Yemen coffee is a much asked for item, but for a long time we could never find any that matched our expectations for quality. This coffee changed that. This is a mouthful of complex, full bodied sweet and fruity goodness – the epitome of east African natural processed coffees.
Due to the nature of the industry, we have no information on the farms that grew this.
Yemen has a history of coffee, not dissimilar to Ethiopia. Steep arid mountainous land and the original heirloom varietals that grow almost wild and very organically are harvested at peak ripeness to create this fine natural processed coffee.
