Yemen, Haimi, Natural

A rare and beautiful coffee that reminds us of berry syrup with cinnamon and nutmeg. The depth of flavor is mesmerizing, perfect to explore as it cools.

The Story

Yemen Mocca Haimi is sourced from family owned plots located in the Al-Haimah districts in the Sana'a governorate within the western highlands of Yemen, parallel to the Red Sea. Yemen is perhaps the most historic coffee growing region in the world, second only to Ethiopia, with a lineage spanning more than 2,000 years. Coffee production continues today with many of the same traditions dating back to the 15th century, like drying coffee naturally in the cherry on the rooftops of houses perched on the edges of steep mountain ridges. Mocca Haimi is the product of 23 producers who work closely with an export company called Pearl of Tehama. Through the collaboration small producers have learned processing techniques to ensure consistency in their coffee. Pearl of Tehama is also providing localized receiving warehouses to ease the burden of transporting coffee and ensure safe storage. Pearl of Tehama is currently helping producers organize formally because recognized producer associations can solicit international assistance for need infrastructure improvements like roads, schools and water systems.

    Brewing Method Recommendation: It is hard to make this coffee taste anything other than outstanding. Try Kalita Wave at 15:1 ratio to accentuate the baking spice notes, a Hario V60 to bring out a raspberry brightness that balances the sweetness of the coffee. Automatic drip brew is also great at about a 16:1 ratio. Espresso is strikingly good at 2.25:1 ratio.
