Referred to by local farmers as 'new seed'. Catimor is dry-processed by the Xinzhai Coffee Co-op (see below for more information). Typically, a higher quality end result than Yunnan Catimor B. Local farmers favour this variety, although it is not considered a premium coffee in the same way that Yunnan Old Seed is.

This coffee, supplied to us by the Xinzhai Coffee Co-op, originates from the village of Xiaopingtian, Lujiang Township, Baoshan Municipality, Yunnan Province, located at an elevation of 1,200 metres above sea level. Hidden in mountains near Yunnan’s Baoshan City, Lujiangba, a world-renowned Arabica coffee producer, is one of the most productive coffee plantations in China. The Xinzhai Coffee Co-op was established in 2005, and became one of the first villages to form a co-op and market its coffee directly to consumers.
