I am opening up a dessert & cafe in the up and coming weeks and I shall be naming it Little Aden. The reason behind this is quite simple, the history of coffee around the world has its origins from Aden, together with the fact that Aden had a deep and proud history with Britain.
Although I was born an bred in the UK, my heritage is from Aden, my late father was in the British army for little under 12 years mostly during WW2 fighting for Britain. Like many Brits with Adeni Heritage we are proud of it so for me it was a no-brainer calling it Little Aden.
In my dessert/cafe I was hoping to have a feature wall with lots of little pictures of Little Aden put together. Therefore, could anyone see any objection of me using some of the pictures from this website?
No problem with me if you use some of the pictures for your cafe. Where will it be located? I am sure sone of the members of this sute may pay you a visit if it is near where they live.
Hi Fadel اَلسَّلامُ عَلَيْكُم — وَعَلَيْكُمُ اَلسَّلامُ
I was unaware of the origins of coffee in Yemen, but after a bit of googling, I found that it was grown in the highlands and exported from Mocha, further up the coast:
"Mocha is famous for being the major marketplace for coffee (Coffea arabica) from the 15th century until the early 18th century. Even after other sources of coffee were found, Mocha beans (also called Sanani or Mocha Sanani beans, meaning from Sana'a) continued to be prized for their distinctive flavor—and remain so even today. The coffee itself did not grow in Mocha, but was transported from places inland to the port in Mocha, where it was shipped abroad."
Good luck with your venture.
I live a bit too far from you to pop in for a cup, though.
