The most prized coffee by the Yemeni people and the aficionados (passionate). Ismaili is the highest grown coffee in Yemen at about 2500 meters in Bani Ismail, in the region of Haraz.
Offers a more pungent, complex, deep and fruity taste yet brighter. These deep dark notes are highly desirable for example: sage, tobacco, leather, dry fruit, cardamom and woody notes. Its intensity will reveal itself as the aromatics unfold after it has rested for 24 hours after being roasted.
These aromatics really emerge once the coffee is ground, stronger than its actual taste, creating intoxicating aromatics giving you what we call Yemen Syndrome.
Once you drink the resulting cup, all other coffees will taste pale in comparison.
