Chaff after roasting

I'm a newbie home roaster, using a Fresh Roast Plus 8. After I complete my roast, I notice that the beans still have some chaff stuck in the crevice.

Should this chaff be removed ? will it affect the taste of the coffee beans once they are ground?

Thanks for your help.

I have a feeling my Fresh Roast +8 is under-roasting. I don't notice any smoke at all and the beans really get agitated in the chamber. I mean, they really fly around. I'm using the 2 scoops of green beans that is recommended. Maybe there isn't enough heat being retained in the chamber? I've done roasts up to 13 minutes and I hear a few pops but I don't think I have enough experience to know if first crack has really begun or finished. I searched around and found a mod for the fan. I'm going to play around with fan speed and see what that does.

I've slowed down the fan and I think that will do the trick. I may have a little tweaking left, but I was happy with a test roast I did this afternoon.
