The full, luscious, “winey” body, spice, and chocolate undertones are what set this Yemen Haraz apart.
Altitude: 1900-2450 MASL
This coffee comes from one of the best-producing regions in Yemen, called Haraz. This region consists of a range of mountains that altitude from 1800 to 2450 MASL and the beauty of this place is the fantastic mild and cool climate it has, in addition to the natural fresh mountain spring water and rainfall that is used to irrigate the crops.
Since the 14th century, a small community not exceeding 15,000(Current figure) people used to live on the eastern part of these high mountains. Ancestors were all farmers owning fruit and coffee farms and used to export crops out of the port of Mokha on the Red Sea.
In the 15th century a disastrous influence of a tree called Qat/ Khat, invaded the country, and farmers believed that it is the best source of income for them due its massive local consumption across the country. Still, they never realised that this tree will once become the nightmare of all times. This horrible invasion led to the removal of coffee trees from many farms in the region.
Farmers of the eastern region of Haraz started uprooting Qat/ Khat and growing coffee again in 2004, and this program influenced others all over Haraz and other parts of the country. The work required a lot of effort, sacrifice, support, help, and much more. The challenges were hard, but with teamwork, belief and love for coffee, the dream came true, and the whole region free from the Qat/Khat tree. The area is now proud to be producing the best coffee in the country.
This coffee is brought to us by Hudaifa Tayeb who lived and grew seeing this whole revolution and transition taking place in his country. In 2015 when the first missile that started the horrible war in Yemen was fired at a location opposite his house in the capital city Sanaa, he decided to flee the country with his family looking for new future elsewhere. He left everything behind him but carried one thing that he always believed will be his connection with his country and region, and that was his bag of Haraz coffee beans. After arriving in Canada in 2018, Hudaifa launched a company with the concept of Human to Human interaction and connected with his fellow farmers, family, friends and business partners in Yemen to start operations of coffee production, export from Yemen. The sole visions and aim behind this concept are supporting the farmers and bringing back glory to this hidden and forgotten gold of 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.
