About the source
Coffee is one of Yemen’s most ancient treasures, with coffee history spanning back nearly 2,000 years. Old world varieties and farming practices enduring since the 1500s give beans from this country a flavor spectrum that’s complex and unique. Unfortunately, the ongoing conflict makes Yemeni coffee very hard to come by.
Tucked away in the rocky mountains of western Yemen lies Ibb, a region made up of smallholder farmers. In the area of Al Qafr, our exporting partner, Pearl of Tehama, worked with 130 local coffee growers to acquire this coffee.
Battling inconsistent rainfall, virtually zero access to business or agricultural resources, decaying infrastructure, and the world’s most severe food shortage, these farmers have everything on the line. It’s with great reverence and gratefulness that we are able to share this incredible coffee with you.
