イエメンコーヒーの歴史

MOCHA PORT :
The port of Mocha faces the Red Sea, which is adjacent to the city of Mocha, Yemen. Mocha Port was a major exporting port for coffee called Arabica from the 15th to 18th centuries. Around that time, coffee production peaked and was exported to wealthy countries around the world. However, from the beginning of the 15th century, an awakening plant called Qat became popular in Yemen, and since then it has become one of the major domestic products.


WHAT IS QAT?
Qat is a green plant that has been popular in Yemen since the 15th century and can cause excitement, loss of appetite, and time loss when chewed for several hours.


COFFEE AND QAT RELATION:
Coffee and Qat problems have arisen since the Qat became popular in Yemen. Since Qat is a product that is sold extensively in the country, the income of Qat received by farmers is higher than that of coffee. Most farmers have replanted coffee trees into Qat trees. Currently in Yemen, there are seven Qat farms for each coffee farm. This situation has created various social problems such as water shortages, soil destruction, and health problems. As a company, we want to solve these problems and reduce the number of Qat trees to provide better livelihoods for farmers and make a significant contribution to the Yemeni economy.
WHY TO USE YEMEN COFFEE?
Yemeni coffee is one of the leading coffees in countries such as the United States, which is ranked as Luxurious Coffee. In Japan, Yemen coffee history have continued for more than 50 years, and people are familiar with it. At the same time, many Japanese and Asian coffee shop owners say that the distinctive acidity and sweetness of Yemeni coffee fits the Asian taste. Therefore, I think it is time for you too to try Yemen High quality coffee.
Yemeni coffee prices have risen in the last few years due to civil war and interstate wars in the last few years. As a result, Yemeni coffee has to overcome many difficulties before it reaches the international market. For example, problems such as power shortages and inadequate road maintenance are likely to increase coffee production and transportation costs. In addition, it is important to trade at a fair price to farmers in order to maintain the production of high quality coffee and not give them other options like Qat. We believe that our company can help with that, hopefully increasing coffee exports, calming coffee prices and delivering more affordable and tasty coffee.
