The meeting stressed the need for geographical mapping of coffee cultivation areas and identification of varieties and species, together with a plan for the Group's work mechanism and a document supported by photos and videos to ensure the inclusion of coffee in the World Heritage List as a legacy it must be preserved and what helps to restore its reputation as a natural heritage.
The Minister of Agriculture and Irrigation stressed the importance of the Yemeni coffee and the need to register it as a legacy that it must be preserved and protected from fraud and imported products.
Coffee was closely linked to the history and identity of the Yemeni people, therefore its reputation, quality, flavour and taste compared to other kinds of coffees must be preserved.
