Disclosure: Pull & Pour received coffee samples for this post, however, as always, all opinions are 100% my own.

Yemeni coffee, though more difficult to find, is some of the most unique and exciting coffee I’ve ever tasted. For this reason, I was incredibly excited to get to try a variety of Mokha Bunn’s single-farm Yemeni coffee. Mokha Bunn is one of the only roasters sourcing micro-lot, single-farm coffees from Yemen, like this Gurmah. It is amazing the difference coffees from different regions within the same country can have. Each one was delicious and unique, but it was this Gurmah that really stood out to me.

The fragrance began with creamy sweet blueberry notes and continued with berry-forward notes in the aroma. The flavor was incredibly complex and I tasted notes of blueberry, maple and vanilla. It was rich with subtle floral notes and a medium to full body. The mouthfeel was decadent and robust with a silky profile. The sweetness was rich and contained a nice mix of chocolate and fruit. The finish featured some nice lemon citrus and was incredibly smooth. As with almost every Yemeni coffee I’ve tried, this coffee was incredibly complex. I loved exploring the deep flavor profile, especially as it evolved through every sip, every cup and the entire bag. As the coffee aged, it continued to develop new and different flavor attributes that were fun to explore. The coffee two weeks off roast was quite different than the coffee six weeks off roast, but each were incredibly delicious.

The Bottom Line

This Gurmah was incredibly fun to explore. Mokha Bunn did a great job exposing the complexity of the coffee while still making it approachable and something that would appeal to a broad swath of coffee lovers.
