    Have to admit these are far from the top of my list of favorites, in fact I won't be ordering them again.
    I bought a few kilo's of these a while back, found roasting no big deal, 750 grams in a Corretto approx 13 mins to first crack, lower heat and approx another 6 or 7 mins and remove at the first few snaps of second crack.
    The beans are quite small, so you will need a cooling sieve with a smallish mesh, I have also found them to be quite dirty, stones etc so keep an eye out for them.

    Tried this bean from day 6 very thick body very smooth, espresso average, cuts through milk well

    Day 10 big improvement in the flavour espresso very nice

    This is the first yemeni bean I have tried and I do like them, will use some in my blends

    looking forward to trying another yemen variety.
