Many of the coffee suppliers I buy from list Harrar as "out of stock" or
aren't listing it at all. Is it out of season or is the unrest (read
"war") in the Ethiopia Somalia area cutting off the supply lines.

Damn Damn Damnity Damn Damn!

Do you mean "whither"?

From sweetias web site:

"2006 Harars: It's a tough year for Harars,...." and "..But really it
was kind of a disappointing Harar season.." and "..All-in-all, there are
great Ethiopian Yirgs this year, while a nice Harar was just a
pipedream.." I sense a trend here. :-)

http://catesgreencoffee.com still has some for sale - no "vintage" listed.

The fly crop that comes in Oct & Nov apparently sucked so bad nobody
stocked it. The new crop should be here ch or April. I think
Coffeewholesalers may still have some from last year.
