March 3rd is the National Day for Planting Coffee in Yemen and every year people across Yemen replant coffee for the upcoming harvest. This year The Mokha Institute and its partners in Yemen are expanding that to encourage Yemeni farmers to grow their coffee groves. Not only planting for next year but to fill the demand in years to come and promote the enjoyment of Yemeni coffee across the country and throughout the world.
A 3 day festival from March 3-6, 2022 will celebrate the National Day for Planting Coffee through an exhibition and tasting of Yemeni coffee and culture. The Yemeni Coffee Planting Festival will house an exhibition and marketplace for local coffee vendors to share their coffee products with the community, an art gallery featuring works of local artisans and their coffee related art, a series of coffee tastings, as well as workshops in agricultural best practices, business planning, accessing international markets, and the importance of the cultural and historical legacy of coffee in Yemen.
