Producer Story:

Home to steep slopes and high altitudes, Bait Haiua is a valley (known locally as a Wadi) located in Al Sana Village, Ibb Governorate. Bait Haiua is considered part of Mount Samara, one of the highest mountains located in the northern part of Yemen. Due to natural erosion, the valley floor is filled with some of the most fertile soils in the whole of the Ibb Governorate.

For many producers in the region, coffee production can vary from a few kilos to around half a ton of coffee cherry. To create such a high scoring lot, Sheba’s team in Yemen cup through each sample received, no matter the size, making sure to create the perfect balance in the cup. For this lot, 8 farms have been selected to form this high quality coffee.
