Yemen coffee beans have long been on our wish-list of coffees, but availability has been non-existent due to war and transportation limitations within the country. Further compounding the problem is Yemen's current climate - dry, with minimal rain - which means that only select mountainous regions can grow this coffee.
This results in a fairly high priced coffee, that is nevertheless worth trying once.
These coffees have a subtle wheat-bread flavor with dark chocolate and floral-tobacco notes.
The fabled port of Mocha (1/2 of the origination of "Mocha Java") is in Yemen, and was long considered one of the trading capitals of the world.
Price is for 1 lb (16 oz/454 grams) of whole bean coffee. Ground coffee goes stale quickly so we don’t bother offering it. Our coffee is carefully roasted and bagged to order. Please allow time for custom roasting.
