Saudi Arabia will celebrate “2022 as the Year of Saudi Coffee,” according to Minister of Culture. A wide variety of year-long activities, initiatives, and events will be held to mark the celebration of this cultural element which is closely linked to the Kingdom’s identity and culture, he said.
The celebration comes within the Quality of Life Program, one of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 realization programs.
Jazan is one of the major coffee producing regions in the world. Tipped as the green gold of Jazan, Khalwani coffee is considered as one of the finest types of coffee beans in the world. The beans are a national treasure, crucial to the preservation of Saudi heritage and cultural identity.
This high quality coffee is being prepared in a different color and taste in each one of the Kingdom’s 13 provinces and is served to guests in multiple ways and methods, which gives Saudi coffee its privacy and unique cultural depth.
