YEMEN NATURAL: Sharqi | Al-Emadi
This is the first coffee from Yemen that we have ever offered & we are unbelievably stoked to share it with you. Yemen is the second oldest coffee culture and with that comes a strong tradition of flavor. Yemen has been in the midst of an awful civil war since 2015 & Cafe Imports has focused on making a difference in the way they know how: “sourcing, buying, selling, and proselytizing about the best coffees they can find”. This amazing coffee comes from a receiving station started by a man named Shabbir Ezzi, who wanted to “make high-quality coffee a viable, sustainable, and empowering pursuit for the farmers”. At any station Al-Ezzi has started or is associated with, the producers are paid a high base price just for bringing it and then premiums on top of that for meeting certain standards. Several smallholder farmers brought together their coffee in order to form this amazing lot. Take part in the ancient coffee tradition of Yemen & enjoy this special, unique offering.
We taste a Fruity Acidity with notes of Red Wine, Dark Honey, & Chocolate with a Sweet, Smooth Mouthfeel.
