Balqees specialises in sourcing the purest, rarest honey straight from the hive from Yemen and other countries around the world. They work with nomadic beekeepers and small farmers in remote areas uncontaminated by modern agriculture and only supply raw honey, which has not been heat treated or pasteurised to ensure that all the health giving nutrients of the honey itself are locked in. Balqees believe in combining purity, goodness and exclusivity to bring you a taste of luxury that embodies the spirit of nature.
“Boon”, the Ethiopian word to describe the tree, the coffee bean and the drink made from it is a fitting name for a coffee roasters that only sources its coffee beans from Ethiopia, the native land of Boon Coffee’s founder Orit Mohammed. Sourcing world-renowned premium coffee varieties such as Yirgacheffe, Sidama, Harrar and Lekempti as fresh, current harvest green coffee beans, Boon Coffee then roasts locally in Dubai to capture the rich, exotic and diverse flavours and aromas that each variety brings. Not only does Boon Coffee pride itself on sourcing only the best quality organic coffee beans, it also understands the importance of giving back to the Ethiopian community and so a portion of its profits go directly to help children in coffee farming communities attend school.
