About the farmer:
Ghalib AlHamasi is a 49 years old gentleman and is the sixth generation in his family who works with coffee. He comes from an hardworking family that works in several industries besides coffee cultivation. Mr.Ghalib has chosen to dedicate his life to coffee not only because of how much he loves it but also because he faithfully believes that it is more sustainable than any other industry and can change people’s lives in his region and in Yemen in general.
One of his hobbies is to experiment with coffee processing at his farm by applying the techniques he had learned from his great grandparents that have been used for more than 600 years and combine them with the innovation of specialty coffee. As a result, the coffee he produces is a true sensory adventure.
Haraz is a mountainous region of Yemen between the cities of Sana’a and Al-Hudaydah. It is considered within the range of Sarawat. In the 11th century, it was the fortress of the Sulayhid Dynasty, many of the buildings still survive today. It includes Jabal An-Nabi Shu’ayb, the highest mountain in Yemen and the Arabian Peninsula. Due to its location between the coastal plain of Tihamah and Sanaa, this mountainous area has always been strategically important. A stopping point for the caravan during the Himyarite Kingdom, the Haraz was later the stronghold of the Sulayhid dynasty, which established itself in Yemen in 1037.
In general, Yemeni coffees are best consumed after 12-18 days from the roasting date and up to 12-16 weeks because of the degassing process. Notes will vary depending on the conserving way and time, but always a delicious cup of coffee.
