Earlier this year, we had the pleasure of being a part of the international jury run by Alliance of Coffee Excellence for the Yemen Auction 2020, Discovering Diversity. Presented by Qima Coffee, an organisation dedicated to reviving coffee farming and restoring Yemen coffee trade. We were able to secure a micro-lot of the newly discovered Yemenia varieties from a village in the north-western Hayma Kharijiya region, Bait Alal. Home to 150 coffee-growing families, some of whom have land ownership documents dating back hundreds of years, coffee is deeply rooted in the history of the area and considered a symbol of pride. Full to the brim with bold, velvety, sweetness this coffee is complex, floral and fruity with tropical notes ending in a champagne sparkle. Not your regular morning brew, Bait Alal is in a class of its own. Thanks to organisations like Qima Coffee, we can share in the rich diversity, and experience the flavours of Yemeni coffee.
