I've been fond of Yemeni coffees since the first one I tried. So when CBC offered 4 of them, I got a sampler to decide which one I wanted, and decided on the Burrai. Since there weren't any reviews for this coffee, I thought I would at least let it be known that a person who has been roasting coffee for ten years or so found this coffee very rewarding. I use a Poppery 1 (1500 watt) to roast it because it produces a more even roast than my gg/stir crazy set up. I take it about 30 seconds into second crack. Then I let it rest for at least 3 days. It gets better and better for the next 10 days or so. There's an expression in Chinese, pa mien feng, which translates to winds coming at you from 8 directions. This coffee is similar; the tastes when you drink it seem to be coming at you from parts of the taste compass you didn't know existed. I primarily drink it as espresso, though drip is of course good as well.

Just wanted to say that the reviews here are accurate in that letting this coffee rest for two weeks really brought this cup to life. I took it to a few seconds into second crack after reducing power somewhat after first crack finished. Similar to the Misty Valley Ethipioan but more fruity and complex. Only problem giving this review is that it might cause you to buy this lot out before I buy more!! Maybe the best cup I’ve roasted

First time I bought and roasted coffee but did my homework first. I choose Yemen because I generally like the flavor. I don;t have any fancy roast machine or special oven - I used a stainless steel pan but the results were unexpectedly good. First batch was on high temp set-up (350-400F) and dropped the beans on already hot pan and the result was a brown color and buttery coffee; after second crack I lowered the temp and kept it for about half minute to a minute (just watching the color). Smell and flavor were rich and coffee felt smooth. Second batch was on 300F slow roast (it was long time until I saw beans changing color), and the result was a light color and nutty flavor. I am not quite the biggest fan of this type of coffee as I feel you need 3-4 cups to wake up but other persons told me they prefer it to the previous batch. And BeanCorral send the coffee package quick just as they were promising.

Roasted this to a city+ Thursday night and smelled Sunday night and got notes of blueberry muffins. Ran a 12 cup drip today Monday) and my wife picked up on the fruity notes and for me the blueberry came through clean and clear. Very enjoyable.

It’s not the coffee I excpected, but on the whole it turned out to be an acceptable cup of Joe. I was told that they did not have the original coffee that I had ordered.

I mix my Yemen with a good Indonesian Java 40/60 because I usually do not appreciate roasters who say that they have Mocha Java but it is usually a java with Ethiopian so I enjoy roasting my own. I have several methods that I roast with since I have been roasting my own coffee since 1982, but I really enjoy roasting using my snack machine on the stovetop which is a direct drive method similar to the whirly pop popcorn popper- which is much better for roasting coffee, heavier duty pot and direct drive so you can roast between a pound or 2 with no problem. I have enjoyed the Yemeni coffees so I just bought 3 pounds of each in order to try them all. Of course I have never found any coffee that I have not enjoyed. ty

My favorite from the sampler. Let it age a couple of weeks after roasting for best aromatics. I roasted until the beginning of second crack.

As usual with the folks at coffee bean corral shipping was fast and the Yemen Mocca was a great choice. The flavors were out of this world.
