    Completely trivial but absolutely scrumptious blend

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Since Yemeni beans are so expensive, and since it was a busy week at work - my bag of Yemeni rapidly dwindled...

    So: 50/50 Yemeni and Daterra (and presumably any Brazilian bean) is a very nice combination! The lovely buttery mouthfeel of the Daterra comes through, with the fabulous flavour of the Yemeni dominating.

    At last, a means of eeking out my precious beans :-?

    Hi KJM,

    What Yemen & Daterra beans are you referring to?.

    GDay Lenny - the Yemenis were one of the four on Bean Bay (I cant honestly say which, because Ive been doing all four lately...).

    The Daterra is the classic "Daterra Sweet Collections". I suspect the Ceja would be a fine substitute. Although: the Daterra has just a delightful buttery mouthfeel.

    I just roasted some more ::) This week at work will be busy too :(

    Im just stoked that the full-on Yemeni character comes through, but with an even better mouthfeel.

    Hi KJM
    This sounds like a great combo - Ive been thinking of a Brazilian/African blend myself. Did you roast them together (like your house blend) or separately then blend?

    Hi KJM,* The dater sweat collection is a great blender!

    I did a 250g Yemen sanani mocha today looking forward to tasting!

    GDay Matt - they are roasted separately. I did the Daterra for a colleague - so he could try a bean with a real creamy/buttery mouthfeel.

    It does tone down the Yemeni just a tad, but by crikey it is nice ;) I prefer the straight Yemeni, but Im just a bit too stingy ::)

    Yup. I have 4 different Yemeni beans, but cant decide which I actually prefer. Theyre all up there!

    The small additional point: the Yemeni is (surprisingly) basically very nice +1 day onward from roast... Those Yemenis are just amazing ;)

    Thanks Kevin
    Have to give that a shot. Those African beans are so soft! Learnt that the hard way before in blended roasting… lots of black features through the batch ;D
