Arwa Yemeni Coffee was established as a way to share the rich Yemeni culture with the DFW community. As a family with deep roots in and fond memories of Yemen, we have a passion bringing awareness and amplifying the beauty of our homeland.
Yemen is widely known as the first cultivator of coffee in the world. Coffee farms are found in beautiful high-terraced mountains run by families, allowing for cultivation and production processes to remain free of industrial mechanizations.
As a majority female-owned company we wanted to pay homage to a strong female figure in Yemeni history, Queen Arwa.
As the first hujjah queen in the muslim world, queen Arwa was the only woman to hold both religious and political authority simultaneously. As a result of her intelligence and compassion for the well-being of her people, Yemen's economical growth and social development flourished.
Queen Arwa was a native of Haraz, an area well known in Yemen for its superior coffee beans.
