Historically an important and integral part of the history of coffee, Yemen is the origin of the term ‘Coffea Arabica’, which takes its name from Qahwa Arabiyah (Arabic Coffee). Indeed, the word ‘Mocha’ is a derivative of the name of Yemen’s Al-Makha port, through which coffee was exported to the rest of the world. Sea Island's Mocha coffee is produced in the rugged Haraz Mountain in the northwest Highlands of Yemen. Centuries-old stone steps are carved into the valleys where, at elevations of up to 3,000 meters above sea level, coffee thrives in rich volcanic soil. Produced by 500 farming families, the farms are small average just one acre each. Haraz Mocha is a superb coffee with a full body, overtones of raisins, a fruity acidity, and a smooth chocolate finish.
