Caramel, blueberry and cherries in the fragrance. A delicate and refined coffee with complex flavours. Black tea florals combine with dried stone fruit, berry fruit, sugar cane and dried dates.

Farm details

Town: Al Sabar
Location: HARAZ

Producer Story:

Located in the village of Al-Sanaf, Haraz, at 58 years old, Qaaid Ahmed Al Zuragi, is considered one of the oldest and most experienced coffee growers in his village. Although to many, 58 may not sound elderly, Qaaid’s high levels of experience does not result from the length of his life, but instead from his early introduction to coffee farming. Having first learned to farm coffee from his father Ahmed at the age of 5, Qaaid has now farmed for over 50 seasons, providing enough time to perfect his craft.

Although coffee is the focal point of Qaaid’s farm, Qaaid also produces a modest crop of fruits and vegetables, including tomatoes, cucumbers, and potatoes.
