Considered to be one of the original coffees and is the variety from which all Arabicas eminate. This coffee unites Strength, Aroma and Fragrance with a touch of wildness.
(“The mother of all coffees”, probably all arabica coffees in the world derive from Yemen coffee dates back to the 6th century.)
Grown on high terraces up to 3.000 metres Matari grows in the province of Bany Matar. The main arabica varieties grown are Bourbon and Typica having a locally produced variation called Matari. The trees are shaded by banana trees and fertilised by ash and organic matter. The picking season is October to December. A dry processed coffee. The process of hulling with millstones tends to crush and break the beans. The bean is small and round and has been organically grown for 200 years. It is shipped through the port of Mocha (Moka) which gives the name to other coffees from this area, usually Ethiopian coffee. The flavour is rich with an exceptional mild, fragrant taste whilst the aroma is very strong.. Locally it is drunk with cinnamon or ginger previously called Kawa…now called Kishr, said to be once appreciated in the ‘Sultan Style’ in the Turkish harems.
We loved drinking the fairtrade coffee from Papua New Guinea and also the Yemen Matari coffee. We were raising money for MSF (Doctors without Borders) and I chose these to reflect the diverse range of countries they work in. I spent approx £10 on the coffee for the money and we raised nearly £200 so well worth the luxury touch!
Have used this great company on several occasions but this time they surpassed them selves - ordered one day received the next!!
Over the last half dozen years I've obtained coffee beans from a number of subscription based websites. And to be honest I've been generally happy.
Last month a fellow coffee fan recommended The love of coffee, and I'm so glad they did. Great choice, great coffee, great service. I'll be back and have already recommended The love of coffee to others.
The coffee beans were medium or potentially lightly roasted, I feel this coffee would have tasted much better were it darkly roasted.
Discovered 'The Love of Coffee' when I was trying to source some unusual types and I was delighted to find the range on offer here. I was delighted to receive my four trial packs in double quick time and will be back for more!
Great coffee. Great service. 100%.
Excellent and very informative website. Delivery well packaged and quick.
Yemeni Matari softer tasting and should improve with further experimentation regarding ratios.
Very nice, fresh, well packaged. Good service from the company: will use again.
