About Port of Mokha :

This coffee is produced from the world's oldest land to cultivate coffee, Yemen. The ancient Udaini varietal is cultivated here and is understood to be the grandfather of 90% of the world's coffee. Coffee here is grown at a staggering 2150-2500 meters above sea level, making it some of the highest grown coffee in the world. The beautiful people of Yemen are known for their generosity and hospitality and have produced a labor of love that is unforgettable to the last sip.

To say that the Yemeni people are hospitable is an understatement. Upon entering a village in the Al-Jabal region, it is customary to be greeted with the playing of drums and singing of poems announcing the guest’s arrival. Following this, a lottery is conducted to decide who will be awarded the honor of hosting the guest. From there, the guest is taken into the home and immediately treated as if they were family. And while these are people of little means, they still somehow manage to serve a feast, provide lodging, and fulfill any and every request someone may have. High in the mountains and deep in those valleys where coffee was first cultivated nearly half a millennia ago, it is truly something both ancient, marvelous and magical to behold. 

Port of Mokha has been on the ground in Al-Jabal longer than any other region we work in and it most definitely shows. The degree of refinement each of their lots express, the consistency in quality year after year, and the continued commitment to excellence that each farmer in the region exhibits makes Al-Jabal the crowned jewel of Port of Mokha’s offerings. This coffee expresses a clear and vibrant acidity with nuanced sweetness all enveloped in a sublime creamy body. We sincerely hope you enjoy.

Because the coffee are grown at such high elevations, we recommend giving them a few days to open up after the roast date before you enjoy them. Ideal is 7-20 days off of roast. Good for up to 35 days after roast date. 

Roast to order and whole beans only.
Ships in 3-5 business days.
