Port of Mokha
Presenting world's most exquisite coffee

📸 Photo & Video Production
When Mokhtar escaped from Yemen with two bags of coffee beans, he never expected them to rate the highest of any coffee ever. He came to me with his story, the history of coffee (which began in Yemen), and gorgeous beans. From there, we proceeded to develop a brand, a narrative, physical products, a digital storefront, and content to communicate the story. To execute our creative vision, we teamed up with Manual Creative for branding and packaging design, and Eastward for video production.
