GEOGRAPHY & CLIMATE:
Yemen is located in southern Arabia between Saudi Arabia and Oman. The desert climate is modified by altitude, which affects temperature by as much as 54 degrees F. Rainfall increases in northwest and central Yemen. The population is 14 million.
Coffee was introduced from Ethiopia perhaps in the 6th century. Yemen was known as Arabia at that time and it is from this that the coffee gained its botanical name. Today, the coffee is still grown organically on the western mountain ranges from Razih, near the town of Sa'dah in the North to the south of Ta'izz. The farmers nurture their coffee shrubs, planted in terraced fields, as their forefathers did before them.
