Mokhtar Alkhanshali—founder of Port of Mokha and the subject of Dave Eggers' 2018 NYT Best Seller 'the Monk of Mokha'—after 8 years of working with Yemeni coffee farmers, along with his team, is proud to launch Al-Khanshali Coffee Estates. Operating as a boutique coffee producer and importer, specializing in Yemen, Al-Khanshali Estates is launching this year with its first four farms; Al-Khanshali I, Al-Khanshali II, Al-Khanshali III and Al-Khanshali IV. The flagship farm, Al-Khanshali I is owned and operated by Mokhtar, with complete control over each step in the production process. The others function as partner farms, where Al-Khanshali Estates works intimately with the farmer and handles all of the processing.
Al-Khanshali I is the flagship farm of Al-Khanshali Estates. While our partner estates undoubtedly produce exceptional coffees, Al-Khanshali I is the only estate that we have complete control over each step in the production. Located in West Haraz, it's both accessible and desirable for its unique microclimate and extreme high elevation. Our future plans for this flagship farm include an onsite coffee lab, a complete processing facility and an onsite mill. This farm gives us an unprecedented opportunity for experimental processing techniques, genetic R&D and so much more. We couldn't be more exited for this project to take shape.
