Carbon negative coffee



In the story of coffee, Yemen is one of the most important places. It was in the mountains of Yemen that we believe coffee was first cultivated, and it was in its villages and cities that the first roasting and brewing of coffee most likely happened. With such a long heritage, it’s no surprise that coffee grown in Yemen is unlike any found elsewhere in the world. These unique coffees are called Yemenia, and – because Yemen’s climate conditions are similar to what is projected to become the new normal throughout many coffee origins as the climate emergency worsens – they offer us a chance to find the cultivars of the future.

Although the coffee in Yemen is exceptional, development of the country’s coffee farming community is incredibly difficult because of the civil war between the Saudi Arabia-backed national government and rebel forces. The civil war has seen many tragedies, including reports from Amnesty International that British-made and supplied cluster bombs have been used on civilians. In this climate, coffee is one of the few products that is exported, and so offers a lifeline to producers there as they attempt to live through an extremely violent period.

We don’t label our coffee as espresso or filter. Instead, for each coffee we create a unique roasting profile, designed to bring out the best flavours from its origin, farm and milling method. That’s why, instead, we label our coffee based on the experience it brings to the cup.
