Our commitment to farmer Ali Zaid continues as for the second year as we bring you 100% of his production. Last harvest was a low yield year across the region, and Ali only produced 30kg of coffee. This year, we have 51kg of it.
It's easier for farmer to keep all of their production for exports if they know they have a committed partner in Qima, and a committed buyer in Rabbit Hole. When the uncertainty of finding a good price and a committed group of buyers is gone, famers like Ali can focus on their crop and farm management so they can produce more, and better coffee.
It has all that we love in a classic Yemeni coffee: character, body, ripe berries and an approachable complexity.
With his family's help on the farm, they produce an incredibly clean and sweet profile.
