When one thinks of the countries around the world most associated with coffee, Yemen probably doesn't come to mind. But coffee is deeply connected to the country's history and the world owes much of its coffee culture to the little-known country.
Whilst the coffee tree has its roots in Ethiopia, the coffee drink originated in Yemen and up until the early 1700s, Yemen was the world's sole exporter of coffee.
Initially sourcing from 30 farmers in one small community In Yemen, today Qima works with over 2,600 farmers across 53 communities throughout Yemen's coffee lands. Operating directly at farm-level and working exclusively with fresh cherries, Qima Coffee is Yemen's only fully integrated specialty coffee operator and the country's largest specialty exporter.
Join us for an interesting evening of cupping and exploring coffee from Yemen.
