About This Coffee
San Francisco-based Mokhtar Alkhanshali founded Port of Mokha to reconnect coffee drinkers everywhere to Yemen, the very origin that began the world’s infatuation five centuries ago. Port of Mokha works with farmers in the remote Al-Jabal region to natural process heirloom cultivars, producing delicately fruited and floral coffee. The obstacles facing the farmers are many, but in the midst of war, Port of Mokha’s mission to connect farmers to the specialty supply chain offers a vital source of hope.
Lot 3 is a sublimely sweet and clear coffee—a result, no doubt, of the scrupulous attention given to a select group of farmers’ ripe cherry. For this coffee only, Port of Mokha’s processing team extended the drying period to an epic eighteen days. To their (and our) delight, the protracted drying allowed for more of the cherry’s natural starches to convert into sugar, thereby producing an incomparably delicate coffee.
