Traceability Information

Although Naji Ahmed Ahsan Al-Salami grows a wide variety of vegetables and legumes across his 5 farms, coffee cultivation is where Naji focuses most of his time.

Located in the village of Bait Hujairah, Al Hayma region, Naji first learned cultivation techniques as a child from his late father, Ahmed Ahsan. Ahmed is well remembered as a veteran coffee producer in the region, with many of his famed techniques still employed by Naji today. Now aged 57, Naji is passing these traditions to his six sons, Bashar, Ahmad, Ghamdan, Muhammad, Qaid and Uday, all of whom work on their fathers’ farms.
