Yemen Mokha MatariMy Friend's Coffee
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 Matari makes for a wild, rustic cup. It's packed with untamed appeal, but retains a sweetness that you don't often find in earthy cups. The profile opens with a hit of leather. Next comes some sweet tobacco, rich and dominant. As the cup cools, more nuanced notes emerge: sugary dates mugging alongside a spicy punch of Zinfandel. 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.
