... is actually easier than we thought. We find that the charcoal burns faster and hotter, but the big difference is in the cooling.
In summer, the beans keep cooking, and getting darker after we dump them out of the roasting drum. We use a fan to speed the cooling process but always have to take the beans out of the drum well before they have reached the roast level we're wanting.
In winter, the cooling is much faster and we can keep the beans in the drum almost until they are as we want them - enabling us to be more precise in getting exactly the roast we want.
Winter roasts are much more dramatic too, with lot's of steam and smoke!
