Late July 2022 we have been able to secure additional coffee from the lot we offered in October 2021 and which sold out rather quickly. The coffee is in multi layered bags lined with Ecotact liners. This is the top preparation of coffee from Yemen. This coffee is prepared by culling together only the ripest, red fruit and air drying the cherry in a specially constructed pyramid system. The result is sweet cupping, fruity and floral flavors with the "one off" character that comes just from here. Typically the cherries are heirloom, often unknown varietals and frequently there is no real selection process. But with this coffee and its preparation selection and processing is taken to an extreme with notable results. Always in high demand and perfectly fresh.
