Yunnan Provence, Pu'er
Strong Dark Chocolate, Low Acidity
The coffee capital of China, Yunnan produces 98% of the country’s premium coffee. We haven’t visited this region in quite a while because when we cupped last year’s crop it was just terrible. We are happy to announce that this year’s batch is great so we’re bringing it back into our rotation.
Pu’er coffee is grown at an elevation of approximately 1,000 meters, high up on steeped slopes overlooking green fields of tea. Don’t think of this coffee like a light bodied, tea-like Ethiopian Yirgacheffe however. We selected these particular beans because of their fine balance of rich, dark chocolate notes and incredibly low acidity. If you like your coffee viscous and strong, Pu’er is your cup of tea – so to speak. Supremely excellent for espresso and drip coffee aficionados.
We don’t recommend Yunnan roasted at this level. There isn’t enough fruity acidity to make it interesting. If you still want to give it a try we’ll roast it a tad darker than usual.
We lean toward the a full-city roast to experience a solid, full-bodied, chocolate coffee.
A very full-bodied, dark chocolate/caramel brew.
No pre-Ground beans?
All of our coffees come whole bean. We know it’s inconvenient but once ground, coffee sheds its flavour fast. If you care enough about coffee to get freshly roasted beans, then you owe yourself a good burr grinder.
