[Homeroast] Very odd Yirga Cheffe

I roasted a 150g batch of this bean. It seemed to take longer to get it
through 1C and into C+, about 418F.
As for quakers, I had 7-8 in that batch. That isn't too unusual.
As I roast more of it, I will keep and eye out for other traits.
Have you nailed a roast yet? Don't you use a Quest M3?
What is your profile for this one?
