Yemen Coffee Overview

A Middle Eastern coffee-growing country? You bet. Yemen has a strong history of producing some of the world’s most distinct coffees including the naturally chocolatey mocha bean that sells for up to $240 per pound. Unfortunately, the quality of Yemenese coffee has been inconsistent in recent years.

Yemen actually has a crucial place in coffee’s history; 90% of all plants trace their roots (pun intended) back to Yemen with many words like Arabica having their own roots in the Middle East.
