Yunnan Coffee
By Everyday Coffee Roasters

Yunnan coffee has been known for hundreds of years, and it all started when a French priest brought a coffee sprout into what is now Zhu Ku La village, Binchuan District, Dali City, Yunnan. This small sprout rooted itself deep into the Chinese culture, and this century-old coffee tree still stands tucked away in the mysterious and peaceful village. Nowadays, the main coffee-growing areas within this region are Pu'er, Baoshan, and Dehong.

Pu'er 普洱: If you are a tea lover, you will certainly have heard this name, as this tea takes its name from the homonym city. However, in recent years Pu'er is not only the capital of Yunnan tea but also of Yunnan coffee. 

Baoshan 保山: The main variety of Yunnan coffee is arabica, known locally as Yunnan Xiaoli Coffee, originated in Baoshan from 1950.

Dehong prefecture 德宏: Well-known for its organic coffee plantations.

In March 2011, the Development and Reform Commission of Yunnan and the Yunnan Department of Agriculture established the Yunnan Coffee Industry Development Plan (2010-2020). It aims to lift Yunnan up to be the capital of quality coffee and the center of Chinese coffee industry. By 2015, Yunnan has 66,667 hectares of coffee farms and will increase to 100,000 hectares by 2020.

Costa Rica Finca Herbazu 'Red Honey'
By Everyday Coffee Roasters

Costa Rica contributes less than 1% of the world’s coffee production, yet it has a strong reputation for producing relatively good quality coffee like this which is grown on a farm in Herbazu by Tono Barantez, located in the West Valley Region along the volcanic mountain range. This coffee has notes of red plum, black raspberry, and raw sugar with a syrupy body and only available in small quantities (only 25 sacks worldwide).

West Valley has a high percentage of Cup of Excellence winners and grows an abundance of both the Costa Rica–specific varieties Villa Sarchi and Villa Lobos, as well as some of the more “experimental” varieties such as SL-28 and Gesha. 

Costa Rica was the first Central American country to have a fully established coffee industry dated back from the 1700s. In recent years, coffee producers are increasingly interested in using variety selection as another way to stand out in the competitive market: SL-28 and Gesha are becoming more common, and local varieties like Villa Sarchi and Venesia.
