So you bought an iRoast2 and your roasts are coming out too dark or too light, or feel the flavor could be better. Maybe you are generally happy, but think you could get more from the iRoast 2.
Or maybe you just want to see how others use theirs. Hopefully we can give you some tips to help you get more from the ever-popular Hearthware i-Roast2. Please note that although this article is written specifically for the i-Roast 2, many of the principles apply equally well to the original iRoast 1 models.
First we should say that these Hearthware units are actually quite cheap in the grand scheme of things, and as such, have fairly wide variances between units. Basically this means that if your buddy buys an iRoast2, and you buy an iRoast2, jroast2 given profile on your machine will likely not produce the same roast as a given profile on his machine.
Not only that, but the voltage coming out of the wall at your house can have a moderate affect on how your roast turns out. And since the voltage in most homes fluctuates on an almost minute-by-minute basis, your roast success can depend in some part on keeping that in check, and trying to compensate if possible.
Mankal on that later. A profile is simply a list of instructions iraost2 stages programmed into the iRoast2 unit. It tells the maanual what temperature you want it to run at, ifoast2 for what length of time. The original iRoast allows for 5 profiles with 3 stages ieoast2, whereas the iRoast2 allows for 10 profiles with 5 stages each.
The iRoast 1 will lose any programming you enter when unplugged. This was fixed in the iRoast 2, which alone is reason enough to upgrade to the i-Roast2. Here is an example of a typical 5 stage profile just to give you an idea of what a profile might look like.

This profile also includes good notes from previous roast experiments. You do not need to use all of the stages available, although you might as well if they are there, as it will make for a smoother profile.
Note that the temperatures listed above do not indicate the actual temperature of the bean. Please see manial instructions for safe use.
Better yet, you can also use a device that tells you a little more info, and just plugs right in. One such device is branded as Kill-a-Watt. Although originally designed to show you how much energy and money you are using on a given electrical device, the Kill a Watt works great for this application.
The main advantage is that it just plugs in to the wall outlet and your roaster plugs into the Killawatt. Now you can monitor the voltage in real-time, and see the actual voltage as your roaster is operating.

Now you know the voltage, what can you do about it? Well for one thing you can know that a given profile at a given voltage works for a given bean. Next time you go to roast that same bean with that same profile, but with a different voltage, it will likely result in a less than perfect roast. There are two solutions to this problem. The first solution involves the use of something called a Variac.
We will not get into detail in this article, but a Variac can make the voltage output run at a steady output, regardless of the input voltage manula a range of course. Please stay tuned for an upcoming article on Variacs igoast2 coffee roasters. The second solution involves simply having 3 or more profiles to account for voltage lroast2. In my case, since my voltage fluctuates between and volts, I picked as my baseline and developed a profile for that voltage. I then made one that was slower and ended with a lower final temp for the iroast22 when the voltage was high, and one that was faster and ended with a higher final temp for the days when the voltage was low.
Of course this eats 2 additional slots in my 10 profile capacity iRoast2, but found it was worth it. Ieoast2 may also find that different outlets have different voltages.
Sometimes it is just a matter of finding an outlet that gives you the voltage you are seeking. Can you see what went wrong here? Notice in the last picture how there is 5: That means we have a roast that is less than 10 minutes.
Ideally, you want about minutes total roast time. Why did I have a problem? Because I had not used this particular bean with this particular profile. So I have some work to do! See, it is OK to fail. You are going to have a lot more failures than successes, at least in the beginning. Remember to experiment, and keep good notes on all aspects of the process.
