Here at Fortnum’s, the name Yunnan conjures up the scents and visions of the ‘home of tea’ with its evocative, wild production, mist drenched valleys and Pu’er tea factories. However, the Chinese region also plays host to an exciting new frontier of coffee cultivation, harbouring all of the ingredients for exceptional Arabica production, with its fertile soils, high elevations, a perfect climate and dedicated coffee farmers.
Lijiang Rong is a pillar of the local community of Paliang and its surrounding villages. His son, who shares his father’s name, is continuing the family tradition of processing both their own beautiful coffees and those of neighbouring farmers in this remote, but beautiful, corner of Yunnan.
Velvety and lively, this dark roast, washed arabica is highly drinkable with lasting toffee notes and a chocolatey finish in the cup. Perfect for all-day sipping – from your morning wake-up cup to an after-dinner treat.
Available in whole bean coffee tins.
