Topic: Yemen Chocolate Bombs! (4 msgs / 106 lines)
1) From: Les
What a great morning of Cappos and Espressos from Yemen!  All three of the
new Yemens make good espresso in my opinion.  They are all chocolate Bombs!
The Yemen Mokha Ismaili Yemen Mokha Mattari, Yemen Mokha Sharasi,  and Yemen
Mokha Sana'ani  I would have to rate the Sharasi as the best espresso and
the Mattari the best Cappo.  The Sahrasi has a bit of a higher note at the
beginning of the espresso and it drops into a nice peach apricot middle
followed by a nice chocolate finish.  The Marrari handled the milk well and
finished with a malted chocolate finish.  The Sana'ani was an old friend as
I have been drinking this for the last couple of months.  It is winey with a
more rustic note and more of a Caramel finish.  It has been a long time
since I have had a good Ismaili.  The Ismali was my favorite all around for
both espresso and cappo.  It was a little less complex than the Sharasi.  If
you like a mellow espresso this is the one for you.  It was very very
smooth.  If velvet mouth feel is important to your espresso experience.
This is the one for you!  The good news is you can't go wrong with any of
these 4!

I'm drinking Yemen Sharasi this morning and it is possibly the best Yemen I've had. Mine was roasted last night, just to the first hint of second crack, about 11.5 minutes in the P1, and brewed in Chemex. Yet flavors are fully developed after only a 12 hour rest -- dried apricot, chocolate and an aromatic woody dry-leaf flavor. The aroma in the cup is mostly chocolate.

Les,
How dark did you roast these for espresso use?  I got a 5 pounder of
the Sharasi (in addition to 2 pounds I had already ordered) with the
new HotTop, and am looking forward to some nice SO espresso with it.
I think I still have a pound of the Sana'ani left somewhere in the
stash as well.

I roasted all of them to a nice full city plus.  I stopped the roast 2
degrees before going into second crack.  One of the nicest things about the
USRC is I know exactly when second crack will begin.
