Let’s take a closer look at what makes RAW Coffee Company stand out from the rest.

What is Arabic Coffee?

Arabic coffee is a popular variant of brewed coffee and is quite popular in Dubai. It is also known as ‘Qahwa’ and is served in a small cup with a floral pattern known as Finjan, which is a symbol of Arab hospitality. Arabic coffee is made from 'Arabica beans,' which are grown 1000 to 2000 meters above sea level and account for 60-70 percent of global coffee production. These beans originated in Ethiopia, then spread to Yemen, Mecca, Egypt, the Levant, Turkey, and finally to Europe, resulting in global popularity. Soon after, other countries including as Indonesia, Sudan, Kenya, Central America, Southeast Asia, and China began planting Arabica beans and shipping them to places where the exquisite flavor of these beans was yet unknown. Today, all these countries grow Arabica coffee beans, which are famous throughout the world for their quality and purity.

About RAW Coffee Company

RAW Coffee Company is a home-grown coffee brand in Dubai that serves premium quality specialty coffee. The coffee beans are sourced from around the world, roasted with care to offer single origin coffee and coffee blends. It was founded in 2007 by Kim Thompson and Matt Toogood, two coffee connoisseurs with a passion for ethically sourced organic beans and a desire to bring specialty coffee to the people of Dubai. The company first started out by supplying high-quality roasts of 100 per cent original Arabica beans to many of the city’s coffee shops. As word of their exceptional coffee spread, the founders decided to take their business to the next level. They opened their first café in Al Quoz, an industrial area of Dubai. The café was a huge success and RAW Coffee Company soon became a popular destination for coffee lovers in Dubai. Today, customers come here to sip on a perfectly brewed (single-origin or specialty) coffee and to better understand the journey of a coffee bean on a tour of the roastery.

RAW sources premium green beans from around the world and have selected the niche specialty market looking for quality and sustainability. It is important for them that their beans are ethically sourced and the farmers growing the coffee are treated fairly and can make a sustainable living. The founders realized that coffee is not just about the beans, its about how much care is put into the sourcing and roasting. It’s also about managing other variables like water quality, training, and finding the right equipment manufacturers.
