This is our first Yemen offering of the season! Yemen Mokha Harasi.
Harasi is a coffee from the district adjacent to Ismaili, and in fact they merge to some degree. All the coffee here is grown on terraces, since little land exists that is flat, except for the lowland deserts. The coffee is hauled up remarkably steep slopes, carried in small amounts, most often by donkey. Local buyers receive coffee in the pod, the entire dried cherry, and that is stored, usually in underground caverns! It’s an amazing process, and unlike any other.
In the cup it’s macadamia and brazil nut with turkish apricot and peaches, as it cools fig, raspberry, and tamarind with hints of tangy rhubarb sweetness. An experience in flavor.
