About Us

The attractions of ceramics lie partly in its contradictions. It is both difficult and easy, with an element beyond our control. It is both extremely fragile and durable. Like 'Sumi' ink painting, it does not lend itself to erasures and indecision.

Ethically and Sustainably Produced  Yemeni Coffee

A Tribute to Home

"As a Yemeni living abroad, I struggled to find Yemeni specialty coffee being served anywhere. As I asked baristas and roasters about Yemeni coffee and Yemen’s role in popularizing the world’s favorite past time, I found that many were unaware of coffee’s Yemeni roots. Those who were aware had never had the opportunity to taste the centuries worth of tradition that makes Yemeni coffee so distinct. As a result, I began my quest to help build the bridge to the land of mokha. Today I am proud to be a specialty coffee roaster, playing my part in representing and sharing a piece of both my and the world’s coffee heritage: Yemeni coffee."
- Haitham Al-Shoriy, Founder & Head Roaster

"I have a deep appreciation for coffee and an even stronger love for Yemen. I want to share one of Yemen's greatest treasures with the world while affecting positive change within our impoverished country. I am lucky enough to be able to do what I love for the people and country that I love and even luckier to do it with an amazing group of people!"

"How beautiful it is that coffee has brought people from all places and backgrounds together for centuries. As the world is sustained through connections, I hope that my role at Tribes of Mokha brings people to have a deeper understanding and appreciation for each other - all over a cup of Yemeni coffee, of course."

"The story of Yemen and its coffee is a powerful one and I'm grateful to be able to share the story of Yemeni coffee at home (CZ) and internationally. I fell in love with Yemeni food, especially the Fahsa! I can't wait to visit the Happy Yemen!"

From Farm to Cup

We work diligently to source single origin Yemeni coffee by partnering exclusively with select coffee producers that prioritise maintaining a close relationship with farmers to ensure traceability from farm to cup. Together with our coffee producers, we diligently work on ensuring that our coffee is not only quality but more importantly, impactful economically and socially. Our coffee is grown, produced and roasted by Yemeni hands.

A Sustainable Future

As the Yemeni coffee industry faces an uphill battle against qat, a cash crop and stimulant drug that makes up more than 40% of Yemen’s agricultural land, we aim to achieve sustainability by ensuring our coffee farmers’ fair gain. We hope that earning fairly will encourage farmers to turn away from producing qat while allowing them to continue farming coffee despite the small 500g-50kg harvests.

Committed to a
sustainable future

The Yemeni coffee industry faces an uphill battle against qat, a cash crop and stimulant drug that makes up 40% of Yemen’s agricultural land and consumes roughly 80% of the country’s water. We aim to achieve sustainability by ensuring our coffee farmers’ fair gain. Our hope is that earning fairly will encourage farmers to turn away from producing qat while allowing them to continue farming coffee despite the small harvests of 500g to 50kg. We are committed to a sustainable future for the coffee farmers, the future generations of farmers and all those involved in the value chain.

Ethically Sourced Coffee

We and our producers are committed to achieving the best conditions for Yemeni farmers. Through our commitment to the Qima Foundation, we contribute to providing access to education and medical care for families living on the farms and creating a safe working and living environment. We donate 5% of each purchase to the Qima Foundation.
