Qima Coffee

Yemeni Specialty Coffee

Qima works directly with Yemeni growers and works directly with smallholder farmers across central and northern Yemen, creating equitable trade in cultivating and hand harvesting specialty coffee sourced from some of Yemen’s highest altitudes. Founded in 2016 by Faris Sheibani, Qima Coffee’s core purpose is to rebuild Yemen’s specialty coffee industry. Qima has pledged to donate 10% of its annual profits to education and agricultural projects through their Qima Foundation. Founder and CEO, Faris Sheibani states, “Qima Coffee’s partnership with ACE marks a momentous milestone in Yemen’s specialty coffee industry. Sourcing coffees from thousands of smallholder farmers across the country, including many previously untouched regions, we are excited to offer the widest and finest range of coffees ever to have left Yemen’s shores. The Yemen Coffee Revolution is well and truly here. We invite you to be a part of that revolution.” This auction is open to non-members and members.
