Yemen Mokha Matari

Yemen Mokha Matari



Coffee from Yemen is some of the best in the world, and one of our favorites. But with the region under so much conflict, it is quite difficult to come by these days. So we immediately jumped on a limited selection of the Mokha Matari and are offering a special roast on November 14th. This coffee will go fast, so don’t miss your chance!

Bani Matar is one of the few coffees from the growing regions surrounding the high-altitudes of Sana'a that was traditionally kept separate. All others were mixed to form "Sana'ani coffee" with decidedly mixed outcomes. But coffee in Bani Matar is a bit different, tall old-growth trees that appear like a fruit orchard than a typical coffee farm This lot was secured through Fatoum Muslot, who took over the family coffee business started by her father back in the 1950s, and she has worked to implement practices such as more stringent hand sorting and using ecotact storage bags in order to directly affect the coffee's overall quality.

This coffee is part of the 'Farm Gate' program from our friends at The Coffee Shrub, which means they have negotiated directly with the farmer, and guarantee prices that are at least 50%, and often more than 100%, over fair trade.

Our roast Matari has a rustic appeal with syrupy sweetness, dry to ripe fruit notes, earth and spice notes. Dark grape notes with cocoa along with a sweet tobacco accent, leaves a lasting impression in the finish.
