Yemen Coffee Production
Yemen coffee production continues today with many of the same traditions dating back to the 15th century, like drying coffee naturally in the cherry on the rooftops of houses perched on the edges of steep mountain ridges.
Yemen Mocca Peaberry is the product of 23 producers who work closely with an export company called Pearl of Tehama. Through the collaboration small producers have learned processing techniques to ensure consistency in their coffee. Pearl of Tehama is also providing localized receiving warehouses to ease the burden of transporting coffee and ensure safe storage. Pearl of Tehama is currently helping producers organize formally because recognized producer associations can solicit international assistance for need infrastructure improvements like roads, schools and water systems.
Yemen Mocca Peaberry from the Pearl of Tehama
It’s because of Yemen that the world gives the name Arabica to coffee and coffee grown in Yemen is the finest coffee globally.
Coffee is one of Yemen’s major strategic crops, an important source of national income to the families of the producers. Global markets pay higher prices for Yemeni produced Arabica coffee not only because of its export advantages and fame, but also its characteristic high cupping quality compared to Arabica coffees produced in other countries.
Many local exporters of Yemeni coffee follow outdated methods of export, treating the coffee like any other commodity. The Pearl of Tehama believes that the change to the excellent export process should start from the farm itself, and interest in the crop, its care and management is an integrated way throughout all stages of production and post-harvest until shipping.
