About: An extremely small lot representing the first ever discovery of a new genetic coffee group out of Yemen where small holder farmers have been cultivating coffee for centuries. Amongst the remote Jabal Haraz mountain range in western Yemen, smallholder farmers inherit their land at a young age and for many, coffee is their only source of income. The discovery of the new, Yemenia Genetic group – likened to Gesha – and an ensuing international auction run by Qima Coffee and the Alliance for Coffee Excellence has offered a vision for a better future and delicious new coffee for us! 55 members of the Mutawasat Community bring together their ripe cherries of this newly discovered Yemenia group and process them naturally for this lot which placed 9th in the Yemen Coffee Auction 2020. The result is an intriguing medley of flavours – juicy black cherry and rich dried orange are balanced against crisp honeydew, hints of nutmeg and a silky dark chocolate body. A distinctive cup from the birthplace of coffee culture! Roasted by Five Senses.
