2. Roasting profile
Well, the proverbial camel crept out of the bag. Yemen Ismali it be. (http://www.sweetmarias.com/store/coffee...maili.html
). Though certainly not required
, grab the Yemen Sharasi as well (http://www.sweetmarias.com/store/coffee...arasi.html
). I will warn you, I have never met a Yemen I didn't like.
Even if you don't care for Yemen, join us. TomO has the Ismali roasted 7 ways from Sunday (reference his notes). What I am interested in is melange: "With Ismaili it's fun to try a melange of 1/3 City+ roast and 2/3 FC or FC+ roast, either for drip or espresso."
Never played with melanges
but I will this month. As well, if you wish to blend a Red Sea blend (Yemen, a WP Eth and a natural Eth), give it a whirl. I am going to. See who can come up with the killer blend.
Blends are NOT as easy as it sounds. Quantity, roast level(s) are quite the challenge. Simpler is better.
