On average, Yemeni farmers only produce two bags of coffee a year.
If there are any words which could sum up what Sufi Monks’ yemeni coffee tastes like, they would be ‘incomparable taste’. Yemeni coffee which today is uncommon is renowned for its unique characteristics in taste. These unique qualities are said to be from the historical methods used to grow this once famous cup of coffee.
Stoned Farms: Yemeni coffee is grown in the most beautiful stoned terraced plots which are carved into semi-arid mountain sides. These terraces are positioned at high altitudes, which attributes to the high level of quality that Yemeni coffee is so renowned for.
Sun-kissed Drying: The best drying method for Yemeni coffee plantations have been the open air type. The coffee is often dried on flat roofs of farmers homes or within the valleys of plantation areas. Due to the geographical location of Yemeni coffee farms, the dry method over the wet method suits the climate and resources of the farmers better. This ancient natural processing method is said to elevate coffee notes.
Organic through history: Yemeni coffee has historically been organic in its nature of farming. It is said that extreme poverty of the region led to no agrochemical inputs which has produced a better coffee.
Ancient and unique varietals: Yemen is said to have a considerable amount of aging coffee trees. The country has an estimated 46 million coffee trees with nearly 15% considered to be unproductive. The remaining 39 million yielding trees include a considerable number that are more than 30 years old. Several farms throughout the country have trees that are approximately 100 years old (USAID 2004).
Incomparable Taste: With other coffee origins, such as Colombian or El Salvador, sometimes it is difficult to tell them apart, as they have much in common. For Yemeni coffee this doesn’t easily happen with its unique notes and flavours.
The original Sufi Monk lived in the 1400’s, in the Port of Mokha, Yemen. Today his spirit lives on, in the active Yemeni coffee terraces, whose beans reach the cups of coffee lovers around the world.
We invite you to have the Sufi Monks experience in your everyday cup of coffee.
We hope you love this coffee as much as we do. And through the rich history and exciting resurgence of Yemeni coffee, we hope you share it with your loved ones as did the Sufi Monk after he brewed his first cup of coffee.
Amazing taste, I purchased it as a gift for my husband and he loved it. We came back for more
Tasty and Unique!
easily one of the best coffees in the world. I'm a coffee expert and had my specialty coffee roasting business for years and I say this with confidence.
Sweet cup with lovely hints of fruity notes but not as citrusy or acidic. Has a medium to heavy body and pleasant aftertaste. Balanced in all aspects.
Yemen is the cradle of coffee.When you drink Mokha, you are having this connection with the spectacular history and a culture to be proud of.
I had an amazing experience with the Yemeni Mokha beans! It was my first time trying Yemeni coffee and I truly loved it.
I do v60 pour over at home and I only drink black coffee, so the quality of the beans is something extremely important for me and Sufi Monks has exceeded that by far! I can recommend this 100%
so I'm very picky when I order my coffee. It has to be from a certain provider and has to be roasted properly and it's very hard for me to venture out side of that but I've always wanted to taste so yemani coffee and the provider usually get my coffee from doesn't provide that at the moment. so when Sufi monks came on my feed I thought why not give it a go, why not experiment, the naturally processed coffee of Yemen and the roasting that sufi monks have done to it complement each other quite well. the taste grew on me as I'm more of a light roast fan but the combination that they found was chocolatey, slightly bitter but also that bitterness made me want more so give Sufi monk's a shot they are well worth it
This Yemeni coffee took me thousands of miles to that great land and great people.
May God bless them and give them best life to astonish the world with more and more.
Yemeni coffee is one of the rarest in the market.
Sufimonks delivered exactly what I expected from Yemeni coffee.
High sweetness, medium acidity with full-bodied lingering aftertaste of molasses, dates, and dried tangerine.
This is the best coffee of my life to date. I have a professional machine and only use quality fresh roasted whole bean coffee and I’ve never had a cup with the complexity, flavour profile and intensity as this. Bravo!
Will not regret it. It’s now my go to gift for coffee lover friends.
I ordered the espresso beans and it was just amazing. The crema is so fluffy and tasty ❤️ One of the best coffee beans.
Absolutely love it! Warm or cold
Where I grew up in Holland we had 'sweet wood', pieces of a liquorice kind of tasting wood that you could buy at a candy store and chew and suck on. It was actual wood. This tea/coffee reminds me of that taste which is very nice. I can't wait to get some anais pods and put them in as well as a stick ot cinnamon which I'm already doing. Thank you for this tea and also thank you for the personal packaging and quick responses to emails. Very very nice!! Cheers Patrick
I use the recipe online and let it settle in my cup for 10 min, and the result was fantastic! Smooth and sweet taste. Will order again for sure.
