Helping Yemeni Farmers
The Gourmet Yemeni coffee is known as one of the richest and most highly prized coffees in the world
The genesis of this concept began with the mid-eastern country of Yemen. Located 8500 miles from Houston Texas USA, it is one of the poorest countries in both the Middle-East and the world. The country has been devastated by both civil war and the widespread use of a narcotic derived from a large shrub called the Khat shrub. The shrub’s narcotic, cathinone, a Schedule 1 psychoactive drug according to the US Controlled Substance Act, is produced by the plant.
Wondering how we will do it?
After visiting the country and seeing, first hand, the devastation brought about by war and narcotics, two Houston teens, brothers Hasan and Hussain Rangwala, wanted to find a way to help the people of Yemen rise from poverty and addiction. They developed the idea of selling high-quality Yemeni coffee in the US.
