I was in Yemen a few years ago, and when ordering "Yemenite Coffee" there, one would get a cup with a liquid which tasted like coffee, but from the intensity, color and strength was more like tea.
I was told the coffee was made from the peelings of the coffee beans (because all the beans are determined for export).
Is it true that they brew their coffee with the peelings of roasted coffee beans? How exactly is this kind of coffee made? Does it have a special name? Are there similar kinds of drinks?
