Featured Roast: Yemen Mokha Mattari

For this week’s featured roast I had planned another coffee, but I had some requests for this “pure origin” coffee from Bani Mattar in Yemen. The Mokha Mattari.

One of the oldest cultivated coffees, Mokha* Mattari is still grown as it has been for centuries, without pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers, at altitudes of over 4000 metres. According to Sweet Maria’s description the Mattari coffees were kept separate from other coffees of the region.

A truly unique tasting coffee with a very long history. Having roasted it this morning I wouldn’t expect its full flavour to come out until at least tomorrow or even a day or two longer. So far my preferred brew for this coffee is as a single origin espresso.

*The designation “Mokha” or “Mocha” has nothing to do with chocolate, rather the port of Al-Mokha in Yemen through which the coffees historically passed as they left Yemen.
