In a coffee shop on Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg, Ibrahim Alhasbani grabs a 70 pound bag of coffee beans, sourced from Yemen, where his family has owned a coffee bean farm for generations. Alhasbani is bringing his family’s long tradition of coffee making to New York City.
“I feel so proud to continue to do what my grandfather do and what my father do,” Alhasbani told NY1. “And build this communication between us and other countries. And tell people more about Yemen and more about our coffee.”
