Our

Mission, Path and Passion.

The Mokha Institute was co-founded by, Mokhtar Alkhanshali, an American of Yemeni descent. Mokhtar spent years traveling across Yemen surveying coffee growing areas. Throughout his travels he heard stories of his ancestors rich coffee history, learned about coffee the many amazing coffee varietals, measured rainfall, slept on mountains, and observed farming practices. There in the highlands of Yemen his vision developed: enable coffee stakeholders in Yemen to attain greater economic stability and prosperity by elevating the quality of the coffee beans produced in Yemen. He soon realized that as an individual, his capacity to make and impact was limited.
