Ismaeli Anaerobic Yemen Specialty-Coffee Mokha Bunn Canada Ismaili Natural

This coffee is the first anaerobic natural process that comes out of Bani Ismail region in the governorate of Sana’a, Yemen. It’s uncommon to get a different process rather than the traditional natural process –sun dried- in Yemen and specially in Bani Ismail. We have teamed up with our friend Tayb Qaid who was so excited to experiment modern coffee processes for the first time in the region. We have been working closely with him, supervising and evaluating the process during 3 seasons, and after many trials in small batches (some were good and other not that good), we have proudly reached to a great result and decided to produce more of it and share this amazing lot with our friends.

The anaerobic natural process is done by fermenting the whole coffee fruit (cherries) in artisanal fermentation tanks after the oxygen is removed when the coffee is added at the beginning of the process. There are valves on the tanks that keep them free from oxygen seeping in during the process while also allowing CO2 to be released as it builds up during fermentation. Time and temperate are two main factors to control in this process that can totally change the final results. With this lot, the cherries were fermented for 50 hours before they were dried under the sun on raised beds for 19 days. As a result, this coffee is very sweet, fruity and clean with nice lactic acidity and silky body.

    I’ve been brewing this coffee for a couple of weeks now. I wasn’t surprised by the taste in the first 2 weeks of the roast when it was fresh, but I’ve completely changed my opinion as it had aged. It’s very smooth and fruity with just the exact amount of acidity that I like in my coffee. I’ll order more now!

    The best Yemeni coffee I’ve ever had so far. Highly recommended

  3. Rowena Carey (verified owner)

    Love the flavour of this Ismaeli and so I have bought some more of Mokha Bunn coffee beans to try! I look forward to having my coffee each day and would buy this one again!

  4. Martin T (verified owner)

    Amazing coffee. It has the best aroma I’ve ever experienced in specialty coffee. I’ve tried it black and with almond milk and it was so good!

    High quality coffee.

  6. Tristan Houben (verified owner)

    Great coffee. I loved it so much as pour over and cezve. 100% recommended

  7. Ahmad Khatib (verified owner)

    This is a great, well-balanced coffee, it has some really nice acidity that pairs well with the smooth chocolate finish. When brewed on a lighter ratio closer to 60g/Liter, it brings out that typical Yemeni flavor profile of nuts/chocolate and deep fruit and dates. It reminds me a little of Matari. I got the best results when brewing with a V60, on a slightly finer grind so that there are some patches of fines on the filter walls but a uniform sandy bed.
