The true “mocha” coffee from Yemen
Yemen is home to genuine Mocha coffee. The name coming from the port of Al-Makha which during the 17th century was the foremost coffee export port in the world! Yemen Mocha is one of the worlds most unique coffees. Organically grown on rich fertile rain-fed terraces reaching up to 2500 metres in the western Yemeni mountains.
The full, luscious, “winey” body, spice, and chocolate undertones are what set this Yemen Matari apart.

It is not unusual for Yemeni’s to spice up their coffee with Cardamom, Cinnamon and other spices that the region itself grows.
