This new Yemen Hajjah is produced by 97 smallholder farms from the villages of Bani Alawam and Mabyan in the high mountains of Yemen's northwestern Hajjah Governorate. Coffee is one crop that continues to survive all others in this region and makes up almost 50% of most family income in this part of Yemen. All coffees from this part of Hajjah are processed as a natural: hand-picked, sorted for consistency, and dried in a single layer in full sun on raised beds or rooftops. This region is one of the best for growing coffee, and this coffee is always in demand all over the world. Yemen is the birthplace of great coffee. Yemen coffee seeds were used to create the first coffee farms where coffee was grown commercially. Coffee grown in Yemen is grown in sandy loam soil and on steep slopes which requires generations of farming knowledge. The Muslot family has been exporting and growing these amazing coffees since the 1970's, and continued well into the 2000's until the family business was split up. Now, the export business is called Pearl of Tehama for Import and Export and is still owned by Ms Fatoum Muslot. Even with all of the unrest and conflict in Yemen, these amazing coffees continue to shine and the Muslot family continues to export the coffee harvest each year.

Cupping Notes: Blueberry, dried strawberry, anise, and dark chocolate.

This organic resembles the floral & fruity Colombians, but with lighter, almost bouncy body & acidity.Well balanced acidity and body with a bright & clean cup. Smooth taste profile with a somewhat nutty finish with subtle floral & sweet chocolate undertones.
Cane sugar sweetness, medium acidity, and creamy body with sweet caramel overtones and a slight cocoa note on the finish.
Very bright and very sweet, expect notes of blueberry, watermelon, strawberry, and peach.
