*Between the 15th and 18th centuries, coffee production and exports were monopolized at the port of Mocha, on the Red Sea coast of Yemen.


**Yemeni coffee is grown and produced under difficult conditions. Annual rainfall combined with poor irrigation is a recurring constraint. Competition with Qat, a plant with stimulating properties that offers a better financial return than coffee, motivates farmers to choose this crop. Finally, difficult transportation and political instability have always and still have an impact on Yemeni coffee.
