Authentication of Coffeea Arabica genetics using DNA fingerprinting technology.
AlKawlah uses a unique technique called Alchemy, a technique which has been gaining momentum and popularity over the last few years.
The alchemy process relies on a combination of pressure (up to 10 bar/145 psi), temperature control, gas regulation and managed drying, to develop truly unique coffee with unparalleled flavour, expression and structure.
AlKawlah is a village in the region of Hayma Kharjiya, on the west side of Sana’a City. The region is incredibly popular for growing coffee, with some 1,000 families harvesting it. Due to the altitude of 700-2100, Hayma Kharjiya is known for its mild weather and fresh air, as well as the chain of mountains - called the Navy Blue Mountains (due to the colour). The air is so clear that you can stand anywhere on the mountain and see all the regions: Bani Matar to the east, Al-Hayma Al Dakhiliyah to the north, Manakhah to the west, and Dhamar to the south. Sana’a is one of the highest capital cities in the world, with an elevation of 2,300m. It has one of the longest continuous coffee cultures in the world and much of the coffee consumed there is prepared using the traditional Ibrik method, brewing coffee in a copper or silver pot over hot charcoal.
