Our Custom Process

Instantly Sippable, Beyond Delicious

The dream: an instant coffee method that captures the complexity of even the most extraordinary single origin coffees.

Years of exploration behind us, we’re proud to introduce Yemen Qima Instant. Our custom process preserves each layer of this stunning coffee, while transforming it into shimmering crystals that couldn’t be simpler to brew.


The Discovery of Yemenia

In 2020, Faris Sheibani, founder of Qima Coffee, shared a groundbreaking discovery: his home country’s coffee plants had evolved into an entirely new genetic mother population—Yemenia.
Qima processes this genetically-distinct coffee with an innovative method they call “Alchemy.” Pressure, temperature control, gas regulation, and slow-drying reveal the flavor intrinsic to Yemen Qima Bait Ala.
