Colombian Supremo. The BIG beans.

I did get a large quantity of Yemeni (before the bombs started falling).

Not the cleanest green coffee I have ever had (fair amount of non coffee bits in it) but natural processed beans come with bonus material sometimes. The sizing is all over the scale from super jumbo to small peaberry. This did not seem to affect the roast.

Just have to sort the beans like they are pinto beans to keep the rocks, sticks and dirt out.

I can say without exception that the taste is out of this world. Well worth the wait and expense.

The source is too unreliable for it to be the "everyday regular one and only"

Interesting. I've had some Yemeni as well, about 6 months ago and it was good, very interesting and flavorful, but not screeching me to a halt and OMG what was that? kinda good.

For size, I think I got your Colombians beat. Ever try Ka'u beans (from Hawaii)? they are so big if you lift one you might get a hernia. Nah, joking of course, but they are HUGE, and very well sorted, very consistent and no rubbish. expensive though.

Speaking of Yemen, the beans were mokka variety, which I have not run across anywhere else... but I just read that there is a small farm on Maui (also in Hawaii, which is where I am, incidentially) that is growing this varietal which I hear is difficult to grow. I think I will try a small sample of a few pounds from this maui farm, once my current stash of Ethiopians and Guatemalans gets thinned out a little. I did like the Yemeni mokka, it was just a bit pricey and hard to find.
