Vail Mountain Coffee & Tea Co is over the moon excited to announce the newest addition to our Reserve Lot Coffee, Yemen Mocca Kholani Ecotact. We wanted to bring in something truly exotic for this holiday season and the Yemen Mocca has knocked our socks off here at the Roastery! Deep red fruity flavors, herbaceous aromas, with a smooth, satisfying finish, this selection is a perfect selection for the holiday season.
"Kholani" or "Khulani" is a term of terroir distinction, similar to "Kona", that refers to high quality heirloom coffee varieties produced in the unique climate and soil of Yemen's northern ranges. Kholani coffee is widely regarded in Yemen as one of its best and most historic. All Kholani coffee is processed as a natural; hand picked, sorted for consistency, and dried in a single layer in full sun on raised beds or rooftops. Yemen is the oldest territory on Earth to cultivate coffee. Its seed stock, originally transported from wild arabica landraces in Ethiopia, was used to create the world's first ever coffee farms where coffee would be grown commercially for trade across the Arabian peninsula and eventually mainland Europe.
