Topic: Harrar Horse (9 msgs / 261 lines)
1) From: Young McQueen
Responding to Paul's not liking this coffee.
I have found this to be the very best coffee to blend with another that is
just too bland for my taste--Peru for example.  I have never cared too much
for it straight either.   I much prefer Yemen Hiraz for that type profile.
Above refers to coffee not espresso!

I roasted the harrar horse for the first time last night (behmor, P1). I made a double shot right out of the roaster. It was a palate shock...WOW...multiple layers of blueberry, chocolate, citrus. I had some more as FP and pourover. All great. This is in my top five coffees ever (along with yirg, guats, columbian, mex altura).
I ordered five lbs along with five of the yirg...as well as some other stuff.
Great coffee makes me happy.

I roasted 8 oz in the behmor at 1/2 lb with 15 sec added. That coasted to an
overall city plus....however, i imagine as a result of dry process...there
were beans at different roast levels...some quakers and some city with a few
beans at FC...but i would say overall at city plus. I had two cups this
morning...what a treat (although I am jittery).

Yes, what level? I roasted one pound so far on P3, to C+. Good stuff, 
and there was blueberry there, but very much in the background. I 
figured maybe a P1 setting might "coax" that blueberry out a bit more, 
and wondering if a full city would help in that regard. It did have some 
smooth chocolate it seemed to me at C+ from the P3 roast.
I also roasted the Kenya "peach" coffee (don't recall the exact name and 
too lazy to go look). I think I ended up at city and not city+ where I 
was aiming. While still very good and the peach was there, it had a 
slight under roasted edge to it. Not enough to make it bad, but just 
enough to get in the way a little. But I could tell just a little darker 
and the peach would shine.
And last night I roasted the Brazil "tangerine" coffee. Hit city+ on the 
nose, and what a nice cup. Sweet, smooth, with a cool tangerine citrus 
twang on the end.
Now I have some of the new Misty Valley on the way, as the cocoa and 
orange I expect to be an outstanding cup, and am looking forward to 
roasting that one.
Interesting. I don't fully remember the names, but I do remember the 
flavors associated with them. :)

I also got some of the menno misty valley along with the harrar and yirg. I am interested in the tangerine brazil...ive previously found the brazils to be kinda standard and boring.

I roasted this to C+ on Saturday. Lovely. In addition to some beans like 
you list below, I also had three small rocks in my one pound batch. It 
pays to pick through these beans *before* they hit your grinder.
Taken a little further, to FC, the difference in roast levels is not so 
apparent. It's a prettier roast and tastes great, too.

Brazils happen to be some of my favorites. And I seem to lean toward the 
dry processed. I guess I like that rustic, more chocolaty notes.
The tangerine Brazil is good, the citrus adds a twist you don't usually 
get with the Brazils, so you might indeed find that one more unique.
But, I roasted the Meno Misty Valley this past Saturday. Man, what a 
coffee! I've been drinking it all day today. Really nice orange and 
chocolate. And the finish, very unique. And boy is this coffee smooth. 
One of the smoothest bodies to a coffee I've ever had, smooth like a 
very good single-malt scotch, actually! I'm really impressed and glad I 
grabbed 5# of it. This is one I hope everyone gets a chance to try.
I guess I should try and make some espresso with it. Next project when I 
get some time. Took some of this to church Sunday, and had several good 
comments on it as well. I highly recommend the Meno MV.
