Publisher Description

The Monk of Mokha is the exhilarating true story of a young Yemeni American man, raised in San Francisco, who dreams of resurrecting the ancient art of Yemeni coffee but finds himself trapped in Sana’a by civil war.

Mokhtar Alkhanshali is twenty-four and working as a doorman when he discovers the astonishing history of coffee and Yemen’s central place in it. He leaves San Francisco and travels deep into his ancestral homeland to tour terraced farms high in the country’s rugged mountains and meet beleagured but determined farmers. But when war engulfs the country and Saudi bombs rain down, Mokhtar has to find a way out of Yemen without sacrificing his dreams or abandoning his people.

History, international events and a personal saga cliff hanger

Mr. Eggers has once again delivered an engaging tale that is a edge of your seat page turner. I loved the history of the coffee industry and the extraordinary saga about Mokhtar Alkhanshali and his quest to restore the quality and status of Yemeni coffee in the company of the best in the world.
