    Help roasting Yemen Bani Ismail

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I roasted up about 500g of Yemen Bani Ismail and wanted some advice as to the best roast profile for this bean. I did this batch to what I think is referred to as a "City" roast - with some oily surface on the beans and this took a good 20 seconds in the SC.

    I normally roast 10 seconds or so into the SC with other bean varieties, but Yemen seemed to me to roast more unevenly so I let it go a little longer. Not sure Im a big fan of the oily style of roasts.

    Id appreciate any suggestions on what profile best suits this bean, and ideally, how far into the SC I should go to extract the best this bean has to offer.

    Thanks

    I like mine just before it goes oily, but is still glossy.
    In my Gene Cafe my first roast ran rapidly between 1st and 2nd (less than 2 min) so now I turn the heat down and slow it up to let the flavours develop. Im aiming for at least 4 minutes and preferably 5 or 6 between 1st and 2nd.

    Hey Sam, Just to clarify a City Roast is one that has just cleared First Crack. One that has gone 20sec into SC is normally considered a Full City+.
    I took my batch to about 30sec into SC, but needs to Coast from FC as there are lots of uneven sized beans. If the heat is turned up too high from FC to SC youll find some beans will oil up really quickly while others has barely got out of FC.
    My advice is to rest the Yemen for at least a week for the extraordinary body to fully develop, youll find the whole batch will be covered in oil after about a week.
    Its actually one of my favourite origin, So complex that it doesnt need to be blended with anything else. And works so nice in milk as well. :P :P :P
