YiWu coffee is managed by three farmer families in the village of KanNiuShan (rough translation is: Grazing Cattle Mountain), located in the Shigaoqing region of Yunnan. KanNiuShan offers an exceptional micro-climate for production due to its position on the warmer northeast side of the mountain, which is extraordinarily steep but well protected from the cold weather that causes the opposite, more gently sloped side of the mountain to regularly develop frost.
This lot is processed with the natural method. After harvest, the cherries are laid on raised beds for 4-5 weeks, after which point they are hulled in a high-end dry mill in Pu’er city.
