A rare and exquisite natural processed coffee hailing from Yemen. Boasting very unique notes of butterscotch, whiskey, and oak with subtle citrus hints. A full bodied cup. Farm Bio/Background: This lot is predominantly made up of coffee from the regions of Hayma Dakhilya and Haraaz in the governorate of Sana’a. THE REGION OF HAYMA DAKHILIYA Hayma Dakhiliya is a coffee growing region located in the west of the Sana’a governorate, it is one of the governorate’s most well-known regions. The region has 11 mountainous villages located 50km west of the capital city of Sana’a. Some of the villages in Hayma Dakhiliya include Al Yaer, Bait Yaseen, Al Mezab and Bait Al Kabsh. However, due to the rough terrain and rugged roads, the villages are hard to reach and remain isolated from the city. Due to the location of the villages in this region, access to education and healthcare is limited. The villages are home to 83,000 people of which 400 families farm coffee. Alongside coffee, the farming families in Hayma Dakhiliya grow corn, potatoes and qat. The villages are found high in the mountains at an altitude of 2,200 metres above sea level. The weather is mild and rainy in the summer months and cold in winter. The coffee farmers here benefit from fertile soil which is rich in minerals and plenty of aquifers. It is believed that some of the coffee trees are over 100 years old. The trees have adapted to the harsh mountainous environment and continue to produce high-quality coffee with fresh, fruity hints.
