conclude a 10oz roast, FC+, at around 18 minutes.
