Think of Yemen like an old Hound Dog Taylor record you found at a record store. An original who was raw and laid the foundation for guitarists and music forever. Yemen has been organically (greenies I see that smile) producing some of the best quality coffee for centuries. They were one of the originals, just like Hound Dog. They stick to their roots about coffee there. Mostly all of it is wild, (like what you tell yourself you are in the mirror), grown in the country, and you can taste that wild richness in each cup. Although lately, Yemen has been lacking in its coffee exports. Let’s give it the comeback it deserves. Feel good about yourself.
To learn more about Yemen and it’s tasty coffee and also read a good story, pick up The Monk of Mokha.
