An exciting new blend from the two countries that brought us coffee! Red Sea Blend is a curated mix of Ethiopian and Yemen dry-processed coffees, two countries which sit opposite each other on the Red Sea. This coffee, for those who still push into second crack, develops a marked roasted fruit profile and maintains the inherent characteristics of the component coffees, owing to the very high altitudes they are grown at. For those who prefer lighter roasts, this coffee will show excellent bright, ripe red fruits and berries.

A nice blend, though not without some issues. I've roasted 4 batches in my Original Poppery, stopping each just before the first snaps of second crack. The first was 175gr and I picked out 53 quakers. I tried to slow the second roast way down, hoping it would even things out a bit, without success. That's an awful lot of defects for a premium coffee. It would seem that the prep on one or more of the beans used in the blend wasn't very good. The Yemeni component of the blend thoroughly overpowers the Ethiopian component. I get the wild/spicy/earthy/bittersweet chocolate notes I associate with a nice Yemeni, but not nearly as much of the sweetness/fruitiness as I typically get from a good dry-processed Ethiopian. All that said, after 1.5 to 3 days of rest, pour-over brewing yields a very nice, very typical Yemeni in the cup, and Aeropress shots are smooth, chocolaty, and delicious. I'll be revisiting this one in the future.

Roasted to a French roast. Trying it 2 days after roasting, had a very harsh flavor when prepared as a pour-over. 5 days after roasting, tried it with the Aeropress and it smoothed it out considerably. Noted the chocolate hints with the Aeropress

This a great blend - enjoyed by the whole gang here. Using a Whirley-Pop stainless, roasted two-thirds of a pound (or so) of the Red Sea Blend to the very beginning of second crack. I've now let it rest for five days. The bean aroma is outstanding and pleasant - with a warm herbal note, like coriander. A hint of that comes through on the taste, but my novice palate enjoys initial dark chocolate followed by something like maybe marshmallow type flavors. Looking forward to trying a lighter roast next time and see what flavors and aromas that provides.
