Roast: NA Review Date: December 1999
Origin: Mattari growing region, west of Sana_a, Yemen, southern Arabian peninsula. Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: A very clean, bright version of the fruity Yemen cup: the wine tones are rich and smooth, with only a hint of sweet ferment near the finish. Surprising floral notes at the top and a long, clean, sweet, chocolate-toned aftertaste.

Notes: A very clean, bright version of the fruity Yemen cup: the wine tones are rich and smooth, with only a hint of sweet ferment near the finish. It 's entirely appropriate that the best Yemen coffee to come to my cupping table over the past few months comes from Kevin Knox at Allegro Coffee, who has long been an ardent admirer and supporter of this most ancient and traditional of coffees.

Who Should Drink It: Any way you drink this coffee you should be able to taste the primeval, complex sweetness of fruit drying in the mountain sun.
