A new chapter in the central Ohio coffee culture narrative is being written, thanks to the expansion of Qamaria Yemeni Coffee. Known for their rich, flavorful blends that pay homage to Yemen’s ancient coffee traditions, Qamaria is opening its doors for a second time in the region. This comes with an intriguing twist – the latest outlet is managed by a dynamic trio of college students, blending entrepreneurship with authentic coffee culture. Here’s a closer look at what makes this coffee house more than just a place for a caffeine fix.

A Blend of Tradition and Modernity

Located at 8911 S. Old State Road in Lewis Center, the new Qamaria Yemeni Coffee outlet had its soft opening on March 23. Hours from 7:00 AM to 3:00 AM will remain throughout Ramadan, ending on April 9, with an announcement of new hours to follow. The owners proudly claim it as “Ohio’s biggest coffee house,” offering a unique experience with its spacious seating and Arabic-inspired decor, featuring textile-covered lounge sofas that invite patrons into a world of comfort and cultural richness.

From Yemen to Ohio: The Journey of a Coffee Bean

Qamaria Yemeni Coffee’s journey from a dream to a burgeoning franchise is a tale of perseverance and passion. Founders Hatem and Munif, two Yemeni entrepreneurs, embarked on an eight-year quest to build a supply chain capable of sourcing the rare Yemeni coffee beans. Their efforts have not only made these exquisite beans available across the United States but have also turned their vision into a reality, with Qamaria becoming a beloved destination for coffee enthusiasts.

A Menu That Celebrates Yemeni Flavors

The menu at Qamaria is a testament to Yemen’s rich culinary heritage, featuring a variety of Yemeni teas, concentrated coffees, and lattes that are sweet yet nutty. The dessert options are just as tempting, offering a sweet finale to the coffee experience. It’s this commitment to authenticity and quality that sets Qamaria apart, making each sip a journey to Yemen’s storied coffee culture.

Beyond serving delicious beverages and treats, Qamaria Yemeni Coffee is deeply committed to making a positive impact. The franchise supports the farmers and artisans in Yemen, helping to uplift communities and ensure that the tradition of Yemeni coffee continues for generations to come. It’s a mission that resonates deeply with the values of central Ohio’s coffee lovers, who appreciate not just the taste but also the story behind their cup of coffee.

A Vision for the Future

As Qamaria Yemeni Coffee opens its newest location, it’s clear that this is just the beginning of a larger movement. The franchise is not only introducing Ohioans to the rich flavors of Yemeni coffee but also building a community around shared values of sustainability, cultural appreciation, and entrepreneurship. With plans to expand further, Qamaria is set to become a cornerstone of coffee culture in central Ohio and beyond.
