Yemen Mocca - Hawari

Micro-Lot, Natural/Dry Processed

Rare, Unique, Blueberry!

This is one of the most remarkable and high-quality lots of Yemen coffee I have come across in a very, very long time.
Simply put, it is stunning!

This is a micro-lot supply that comes from a group of 131 coffee producers from Al Qafr, Ibb.
It is fully natural (which imparts the fantastic fruit tones), and sun-dried on roof tops.

General Flavor Observations
Yemen Mocca - Hawari

Like a fond memory from the past, this Yemen Hawari is bursting with blueberry, black cherry, fig, and date.

Lusciously exotic spices of cinnamon and cardamom fill the air with anticipation that is realized in the cup.
The mouth-feel is round and smooth, surrounded by warm notes of milk chocolate, and a superb, classic finish.

Depending on the roast level chosen, you will find a range of qualities that can include chocolate, caramel, figs, Turkish apricots, red berries, and most prominently, blueberries.

If you are a fan of Yemen coffee, this exquisite lot will surpass your expectations.

Roast Level Profile Notes
Yemen Mocca - Hawari

We love the rich, complexity of this Yemen Hawari, and each roast level will have something wonderful to offer.
In the end, I chose Full City because I felt it centered all the best attributes.
Each roast level will offer you something wonderful and different, so don't hesitate to experiment.

*** Please note that a lighter roasted Yemen coffee may display an uneven bean surface that can appear mottled or irregular.
This is perfectly normal and is a result from the processing and drying methods. ***

We are always happy to accommodate any roast level you prefer.
The notes below illustrate how changing the roast will alter the profile:

City Roast (light roast)

If you are familiar with coffees from Yemen and seek to maximize the full range of complexity the coffee can offer, then this is the right roast to choose. You will find a complex mix of cocoa, caramel, figs, dates, and blueberry.
Our Yemen Mocca Hawari is absolutely wonderful in this light roast.

Full City Roast (medium roast) - Preferred

Prominent notes of blueberry, chocolate, fig, and red berries.
The body is creamy and rich, perfectly balanced between chocolate and fruit.
The finish is smooth with lingering spice, a wonderful complexity, and blueberry.

Full City (+) Roast

This roast level will focus the deeper fruit tones and chocolate.
The mouth-feel will be more syrupy; the body, more full and deep.
The finish will be smooth, highlighting the wonderful fig and blueberry overtones.

Vienna Roast

This roast has that solid dark roast quality, yet remains very smooth.
The blueberry fruit tones remain but are a bit more muted.
The body will appear heavier with abundant, spicy and dark chocolate notes. The finish is long with peaks of fig and red berry.

French Roast

This roast is pushing the value point as it will nearly eclipse the characteristics of this fine Yemen Mocca Hawari.
In all honesty, we can't recommend a French roast.

Additional Information
Yemen Mocca - Hawari

The coffee is grown and processed in much the same way as it has been dating back to the 15th century, such as the drying coffee naturally in the cherry, on the rooftops of houses that are perched on the edges of steep mountain ridges.
This time honored process contributes greatly to what makes Yemeni coffee so wonderfully complex and intriguing.

The coffee is naturally processed (dried with the fruit still attached to the beans), and milling is done conventionally by millstone or other "primitive" methods (accounting for the rough and irregular beans.)

It is fantastic!
Joe- Received my order of Yemen yesterday (and had to immediately brew a pot).
It is fantastic!

Thanks so much! I will need to try the City roast at some point.

Thanks and have a great weekend!

Superb coffee & service
YM has a delicious, rich flavor that (IMHO) is enhanced by a darker roast, giving it more punch, yet still remaining smooth with its distinctive chocolate-y aftertaste. I purchased it locally for years as an Italian roast, but the shop's owner (a superb roaster) passed away suddenly. His shop changed hands and the new owners didn't have his skill at roasting or customer service integrity, something I became aware of when my normal 5lb purchase came out burnt. It was very much a too bad, so sad you spent $100+ and don't like the way your coffee tastes. And guess what? That was the last of it we won't be carrying it any more. So I'm happy to have found Storehouse Coffee. They genuinely care about flavor and customer satisfaction. I purchased several roast levels initially & was touched by the extra darker samples included in the package and the offer to roast at that level if I preferred it, despite the option not being listed on the web page. No worries though. Vienna corresponds to the Italian roast I used to purchase and I now have that smooth, rich, chocolate-y with punch delicious cup of coffee again. And barring the PO having issues, the coffee arrives within a few days of ordering. Woot! Buy with confidence, you won't be disappointed.

One of the very best versions of the sanani/matari regional coffees I've experienced. A nice feature of this company is that they offer you their expert opinion on what is the best type of roast for each coffee, but they still give the buyer the option of what roast level they would prefer. A very nice feature. Finally, the company's packaging and shipping process is very efficient. 5 stars across the board!
