  • Yemen Bani Ismail

    It seems like theres certain times of the year that certain varieties are offered which is not surprising because of the seasons for harvest; the yemens were offered in earlier this year in March. Will it be about the same time next year that the yemenis will appear?

    Seasons of harvest are fairly fixed.

    Milling, storage, sale at origin, international shipping, customs, AQIS and broker distribution all add the "X" factor that is anyones guess!

    I have cupped some great Ismaili samples but the container hasnt arrived yet. Might be Jan, Feb or even March before we get em. There are some past crop one around but I would rather wait.

            Well worth every cent paid for the Yemenis I reckon.

                        LOL - good luck with that.

                        I did buy some last year. And maybe I am roasting it incorrectly, but I am just not a big fan. For espresso, I have had much better beans at less than half the price. I get so much more from some of the Indonesians or Ethiopians.

                        I am glad I have tried them, but without offending anyone - I think they are overhyped

                          thats one of the great things about coffee and unique palates Ben_S, we all enjoy different flavours!

                          Hey TG, if Linda does succeed in getting ALL the Yemen when it comes in, Ill push her over and you can steal the greens

                          Your wife will have to share with me though! ;D

                              You too BM?. The last 1kg I got down to had several small rocks in it...along with corn kernels and hay. ;D

                              Ben, I would love to catch up with you one Beanbay pickup and compare notes on the Yemen.
