Producer Story:

Amongst the most famous regions in Yemen for quality coffee production, Masar is home to fertile soils and wide green areas stretching as far as the eye can see. Located in the Manakhah/Haraz District, Sana’a Governorate, the name Masar relates to the mountain on which these coffee farmers are situated. At its peak, the Masar Mountain reaches 2,700 meters above sea level: although farms on Masar fall short of reaching the top, it is perhaps no surprise selected producers working these highland coffee terraces are synonymous with some of the best examples Yemen has to offer.

For many producers in the region, total coffee production may only result in a few kilos of green beans per harvest. To create such a high scoring lot, Sheba’s team in Yemen cup through each sample received, no matter the size, making sure to identify perfect balance in the cup. For this particular coffee, 6 farms were selected
