Well known for being one of the more elderly members of his village, Abdullah Rashed Mohammed Al-Jaberi has been farming coffee for close to a decade. Today, following years of hard work, Abdullah can produce some of the highest scoring coffees Yemen has to offer.
For more than 20 years, Abdullah had worked as a civil servant in the capital city of Sana’a. This was until the revolution in late 2011. By late 2012, Abdullah was forced to leave his career; after his salary was suspended. This left Abdullah with no other choice but to return to his village to escape the economic instability.
Abdullah is fortunate to be from the highly sort after coffee producing village of Al-Mahjar, Al Hayma, Sana’a governorate. After returning to his family village, Abdullah began to re-sow his 24 libina coffee farm as well as a selection of crops reserved for sustenance. Using techniques taught by his now deceased father and with help from relatives, over time Abdullah has improved processes and perfected his craft, now well regarded for his production of complex coffees.
