THE FAMILY BEHIND THIS COFFEE
Alhamdani family is considered to be the oldest producers and exporters of specialized Yemeni coffee “Mocha”. Their ancestors began coffee planting, production and trading as many as 130 years ago, in Bani Matar (Bao’an district).
Preciously kept and preserved are old Arabic correspondence letters that were shared between the great grand fathers of Alhamdani and coffee agents from the Mocha port and Aden port.
Today, the family is proud to own many acres of land and several coffee plantations specialized in producing superior quality Mattari coffee.
A REPUTED COFFEE
Yemen Mocha coffee is widely considered to be one of the best in the world boasting rich ancient history and distinguishing itself with such unique flavor notes that simply cannot be found elsewhere.
The term “Mocha” comes from the port city Mocha which is located on the Red Sea coast of Yemen. Largely recognized as a major trading ground for coffee between the 15th and 17th century, it is still used for shipments to this day.
To this day, Yemeni coffee is grown on the fertile lands of Yemen’s rugged terrain, fed by the appropriate amount of rainfall and protected from sunlight thanks to natural tree cover.
