Situated at 2300 meters above sea level, Mohammed Ali Abdo Al Mazna’ae’s farm is not only the highest in the village of Al-Mazana’ah, Sana’a Governorate, but also the highest of any lot in this year’s Sheba Coffee Auction. Combing this magical and exotic environment with Mohamed’s dedication has contributed to one of this year’s top lots.
Aged 55, Mohammed manages the farm with the help of his three sons. Mohammed has been described as ‘obsessed’ with his coffee trees, taking great care and attention to manage them efficiently. Only small amounts of organic fertilisers are used to supplement the fine yet delicate mountain terrace soils.
