Unroasted - Yemen Matari Mocha


Sold out. More stock expected soon

About the bean

Five-hundred years ago, the coffee now known as Matari Mocha was grown on remote terraces cut into Yemen's semi-arid mountains, at the country's highest altitudes. Today, this prized coffee continues to be grown in the same traditional way, harvested by hand, separated from the husks by millstones.

Yemen was the first place to commercially grow and trade coffee, from the ancient port of Mocha, where coffee was first shipped to Europe.

What to expect

Yemen Matari Mocha has a smooth, medium body, with a dry bittersweetness that yields a complex, rich, and fragrant coffee, particularly when roasted dark.

One of the world's most distinctive coffees.

Comments: "Very dark chocolate with light acid notes, very full flavoured. This coffee has bit of an edge to it. There is a pleasing bitterness on the back of the tongue and a slight astringency. It is strongly flavoured, but not rich or oily; a bracing cup with which to start the morning."
