An article from yesterday’s Yemen Observer discusses the origins, characteristics, growing regions, and the naming ‘accident’ of Yemeni Mokha coffee: Mocha coffee: from ancient memories to global brand marketed by Al-Kbous as one of the oldest and most famous coffees of all time. Yemen Mokha is, of course, half of the infamous Moka Java blend. But it is also considered something of the ‘mother’ of Arabica coffee, and it’s one of my favorite origin beans.
