I sent a small sample of this Yemen PB without any label to an astute home coffee Roaster / Customer who is not yet one of my regular Reviewers with the simple request, What do you think? The following is her review.
"I finally got some free time today, to roast your mystery peaberry
sample. I am literally sipping the first cup as we speak. This has
been a busy week so I waited until I had some time to sip and savor.
My first impression is Yemen as I am getting chocolate and
fruit..maybe strawberries, and that Yemeni hint of spice. A few sips
later I almost changed my mind to Ethiopia because there was so much
fruit..as in strawberry, blueberry, and wine notes....but that spice
note still Yemen.
I roasted this quite light..a tad bit more than I would a Yemeni...and
yet I am not getting any 'wood' types notes...so if this is a Yemeni
this is one that could take a light roast (as in Ethiopia Dry process
peaberry type light roast).
