Catching up:
4 batches on 5/16 (1.85 lbs)
3 batches on 5/30 (1.39 lbs)
4 batches on 6/14 (1.85 lbs)

419.14 + 5.09 = 424.23 lbs


Edit: Yeez, I'm sure drinking a lot of coffee!

That reminds me. I just did three pounds over the last few days.
Update, just roasted 3/4 of a pound of El Salvador beans. Updated total below

444.32 + 3.75 = 448.07

Earlier this week I combined the leftover Ethiopian beans from different lots to make a full pound and roasted it. I did the same with various beans from Central America too. So two pounds there.
Now I’m roasting a pound of Ethiopian Yirga Cheffe Konga Station (Sweet Maria’s GCX-6317). So three pounds this week.

Update:
Just roasted a pound of beans from Mexico. So four (4) pounds total, not three (3).

449.07 + 4 = 453.07

I roasted one pound of very affordable Burman's coffee ($3.99/lb, Colombian Supremo Antioquia | Burman Coffee). I just poured some into the hopper, so within the next few days I should know whether I can taste the difference. Not 100% sure what I'm hoping for...
448.07 +1 = 449.07.
I now also roasted a pound of the other $3.99/lb coffee I got from Burman's, a Brazilian Mogiana 17/18. I roasted both the Colombian and the Brazilian a bit towards the darker side, but not black. A few beans have oil on the surface. (My DeLonghi Magnifica doesn't like too much oil on the beans.) To my surprise both are very drinkable, not only for breakfast (americano with sugar and milk), but also as (short) espresso. So maybe I don't need to spend more than $4 per pound?

I should roast the other supposedly better (?; or maybe just more expensive) coffees I got before coming to a final verdict.

453.07 + 1 = 454.07.

I would venture to say that you are enjoying the larger batch capability the bullet provides @Lax coach!!!
Yup. Makes roast day very convenient. I can do ~9 lbs in less than 2 hours, including setup and cleaning. With the Gene Cafe, that would have taken me literally all day.

And another pound here, this time Burman's 'Colombian BCT Premium Huila Timana'. I like that Burman is just around the corner in Madison.
Three batches in the SR500; two of them I turned off (=switched to cooling) just as second crack began, the third one I ran a bit longer, 11 minutes or so. I think I'm slowly moving to lighter roasts, with no oil at all on the surface.
499.30 + 1 = 500.3 pounds.

Ruint, who is drinking all your coffee? That seems like a lot to roast, even for a large family.
