Yemen is a 'lost' origin that holds the world's finest and rarest coffee. It was once said to be the actual coffee birthplace, producing the complex, sweet, and rarest-tasting coffee due to its unique geography and highland landscape.
Due to war and political conflict, sourcing and offering Yemen has become nearly an 'impossible' thing in these unprecedented times. After many years of trying our luck to find something transparent and traceable, we finally met the Jabal Bon estate, driven by a group of young men driven by passion and the desire to revive the Yemeni specialty coffee industry.
This microlot is the first successful shipment directly sent from Yemen to the Arkib roastery doorstep. It remarks on the history of our first Yemeni coffee direct trade. Small steps that mark big history in our history of sourcing the finest coffee in the world
