It's back! I've been looking forward to sharing this coffee treasure with you for the last two weeks. Last year, our friend and partner in coffee buying, Scott Richardson at Herkimer, got his hands on a rare Yemen micro-lot, one of coffee’s holy grails. This year's lot has finally arrived, one of the only high-quality coffees from Yemen we've ever seen in the U.S., and it's better than ever.
What makes Yemen coffee special? As it stands today, only 0.1% of coffee comes from the historical home and birthplace of coffee trade. The port of Mocha, once the center of coffee trade, is now synonymous with our favorite coffee-and-chocolate combo. Like parts of neighboring Ethiopia, Yemen's arid climate and scarce water supply encourages natural processing; for centuries, Yemen coffee has been spread out under the sky for three sun-baked days of drying. This results in a cup of sparkly, wine-like fruit and rich spice, a unique and sought-after profile unlike any other.
Until recently, Yemen coffee has been unavailable in the U.S. due to conflict in the region and difficulties with export. Lucky for us, Herkimer has a relationship with Rayyan Mill, a group founded in 2011 with the mission of reintroducing fine Yemen coffee to the world. This one-of-a-kind batch is a testament to their efforts in supporting the hard-working farmers of the former coffee capitol of the world.
When life gives you Yemens... make coffee! We feel incredibly fortunate to share this rare coffee treasure with you. Reserve your bag today, from this super-exclusive lot, and treat yourself or someone special to a luxurious sip of coffee history.
