Unroasted - Yunnan Catimor

YUNC-0.5

Sold out. More stock expected soon

Referred to by local farmers as 'new seed'. Catimor is dry-processed by the Xinzhai Coffee Co-op (see below for more information).

Local farmers favour this variety, although it is not considered a premium coffee in the same way that Yunnan Old Seed is. It is typically higher in quality than Yunnan Catimor B.

Grown at an elevation of 1,200 metres above sea level, this coffee is supplied to us by the Xinzhai Coffee Co-op in Xinzhai Village, Lujiangba Township in southwest China's Yunnan Province. With land that slopes between 900-1,200 metres above sea level, Xinzhai ranks as China's highest altitude coffee-growing region. The Xinzhai Coffee Co-op was established in 2005, and became one of China's first villages to form a co-op and market its coffee directly to consumers.
