[Homeroast] Roasting decaf beans

I am roasting decaf beans in a Behmor 1600 roaster. I usually roast 3/4 pound at a time. I have tried several of the roasting profiles and stop the roasts just after the end of 1C. So far I am not very pleased with the results as often the beans are over roasted and seem to lose the varietal flavors.
So my question is: can anyone recommend a roasting method for the Behmor that results in a "perfectly" roasted decaf? (The last one I tried was and Ethiopian bean)
I don't seem to have any trouble getting good results with non-decaf so obviously I am missing some essential bit of knowledge. I would very much appreciate any advice.
