The Best of Yemeni Coffee
“This is about unifying a divided country, giving hope to the youth, and showing the world Yemen can produce beautiful coffee.”
— Mokhtar Alkhanshali,
President and Founder of The Mokha Institute
Thank you Al Qalam NGO
for you unwavering support for Yemen and it’s people.
The auction initiative is being developed on the basis of The Mokha Institute’s larger strategy for the advancement of Yemen’s specialty coffee industry. Essential to this effort is establishing Yemen’s first coffee lab which is projected. We were proud to officially open the NYCA Coffee Lab in March of 2022.
“Establishing Yemen’s first internationally certified coffee lab will lay the foundation for our long term mission to educate and train a new generation of coffee professionals in Yemen.”
Willem Boot, co-founder of The Mokha Institute
The National Yemen Coffee Auction is a collaboration between the Union of Yemeni Coffee Farmer cooperatives, Yemen’s Unity of Coffee Organization, Yemeni Coffee Exporters Association and The Mokha Institute. Collectively these organizations represent thousands of farmers and exporters from across the country. The National Yemen Coffee Auction represents the aspirations and has the unanimous support of Yemen’s coffee community.
“We believe the National Yemen Coffee Auction will be an incredible bridge for Yemeni coffee to the world,” — Mohamed Al-Qassemi, head of Yemen’s Unity of Coffee Organization.
