Lot 1a: Wadi Al Mahjr

Within Al Mahjr village is Wadi Al Mahjr, it is a valley located in one of the highest coffee growing areas in Yemen. High above the clouds, it sits at an altitude of 2250 meters above sea level. With its sun exposure of 7 hours and cooler night temperature of around 6ºC, an ancient typica cultivar emerged to survive these harsh weather patterns. Farmers within Al Hayma region claim to have some of the oldest coffee trees in Yemen. This is yet to be scientifically verified but we do notice ancient typicas unique to this area which have proven to translate into exquisite notes on the cup.
