Bani Al Areef is a village located west of Haraz. Here, around twenty farmers cultivate coffee as the main source of income for the village which is about 16km from the center of Manakhah District. Coffee is cultivated on the agricultural terraces, located at an altitude from 1700 up to 2100 meters above sea level. The exact history of coffee cultivation in the village of Bani Al Areef is unknown, but the cultivation of coffee in Haraz has been documented for at least 400 years ago, and the farmers here cultivate and harvest coffee in the same traditional way, since no modern machines for cultivation, irrigation or harvesting have reached the village. Traditionally farmers in Yemen work on small plots from 60–70 trees to 400–500 trees. The variety mainly is Jaadi/Udhini, which is a large tree known for its good yields. Each producer's delivery is recorded at the time of delivery to the processing station, and the farmer receives a price based on the quantity of coffee delivered, its moisture content at the time of delivery, and density.
