Were your ears burning? We ended up nerding out about wine and local produce more than coffee. Also, this sentence must occur in every StyFo meetup message exchange: “I thought you're white!”

I've been drinking this recently: http://www.gocoffeego.com/products/Bird-Rock-Coffee/Yemen-Haraaz-Red-Maraqaha-3704.html It's sold out, but it's really excellent, with lots of berry sweetness that you can even smell without brewing it.

I've begun to just assume all forum members are Asian until proven otherwise.

Got a delivery today. What should I start with?

I'd go for the mocha.

I'm really enjoying this Duromina. Had some Yirgacheffe before that was very displeasing so it's a welcome change.

So AY brought me (turns out exactly) 40 g of this natural process Yemen and it was fantastic. No access to hot water but there was a microwave in the cafe gift shop at sequoia national park. Used a skerton grinder, aeropress, and scale (17g, 3 min for the first one then 23g 4 min for the second one and diluted). Got a lot of weird looks from people and one guy asked what I was using.

Is Yemeni coffee normally natural processed? I've had mokas but now I realize they might not have been Yemeni cuz I swear they were all washed.

Anyways it was fantastic. Opening the bag I get a giant whiff of blueberries and blackberries. The brew has a little bit of it but mostly earthy chocolatey barky notes with a hint of acidity. Similar but also so different from Ethiopians.

Beans were really tiny too. Roast looked really dark but no oil.

I want more. Going to keep an eye out for Yemeni coffee

Glad to hear you enjoyed it! Dry processing is probably the oldest and most primitive way of milling coffee, and I think all the Yemeni coffees I've heard of is dry processed.

To celebrate national coffee day I'm enjoying Peet's Arabian Mocha Sanani today!

Excellent choice! Probably the most unique coffee of your stash, not that the others are bad. I had more of the Yemen today.
