Saudi Arabia has a long history of coffee consumption due to the Saudi culture that considers coffee as an expression of hospitality and welcome.

Therefore, the Kingdom plays a crucial role in the global coffee market.

“It’s a delicious and common drink presented to their guests as an expression of generous hospitality and of honoring,” the researcher and former head of the Culture and Arts Association, Abdullah bin Abdullah Al-Saad said.

In 2021, the Saudi Ministry of Culture has designated 2022 as “The Year of Saudi Coffee,” celebrating an integral part of the Kingdom’s social traditions.

The Saudi authorities have recently given special support to coffee bean farms in Jazan to foster the coffee production and support the farmers.

“We are immensely proud of having a diverse, ancient culture, rooted in the depths of this blessed earth from the beginning of history to the present day. Saudi coffee is an important element of our rich culture, not only because it is a delicious beverage that accompanies us in all moments of our lives, but also because it conveys deep meanings of generosity, hospitality, cultural diversity, and the specificity of the unique Saudi culture.” Prince Badr bin Abdullah bin Farhan Al Saud, the Minister of Culture said.
