As another testimonial to the Sanaa Ibb Highlands, I picked up 30 lbs to square myself away about 3 weeks ago and done three roasts with it. The texture and body is really where this bean shines at light-medium or medium roasts. Great flavor but a texture that I haven't gotten before, so creamy and smooth. Fantastic stuff.

Yeah, as a general rule, Yemeni coffees need loads of rest -- often up to a month -- before they reach peak flavor.

I wait 6-7 days on all Yemeni coffees, finishing off before 14 days.

As no new Yemeni 'unicorns' have yet emerged, I picked up this from Klatch to try:

Been itching to try my hand at roasting a Yemeni coffee for a while. Will report on my findings. 8)

It's nice they're donating 10% of the auction proceeds to a cool foundation :)
