Curator's Notes

It's back! I've been looking forward to sharing this coffee treasure with you for the last two weeks. Last year, our friend and partner in coffee buying, Scott Richardson at Herkimer, got his hands on a rare Yemen micro-lot, one of coffee’s holy grails. This year's lot has finally arrived, one of the only high-quality coffees from Yemen we've ever seen in the U.S., and it's better than ever.

Roaster's Notes

Complex coffee highlighted by bright and sweet flavors of strawberry jam, red apple hard candy, and fresh vanilla bean. Subtle hints of cinnamon and milk chocolate come through on the finish. Sourced from Rayyan Mill, a tiny group with the intent of bringing this exotic and often volatile coffee to the world. Historically, microlots have not been available from Yemeni producers due to lack of interest. Rayaan is empowering these individual producers by forging relationships, processing their small lots, and exporting them independently. Elevation of 1675-1755 masl, heirloom typical varietals. Traditional natural patio drying followed by washing after depulping.

"This was very good. It’s rich and velvety, notes of spice, with a complex profile. Goes down smooth and pairs nicely with milk chocolate fudge."

"Complex wood and spice flavors give way to a chocolate/cinnamon finish. Not for the faint of heart: there is a bracing bitterness and astringency, but I felt it was balanced."
BENJAMIN 10/07/2020
★★★★★
"A complex, kinda sweet but very enjoyable brew, nice & light for an afternoon cuppa."
JOE 06/14/2019

"This is coffee that tastes like the memory of a cookie from childhood. This wasn't a morning coffee for me, but an afternoon/evening movie with the animals watching bad movies in a bathrobe kind of coffee."
ANTHONY 05/11/2019
★★★★★
"Keeping this as simple as possible, the Yemen Al Ghayoul is one of the best coffees we have ever had! After the first taste we called my sister and told her to order some immediately! We will order more too. This coffee is worth every penny. "

"I tasted some fruitiness and a spiciness that is reminiscent of black pepper. I recommend Yemeni coffees if you can get them because they are unique and uncommon."
SARAH 04/15/2019

"One of the best that Beanbox has to offer. I've purchased several "top shelf" single origins and this was the first time I felt it was worthy of that distinction. Every tasting note comes through beautifully with my chemex."
DAVID 04/08/2019
★★★★★
"Unfortunately, this was one of the most un-enjoyable coffees I've had in a long time. A little sweetness in the front, hint of spice but the dominating woodsy taste combined with some strange herbal notes really spoiled it for me. Brewed french press."
