Image of item
CD Audiobook

Unabridged ; CD.

Mokhtar Alkhanshali grew up in San Francisco, one of seven siblings brought up by Yemeni immigrants in a tiny apartment. At age twenty-four, unable to pay for college, he works as a doorman, until a statue of an Arab raising a cup of coffee awakens something in him. He sets out to learn the rich history of coffee in Yemen. He travels to Yemen and visits countless farms, collecting samples, eager to bring improved cultivation methods to the countryside. On the verge of success when civil war engulfs Yemen in 2015. The US Embassy closes, Saudi bombs began to rain down. Mokhtar is trapped in Yemen. Desperate to escape, he embarks on a passage that has him negotiating with dueling political factions and twice kidnapped at gunpoint. With no other options, he hires a skiff to take him, and his coffee samples, across the Red Sea.
