This super clean and invigorating offering comes from seven-year old trees, shade-grown in parts of the Fuyan Co-operative farm, which produces only eight tons of speciality coffee per annum. The farm is situated in the Menglian Dai, Lahu and Va Autonomous County in Yunnan, China, at altitudes of 1600 - 1650 meters above sea level. On the farm, only organic fertilisers and cherry skins are used to aid production and pesticides are only ever turned to – as stipulated by 4C certification – in extreme circumstances. Here, they also grow a well-regarded tea as well as sugar cane and a number of other fruits and vegetables.
This is a co-operative genuinely dedicated to improving the quality of the coffee they grow in this fertile and beautiful land. Spurred on by a handful of farmers who have long seen the potential of consistently well-processed and carefully sorted cherry, there is a real passion here to push the boundaries year after year. The farmers of the cooperative have been busy planting Typica, Red Bourbon and Pacamara seedlings over the past few years – and even experimenting with some Geisha.
