When I went to the Sweetmarias website to order some Yemen Mokha Ismaili, I saw that they now also have Yemen Mokha Sharasi and I don't know which to get.  I use an Astra Mega 1 espresso machine for my coffee at home, but also have friends I provide coffee who drink it as drip coffee.  I like sweet chocolaty coffees.  I was originally going to roast the Ismaili using the SM suggested 1/3 City+ and 2/3 Full City+; I'd probably do the same with the Sharasi.  The coffees are the same price.

I'd prefer that responses actually deal with Yemeni coffee, and prefer responses don't branch out into "oh but you really need to roast ... not Yemens."

Honestly, you can't go wrong with either.  Ismaili is sometimes regarded as the best Yemen but they are all good.

I never had a Yemen from Sweetmarias that was not good. Nowadays, you usually don't have much choice. Just ordered 10 lbs of each.
