Yunnan, our core region here at Rabbit Hole Roasters.
We feel it’s important to support new terroir and emerging origins. Coffees from China were a total discovery for us last year, and we are truly happy to work closely with Yunnan Coffee Traders. We are already planning some very interesting projects for the next upcoming harvest.
We were pleasantly surprised by the intense sweetness and complexity of those coffees. It’s only their second or third quality harvest, so it’ll keep improving quickly in the coming years.
We are thrilled to be a part of this journey from almost the beginning, and we committed to partner with them for years to come - something a lot of roasters don’t do. It’s important to do so to provide as much stability as possible to our menu, but more importantly for the producers who now know we are committed to them for a certain quantity, every year!
This lot is the third picking, meaning later in the harvest season. Since coffee is picked when cherries are bright red, multiple picking need to happen to have the highest quality.
This lot is heavy in nuts, chocolate, and sweetness, and offers a syrupy mouthfeel.
