Coffee farmers in Yemen continue to produce coffee despite the devastating civil war in their country. Thanks to our friends at Cafe Imports for providing us with this phenomenal selection. They write:
"Since roughly the late 16th century, coffee in Yemen has been produced and processed using traditional methods, typically a 'tree-dried natural' process, in which the coffee cherry is allowed to dry on the tree before being picked, further dried on rooftops, husked, and milled. This practice historically resulted in the classic Yemen characteristics of muddled fruit and earthy, deep notes in the cup—but what would Yemeni coffee taste like were the cherry picked ripe?
Café Imports’s Yemen Haraaz Red Marqaha is a special preparation natural: The coffee is bought as ripe cherry from growers, and dried on raised beds rather than branches and the traditional rooftop tarps. The cup is dramatically different—big, clean red fruit, and a juicy, almost nectar-like body."
This coffee will be produced twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. All coffee and merchandise in your order will be produced and shipped on the same day unless you specify otherwise in the Order Notes section of your shopping cart. Please see our FAQ for more details.
