Maskal Fine Coffee
|Harazi growing region, north-central Yemen.
Notes of fermented fruit (berry?), chocolate and aromatic wood carry from a rich, sweet-toned aroma into the cup, where they turn muted and rather heavy, though they preserve their concentrated fruit and a halo of chocolaty sweetness. Chocolate notes sustain in a long, relatively astringent finish.
A dry-processed or "natural" coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or "washed" coffees. Harazi is a celebrated coffee growing region in north-central Yemen, west of the capital of Sana'a. Although Ethiopia is the botanical home of Coffea arabica, Yemen introduced the beverage to the rest of the world in the 16th and 17th centuries, and Yemeni coffee is still grown from ancient cultivars and sun-dried, usually on the roofs of stone houses. This particular Yemen is the result of a private partnership aimed at improving the quality of this legendary coffee. Based in Germany, Maskal Fine Coffee Company is a small roaster focused on high quality coffee. At this time, Maskal distributes its coffee exclusively within Germany. Visit
