Ta’leef Collective began as an outreach program in 2005 and was established as a 501c3 (72-1528691) nonprofit organization in 2009. Out of our unwavering dedication to serving the youth, assisting new comers to Islam and welcoming guests, a dynamic community has grown with locations in Fremont, Ca. and Chicago, Il.

We provide the ideal experience for anyone curious to learn about Islam and offer a safe and friendly environment for newcomers and old friends. Our mantra “Come as you are, to Islam as it is” says it all. We don’t discriminate or judge and believe that dialogue, education and fellowship are integral to individual and collective growth.

In addition to our Community Care and educational programs we offer a series of training courses and are grateful to lead the increasingly important conversation around community leadership, cultural relevance and overall sustainability.

A special presentation with the Founder of Mocha Mill, Mokhtar Alkhanshali, this program will highlight the origins of coffee in Yemen and the Muslim world. Attendees will have an opportunity to not only learn about coffee, but also join for coffee tasting some of the first single origin, single farmer coffees from Yemen to enter the United States.

Growing up as a Yemeni American, coffee was always a part of Mokhtar's identity. His family has been growing coffee for at least nine generations. After studying and researching the Specialty coffee market and the Coffee sector in Yemen, Mokhtar founded Mocha Mill in 2014. Since then he has completely immersed himself in the specialty coffee world. He took it upon himself to become a specialty coffee sensory analyst and began training with the world-renowned coffee expert Willem Boot. On August 27, 2014, Mokhtar made international news by becoming the first licensed Q grader from Yemen. Mokhtar believes that Mocha Mill is a company that serves a higher ethical purpose to not only find great coffee, but to also serve the family farmers who grow these amazing coffees
