Yemen – Cupping Yemeni Coffee with Mohamed

Returning to Sana’a we evaluated the samples we picked up traveling to the various coffee growing regions.

We returned to Sana’a to do some coffee cupper training. We had picked up samples on the trip to evaluate, but we also wanted to share our method of quality evaluation, which was not widely used in the country.

Cupping wasn’t the way coffee was traded or valued – it was exclusively by looking at the physical aspects of the coffee: green coffee<coffee grading of sorts.

We also looked forward to a nighttime stroll around the old city. Basically we needed to buy tchotchkes and such.
