Ibrahim Mahmood Wahab is a 35 years-old small-holder, father of two kids. He comes from Al Barak, located in the western area of Haraz region. Water irrigation is Ibrahim’s biggest challenge in coffee farming. This particularly concerns the rainwater collection which is kept in barrels to be used in times of need. The lack of paved roads and the mountain slopes contribute to make any travel as well as the farming practices even more challenging. Compared to other Arabic plants – which can produce up to 1.5 kg of cherries each – a single plant from Yemen, grown to her full potential, can yield a maximum of 150g of cherries. There are extreme climate conditions: however, despite the desert land, the west-to-east wind direction causes a moist airflow counteracting the desert dry air. This allows to keep fresh trees and low ground temperatures. Ibrahim owns around 8.000 square metres of land, growing qat, lentils, corn, wheat, and coffee. Aliena Coffee Roaster proudly established a long-term partnership by sourcing the entire yearly harvest. In the cup, you will experience notes of raspberry, mango, blackcurrant, and melange.
