“Al-Mokha” is a small port city on the Red Sea coast of Yemen. From the 15th century until the early 18th century, it was the only marketplace to export coffee worldwide.
“Bunn” in Arabic means the coffee cherry, coffee beans, or ground coffee. It was the first name by which coffee was known in the Arab culture for more than 800 years.
From farm to cup, we take care of every detail in the process. Due to the ancient varieties, the unique geographical conditions in Yemen, the dry climate, the elevation where coffee is grown, and the current situation, all of our coffees require special and professional treatment to deliver the farm’s quality. In Yemen, we supervise the harvest, control the drying process, hulling, hand sorting, packing, and exportation procedures. Once in Canada, we start profiling and roasting to get the most from our coffees.
Mokha Bunn is combining the tradition of Yemeni coffee culture with the innovation of specialty coffee.
