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.

About The Coffee Maven

I'm Bryan but most people know me as The Coffee Maven. I grew up outside Boston, Massachusetts and received my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Providence College. My first introduction to coffee was during my college days, when I used it as a source of caffeine to fuel late-night study sessions, but soon I became obsessed with the chemistry of coffee. How did changes to water temperature or contact time affect its taste? Why do beans from Africa taste fruity while beans from Indonesia taste spicy? I launched The Coffee Maven in February 2017 to explore these questions and help others brew their perfect cup. Welcome to my site, and thanks for reading!
