Leather, Pipe Tobacco, Dates, Zinfandel

Yemeni coffees are the single malts of the coffee universe, with a reputation for excellence that traces back to the birth of the trade. Their flavors resist characterization; their aromatics are more saturated than an iPhone camera filter. A good Yemeni coffee curls its drinker like Rodin's Thinker. You don't just sip it, you consider it. 

This dry (natural) process from Sa'adah makes for a sweet, rustic cup. It's packed with untamed appeal and characteristic exotic tones. The profile opens with a hit of Ovaltine cocoa. Next comes some sweet sesame candy—think Halvah. As the cup cools, more nuanced notes emerge: tobacco, spice, merlot complexity. It's one of those head-spinning brews that's unique to Yemen and its heirloom trees. Have it for a special occasion, or no occasion at all.
