    Al-Wadi Village Lot Box

    $32.00

      This is 4oz Individual box of roasted coffee from our village in Al-Wadi region with flavor notes of complex cacao, peach, and honeysuckle

      Nicknamed "The land of the tribes", Al-Wadi is one of the most difficult places to source coffee. Their villages are at the tops of mountains, where they have carved out beautiful terraces. Much of their coffee is grown under shade, giving their coffees delicate fruit notes and juicier body. The people of Al-Wadi have a lifestyle that has been uninterrupted for centuries. Their art of coffee cultivation has been perfected for generations, making it an experience unlike anything you've ever tasted.

      We roast bi-monthly, Thursday roasting and Thursday/Friday fulfillment. Because our coffees are grown at such high elevations, we recommend giving them a few days to open up after the roast date before you enjoy them. The ideal is 7-20 days off of roast. Good for up to 35 days after roast date.

      *Due to Covid-19 and the shelter-in-place order we are temporarily shipping out on Wednesdays only. For international orders: we are not liable for customs fees. Please see shipping policy for more details.

      Great and super unique coffee. I've drank a lot of coffee in my years as a barista and I've definitely never tasted a natural as chocolatey and floral as this one. Sure, it's pricey but that is because farmers are paid right and exporting from Yemen is extremely difficult. Thanks so much for the wonderful coffee.

      Not worth the price

      Sorry. It was ok coffee but I expected so much for the money I spent. My onyx and Stumptown every bit as good and actually much better. I do wish you luck though and appreciate the project.

      The coffee arrived beautifully packed. As it's waiting to be given as a present for someone special I haven't yet tried the beans.

      However I can confirm it is the most expensive coffee I have ever bought; 1. cost of the beans on the website + 2. postage to the UK (so now double the original price) + 3. British import tax (are they taking the piss??? so triple now triple thr original price). Sure hoping it's as good as everyone seems to think it is ... God bless you Yemen.
