WE ARE TAKING YOU BACK TO WHERE IT ALL STARTED
Did you know? Coffee originated in Arabia. Although there are many stories about how the original coffee bean was discovered, legend goes that a goat herder in a region presently known as Ethiopia discovered the power of coffee when he noticed how lively his goats became after feeding on coffee berries. Ancient Ethiopians brought the bean to Yemen where sufi monks began using it to make a drink that would keep them awake during night long meditations. Records show that coffee cultivation was developed by the 15th century. By16th century, coffee became an integral part of social life in the Middle East, where people gathered in their homes and in coffee houses to enjoy a cup of coffee. At Medina, we want to honor the world's original coffee drinkers by sharing the secret Arabic coffee recipes and the warm, joyful Arabic coffee ritual with you!
HELPING THE WORLD DISCOVER THE REAL ARABIA
Authentic food and drink is the best way to experience culture. And there's no better way to experience Arabia than through its coffee ritual. Behind the stigma, there is beauty, tradition, and most importantly, people. We help coffee drinkers around the world experience the renowned Arabian hospitality and warmth and feel a sense of connection through our live workshops and our authentic coffee kits. The Medina experience is about uniting people by gathering them around the same table, no matter where they live.
GREAT COFFEE REQUIRES GREAT INGREDIENTS
A perfect cup of coffee starts with quality beans. At Medina, we source the purest, best-tasting coffee beans in the world - grown by the original coffee drinkers in Yemen.
WE OWE IT TO OUR WORLD
There is no Planet B. We must take care of our Earth - both its environment and its people. Every aspect of the Medina experience - from sourcing beans and spices, to processing, to packaging - is sustainable, fair, and ethical.
YOU NEED MORE BALANCE IN YOUR LIFE
The modern pace of life can leave us drained, stressed, and disconnected. Taking care of your health and wellbeing is important and it starts with creating good self-care habits that help you feel balanced. When you are balanced, you feel centered, productive, responsible and connected. Without balance, we cannot contribute or feel fulfilled.
We designed the Medina coffee experience to be an essential tool for a balanced life:
