Yemeni coffee has been grown and processed the same way in Yemen since at least 1450 CE. In modern times, much greater care is exercised in selecting and drying the coffee than was the case a decade ago. This lot immediately stood out from others with its intense strawberry, clove, and honey notes.

Small holders have cultivated Arabica coffee in the mountains of Yemen since the Middle Ages and perhaps well before that as a medicinal plant. Rainfall is very sparse and carefully constructed terraces are laid out rimming the arid, nearly vertical mountainsides to collect every drop of rainwater and water from the mountain springs. Coffee is grown at altitudes of up to 8,000 feet!

Farming is the most traditional imaginable. They do not use any chemical inputs of any kind. The coffee cherries have always been dry processed: the fruits are traditionally dried on patios and then de-husked. In the case of this special micro-lot only ripe red cherries were collected and then dried on raised racks for cleaner results. The beans are roundish and quite small.
