The Monk of Mokha is the latest “gripping, triumphant adventure” (Los Angeles Times) from bestselling author Dave Eggers. The book tells the incredible true story of Yemeni American Mokhtar Alkhanshali, a twenty-four-year-old college dropout working as a doorman in San Francisco, and his dream of resurrecting the ancient art of Yemeni coffee. When Alkhanshali journeys deep into his family’s ancestral homeland, where coffee was first brewed, war breaks out and he finds himself trapped in Sana. Eggers captures Mokhtar’s journey through a war zone to Seattle with a suitcase full of coffee and a mission to share Yemen's lost treasure.
