First known reference to Coffee The first documented reference to coffee in any language was in the 9th century by the Arabian physician Rhazes, followed by a description on coffee’s medicinal value from the physician Avicenna in his Cannon of Medicine.

Over many centuries, the history of coffee and Yemen have been intertwined.

Ancestor seedlings of Haraaz coffee were the first cultivated coffee in the world, grown on high stone-sloped terraces at elevations between 1,500 and 3,000 meters above sea level.
