Producer Story:

Situated at 2200 masl, producers in the Mikhlaf Al-Rub’ area are blessed by high altitudes and fertile soils, helping create excellent conditions for coffee production. Wadi Bait-Hujairah, located in Mikhlaf Al-Rub’, is ideally situated and has for many years been synonymous with high-quality coffee production.

Producers in the region depend on several cash crops for their income, including pumpkins, peaches, melons, and various legumes. Wadi Bait-Hujairah is also widely covered with Cordia myxa, a plum tree native to the region. Farmers in the region take full advantage of these trees; using their shade to benefit their coffee plants. To create such a high scoring lot, Sheba’s team in Yemen cup through each sample received, no matter how modest the size, making sure to create perfect balance in the cup. For this lot, 12 farms were selected to form this complex coffee.
