Yemeni Green Coffee

Yemeni Green Coffee

We know that Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee as a plant, but if you want to talk about the first intensification of commercial cultivation and exportation of coffee, we are talking about Yemen. The birthplace of coffee is Ethiopia, and the birthplace of the coffee industry is almost certainly Yemen. No place on earth has been cultivating coffee for international trade at scale as long as Yemen. For hundreds of years Yemen maintained a monopoly on growing and exporting green coffee. While coffee drinking expanded across the globe, coffee growing did not until the 17th century, and that only happened with assistance from a generation of determined smugglers and adventurers.
