Everyone LOVED this coffee—especially the DARK—so it's back for a second time. It's Yemen, but with a catchy and sweeter flavor profile. (12 oz bag)

  • Sourced from the Al Qafr district in Yemen's south (between Ibb & Yarim)
  • Pearl of Tehama farming & exporting partner

Light Roast: Sweet, mild, indulgent, and enigmatic. Yellow cake aroma as you open the bag. A shapeshifting coffee whose personality is hard to discern. Yemen, but with a new twist.

Medium Roast: Relaxing and indulgent, with non-stop mocha flavor. Yellow cake aroma as you open the bag.

(We also have a second Reserve Medium, the Rayyan Mill Blend Medium)

Dark Roast: Intensely smooth and creamy. An all-time customer favorite. Sometimes a coffee is so good, you just source more of the same exact thing. Don't mess with success, right? This bean is uniquely tailored to make an awesome dark roast.


Here's the Pearl of Tehama (our old school exporting partner) talking about the farmers they work with:

We feel that fields of coffee farmers are our own, and we are benefiting from every individual farmer’s effort in his field. They are not only a source of coffee beans, but also our mutual success. Therefore, we are trying to provide them with any possible assistance, either directly or indirectly.

Our Coffee trade company assists the coffee growing communities through many activities and projects. We help the needy people and distribute gifts during our community common festivals, provide material and technical assistance to farmers and give small interest-free loans to be recovered after harvesting. We are currently building a large nursery for the production of quality certified coffee. Upon completion, it will consist of ten 360m2 greenhouses.

Great coffee

I ordered Pearl of Al Qafr - Dark and was extremely pleased. The coffee was dark and retained its rich natural oils. It smelled wonderful and made a great cup of coffee. I also appreciated the beautiful packaging and the hand-written thank-you note from Al Mokha's owner. Five stars!

Scrumptious Delicious Pearls of Al Qafr

Awesome coffee and really enjoy the customer service from Al Mokha! Looking forward to a great relationship.

THE Coffee?

I never thought I would be willing to pay this much for coffee, but it's gotten to the point where I can't help but think of this coffee from Yemen whenever I'm drinking some other kind of coffee. Good coffee from other places exist, but this stuff is in a class by itself. Warm thanks to Anda whom I've had the pleasure of corresponding with and who really takes care of his customers. May your work bring great benefit to the Yemeni people.

Second order as great as the first

This was my second order of different blends/regions. Both as flavorful and smooth as the first, fresh clean toasty bean character. I’m lazy and often make a pot to last a couple days in a French Press. Day two still delicious, no ashy bitterness. Lovely chocolate character!

Love this coffee!

We always are very impressed by the quality of your products and your service. We've ordered multiple times and have never been disappointed. We received an order that was damaged during shipment and was met with high quality and speedy customer service. Al Mokha is top notch.

Yemeni Beans

Hi Anda. I loved your personal touch and it makes a huge statement that you care about your coffee beans and customers. I am fully convinced Yemeni beans are worth their weight in gold. The Pearls, Reserve, and Medium were perfect/flawless for “pour over” coffee and my favorite for espresso is your Yemeni Dark which is probably the best espresso full bodied taste I’ve every had. The Dark will be my reorder go to in perpetuity - I’m grateful to have enhanced the quality of my life. Keep up the consistency and I’ll be a long term loyal customer of yours. Thanks Anda, Ken
