What is your opinion of approaching first crack? Some roasters I've spoken with believe in slamming into 1st crack aggressively and then dropping heat dramatically. Others believe in dropping the heat before 1st crack to create a slow, steady rolling crack. What about you? Do you generally gun into 1st crack or do you cruise into 1st? Do you vary between particular coffees?
My opinion of First Crack? A quite friendly chap and should always happen. Not so much I'll go so far as to say rarely Second Crack, awnry dude.
Ok, to answer question, yes it depends on the coffee. Don't ask how in what way(s) not going to write a book...!
