Recommended coffees: The Rayyan Mill Blend is a combination of traditional and intense. The Al Wudiyan Valley is brighter and higher toned. The two Farm Blends are excellent, rustic and traditional.

Your green coffee options:

  1. Rayyan Mill Blend: A restrained yet deeply flavorful coffee with notes of allspice and citrus. Sourced by the Rayyan Mill in Yemen, this is their in-house blend of Matari, Haraazi, Ishmaeli, and Haymi origins.
  2. Al Wudiyan Valley: A brighter, yet classic Yemeni coffee. This lot is composed of varietals known locally as Dawairy and Udainy. More details here.
  3. Farm Blend Regular: Traditional and rustic flavor profile with notes of cherry, cocoa, and citrus peels. A winey and tannic mouthfeel. (Haraaz Cooperative)
  4. Farm Blend Peaberry: A basic, classic, and rustic peaberry coffee (Haraaz Cooperative)

More information on the Haraaz Cooperative:

The Haraaz Cooperative™ is the name we use at Al Mokha to describe the fantastic work of Shabbir Ezzi. He has been operating in Yemen since 2006, and we have worked with him since 2014.

He sources his coffee from a combination of about 800 registered farmers (reserve quality) and also from trusted collectors more generally (regular quality).

For the registered farmers, Shabbir provides them with an ID, so he can directly ensure that they are paid fair wages and their hard work is rewarded. He even has an incentive program in place, where the more coffee you produce, the more you earn per pound. These growing wages (better than linear!) prove a strong incentive to work together and build relationships for the long term.

These are good principals but there is far more than that. In the eastern Haraaz Mountains where the cooperative is based, the economics of coffee have improved so much that farmers have chosen to uproot qat—a cash crop and mild narcotic plant—and replace it with coffee. This change reflects how farmers can make more money and live a more dignified life producing coffee. In fact, Shabbir has been so successful, that all the qat has been uprooted.

 

 

 

General Info: As a green coffee, understand that Yemen's is not the typical lot of consistent beans that are identical from shipping container to shipping container. Rather, Yemen's coffee lacks such aesthetic uniformity and instead has a beauty of its own: the beans are smaller and varied in size. This showcases their authenticity, old-world cultivation, and natural processing of 10 - 20 days drying in the sun after harvest.

The magic of Yemen is not the volume of consistent coffee over time but rather the story that each batch and each harvest tells. In Yemen there are 100,000 farmers producing on average 115 kg of coffee annually per farmer. These are backyard, terraced gardens on Yemen's steep mountain slopes. When you roast and enjoy this coffee you will inevitably appreciate and understand the incredible process that brought this coffee from farmer to your cup.

Bulk Free Coffee: For every 10 bags of green coffee get 1 bag for free. Write in cart notes what you want.

Amazing coffee

I've been roasting my own green beans on a Behmor for almost 10 years now. I've always enjoyed coffees from Yemen when I could find them. I've sampled most of the offerings from Al Mokha and have never been disappointed. This is amongst the best coffee I've ever had. Delivery is speedy, ordering is hassle free, and communication is excellent. I will continue to purchase these beans.

An exceptional bean.

Al-wudiyan valley is by far one of the best beans I've got to work with. The beans had a beautiful satiny texture with an unbelievable oil only after a few days. The longer it rest the more the flavor notes intensifies. My favorite method of brewing this one is a Hario pour over with the cloth filter.

Let's talk about an amazing coffee experience

From the handwritten note to the amazing beans, this is what coffee should be. All the beans I roasted were perfect. Drink them by themselves and don't share. This is amazing coffee!
