 BEAUTIFUL BREW: New Canton coffee shop unique treat for java lovers

Canton’s Qahwah House, located at 42051 Ford Road, opened June 10.

Named for the Arabic word for coffee, Canton’s Qahwah House is an exquisitely-decorated space that delivers premium java and a comfortable, welcoming vibe (and amazing pastries).

Founded in 2017 by Dearborn resident Ibrahim Alhasbani, who in 2011 moved to the United States from Yemen, Canton’s Qahwah House (42051 Ford Road) is the franchise’s sixth location in the United States and third in southeast Michigan, joining two in Dearborn.

A Westland location is set to open later this year, revealed Awraa Alasadi, manager of the Canton Qahwah House.

What makes the Qahwah House’s primary product distinctive, Alasadi said, is that its coffee is made from beans sourced directly from Alhasbani’s family’s Yemen farms.

“The beans are organic and have a natural sweetener and lower acid than most coffee beans,” Alasadi shared.

Coffee has rich history in Yemen

Yemen is to coffee what Detroit is to the automobile industry, many java experts believe.

While Ethiopia is hailed as the “birthplace of coffee”, Yemen is the place that gave coffee to the world, according to worldcoffeeresearch.org.

“Historical records indicate that coffee seeds were taken from the coffee forests of Southwestern Ethiopia across the southern tip of the Red Sea to Yemen in the mid-fifteenth century, where it was first cultivated as a commercial crop,” the website states.

Six centuries later, these premium organic Yemeni coffee beans have made a significant retail impact in Canton.

Qahwah House’s coffee is brewed with no added preservatives, artificial additives or flavors, it proudly proclaims.

Unique perspective

Alhasbani was raised in Yemen amidst fields of coffee plants — giving him a unique perspective in the business.

“Our expertise originates from a long line of ancestors, all committed to the tradition and innovation of coffee,” Qahwah House’s website says. “From this inherited practice, we know what it means to love coffee.”

While coffee is the business’s star attraction, its supporting cast is pretty appealing as well.

Among the favorites of the business’s first-week visitors is Sabaya, a flaky, layered bread cake that is freshly-baked-to-order with layers of traditionally-prepared Yemeni butter.

Visitors to Canton’s Qahwah House will be wowed by is west-facing decorative wall that describes that shows the historic distribution of coffee Arabica.

Special space

The interior’s stunning appearance is the result of several months of restoration work, Alasadi said.

“We love Canton,” she said. “It’s a beautiful place, a nice area with very nice people.

“We’re happy to be able to bring them our quality organic coffee and delicious pastries.”
