About this coffee :

Whilst some coffee aficionados are aware of Yemen's rich coffee history, being the birthplace of the coffee drink, few are aware of Yemen's critical role in shaping arabica's genetics across the world.

In fact, over 98% of the world's known cultivated varieties of Coffea arabica, can be traced back to Yemen. The arabica species, which was found wild in the forests of Ethiopia, travelled to Yemen at least 600 years ago, where it was grown as a cultivated crop, likely for the first time in the crop’s history.

As it went from the lush forests of Ethiopia to the arid mountains of Yemen, the genetics of the Yemeni trees would change over time to adapt to the new environment through domestication and natural selection. Coffee cultivation continued in Yemen for the next 300 years, during which the genetics of the Yemeni coffee trees gradually changed through domestication and a process known as genetic drift, such that they became distinctly different from their Ethiopian ancestors. These unique trees would go on to become the 'mother' trees of almost all of the cultivated varieties known today. 

Yemenia is a new mother population within the species of Coffea arabica that is found exclusively in Yemen and represents an ocean of unexplored genetics and future varieties that have the potential to reshape the world of arabica for centuries to come.

This sundried coffee is exceptionally sweet & soothing coffee. Velvety & syrupy sweetness mouthfeel pair with soothing notes of blackcurrant & banana, finish with hints of clove aftertaste. Both sweet and charming, providing flavours that would keep you inspiring all the way!
