But Yemen is not part of India, that's why I was more comfortable buying some Yemeni beans. As others on this list have pointed out, I have overlooked some beans from India that SweetMaria's sells. I guess the shear number of beans to choose from overwhelmed me and I just never got that far in the list. In a couple of days I'll roast some ofthe Indian beans and report back.
After 17 hours on an airplane yesterday I got back home to Orange County (CA). Got up bright and cheery at 2 am and put some of the Yemen beans into the GeneCafe. Tom's review of Yemen beans says to a) roast them heavily, darker then I'm used to; b) let them rest for a couple of days;, and c) check for stones. Thank you for that lastone, I found a stone after I poured them out to cool. The smell of these beans roasted that far is just great. Almost a chocolate aroma. We'll see what it tastes like.
