I just got a Hottop after > 2 years of Behmor roasting.
So, I know that basically one needs to be gentler with decafs and that the sound and site cues are off.
I also slow down 1C a bit so I don't zip right by it and fly into 2C.

Anything else either specific to the Hottop or general?

I've looked around on the various forums and on-line resources, but haven't found much else.

  1. fist pour in F0 P10
  2. 100C F1 P10
  3. 120C F1 P8
  4. 190C F3 P7
  5. get the temp XC F5 P5
  6. X + 7C for lighter roast or X + 8C for darker roast.

Thanks.
A few questions:
1) What's XC (first crack?)
2) Is that with a modified probe or built in. If built in is it a 2K?

X is the  temperature reading when 1st crack.

most likely will be different every roast.

I just got to know they have those real time data logger from your post. need more information where to get those.
