Mokhtar Alkhanshali likes to say that the shortest distance between two people is a cup of coffee. In grappling with his identity as an American-Yemeni, Mokhtar went back to his homeland and developed a passion for coffee cultivation, eventually turning his newfound knowledge into a company called “Port of Mokha”. In this episode, we learn about the colonial history of Yemen and the civil war that broke in 2015. We also talk about what Arab Spring meant for Yemen, the massive food insecurity caused by the country’s ongoing conflict, and through Mokhtar’s lens, how coffee and responsible farming practices can be used as a tool to unite and heal a population.

Annabel Symington, Yemen Head of Communications at the World Food Program
