Our Story begins in a remote village in the lush tribal highlands of Yafa, South Yemen. 

Here, an eclectic family of farmers and merchants make their living in the midst of a warring period of national unification; an event that would come to alter the future of Yemenis forever. 

With dreams of a brighter future, the family finally fled the crippling grip of dictatorship in our home country of Yemen. In 1995, the family of Yafai migrants found themselves a new home in Brooklyn, New York.

Bringing with them an inherent understanding of trade and hustle, our family set up Yafa Deli, a bustling quick-stop bodega in Sunset Park with a namesake honoring our roots. Through a culture of hard work, care, and friendliness, we have had the pleasure of serving the lovely constituents of our Sunset Park community for over twenty-five years.


Born in Yemen, Roasted in Brooklyn

In 2019, We set off to create a new space for our community. Our goal was to bring together the homeland we were birthed in and the one that raised us. All while holding exploring and showcasing our strong Yemeni roots.

In 2020, in an effort to revitalize Yemens dwindling coffee trade, we began a journey into creating our own sustainable coffee supply chain. Through fair wages, educational programs and financial support, Yemen is experiencing a coffee renaissance. One which is set to dominate future trade.

Today, we're working with dozens of farmers from Yemen to Costa Rica and beyond, making sure that they are at the forefront of the coffee industry. 

Yafa Cafe offers a variety of goods. From ethically sourced coffee to Yemeni inspired sweets, food, and spices.

Stop in today for an authentic Brooklyn-Yemeni experience.
