001B - Al-lahaba Natural

Where our Limited Rare journey began, with the Qima project and this incredible Udaini varietal natural nanolot.

Yemen is an an intriguing speciality coffee origin. The country is in essence, the original speciality coffee origin, as it was the sole coffee exporter up until the early 1700s.

Achieving near-legendary status amongst the coffee community, there has long been word of how exquisite coffee from Yemen can taste. However, the country has seen many troubled times and farmers lacked the infrastructure to focus on small, speciality lots in the hope of exporting them.

Faris, the founder of Qima, was born in Bolton, UK to family of Yemeni heritage. Faris knew that he could make a positive impact on his family’s home and thought oil would be the country’s saviour, but Yemen was soon torn apart by civil war and Faris’ oil deals collapsed.

He then turned to coffee, harnessing the origin’s centuries-old legacy and implementing modern speciality growing techniques in Yemen’s best producing areas.

The Qima project builds and operates infrastructure, support and processes that focus on achieving the highest cup quality — splitting out the nano and microlots to showcase the incredible flavours this origin is capable of. All this, while delivering a premium price to the coffee farmers.

We’re proud to showcase this nanolot as our first Limited Release Rare. A naturally-processed, native Udaini varietal, grown by Hussain Al Lahaba. This is a truly remarkable coffee with sweet and complex notes of rose, apricot, dried mango and cocoa.
