Why You'll Love It:
Yemen coffee is unlike any in the world. Grown on ancient terraced hillsides in complex mist-fed micro-climates this rare and exotic selection offers rich nut and soothing fruit flavors from the land where coffee cultivation was first perfected. 

Story of the Bean:
In close proximity to the Ethiopian birthplace of coffee, Yemen adopted coffee cultivation 500 years ago so famously that the name of its port city Mocha became synonymous with the beverage. Since that time, Yemen has moved through many periods of conflict often disturbing the rich tradition of coffee production. Recently, the craft has been revitalized by coffee-dedicated Yemeni like Mokhtar Alkhanshali who has worked with producers in war torn communities to bring us this superior coffee created with modern expertise in time-honored tradition.

Make this exclusive coffee even more special by bundling it with David Egger's highly regarded book, The Monk of Mokha.  Get your signed copy here.

Great coffee

Very great coffee but I wish it would cost less. As a native from Yemen, I appreciate La Colombe’s efforts to support coffee from the best places of the world.
