It is very difficult to wreck Harrar.
It is a very forgiving coffee.
Just wonderful.
For the past few weeks I had been roasting it slower, letting it steep 
around 300F and slowly going to first crack, delaying there, and then a 
slow ramp to second.
Taking about 15 minutes for the roast to complete.
This last time I split it, doing two batches of only about 300 Gr each. 
Raced to first, and then dragged out between first and second. Only a 12 
minute roast for each.
No oil on the beans.
Much better roast, for me, and she :)
Brighter, less bland.
As if Harrar could EVER
really
be bland.....

Harrar, being a DP coffee, is one of the ones I really like to push 
my roast on.  As you put it, race to 1st, minimum drying, and finish 
just shy of 2nd at about 9 minutes.  Gives it a "dry" snappiness I like.
