Coffee Quality Lab

National Yemen Coffee Auction

The Mokha Institute, in collaboration with the Unity of Coffee department of Yemen’s Ministry of Agriculture, is organizing an inaugural National Yemen Coffee Auction to establish a collective voice around Yemen’s world renowned coffee. Coffee lots will go through qualification rounds to lead to a representative samples of specialty lots which will be inspected and cupped in a coffee laboratory in Yemen’s capital Sana’a. The selected lots will then undergo further testing and tasting internationally. Comprehensive data will be collected about the geographic origin of the coffees, the history of the coffee producers and their communities, the varieties and applied processing protocols and other relevant quality data.

The auction event will be held through an internet based platform which will list the coffee lots for sale and where buyers from around the world can submit their bids.
