The Al Wadi region of Yemen is vast, and extremely difficult to source coffee from. But, the exceptional effort is worth it for this exceptional coffee. This varietal boasts notes of deep dark chocolate, dried caramel, and lush fruit. Every cup feels like a treat.
Considering the price, I was exceptionally careful on how I brewed. The beans are very small, I used my Capresso ceramic burr grinder (any other method can overheat the beans makes your coffee bitter) I measure out in grams just enough for one cup and used my Techinvorm Moccamaster Coffeemaker (never use a Mr. Coffee - burns the coffee). The cup was smooth, mellow, with hits of chocolate at the end. This is the smoothest non-bitter, non-acid, cup I think I’ve ever had and rates up there with Blue Mountain and Kona coffee. I don’t drink a lot of caffeine beverages, this coffee did not make me jittery, apparently it has a lower caffeine level than most coffees.
Def prefer the Chemex to the aero press, and was very excited to try this world-renowned bean. Not sure I can justify the cost again but really wanted to taste and see what the big fuss was about. Prob not my personal preference (I like Central American beans primarily) but was glad to see it was not as close to Ethiopian beans (aka overly berry-forward) as I had feared. Glad I gave them a try and the ordering and shipping was flawless.
I was excited for this to arrive. It was good. I had the problem of getting the right grind which made the coffee BITTER. (I almost cried). It is worth it though.
