Sure machines a great build but I find the bigger the roaster, the harder the profiling. the smaller roasters are far more responsive to smaller changes. Its tougher to frag it around the corners of the course than the smaller roasters.
I would agree. We have a 1 lb San Franciscan as well for sample roasting and it certainly takes more attention and therefore room for experimentation. Like the old Mini Cooper in the car rally (sorry, couldn't help myself). I need to get back roasting on those big San Franciscans
