Why You'll love it:
Yunnan has long been known for its fertile highlands, which produce some of the most delicate and flavorful teas in China. Now, producers have begun to utilize these lush green mountains to create rich and complex coffee with soft nut and honey flavors. 

Story of the Bean:
This paradigm-shifting selection from one of the most beautiful agricultural centers in the world establishes China as a producer of refined and dynamic coffees. Producers Li Guangyun and his wife Nanuo have accomplished this incredible breakthrough by utilizing strict quality control methods and by working closely with harvesters to ensure that only ripe and flavorful cherries are produced. The resulting cup displays a dynamic honey-like sweetness balanced by earthy tea flavors and a touch of fruit. A new coffee drinking experience that marks a new era for Chinese coffee.

Best LC coffee I've had

Have had coffee in Yunnan province but this stuff is really special. Probably comes down to the roast. I've had it in store several times at Fishtown, $18 is a lot for 1 lb but you can be sure if it ever goes on sale I'm'a snap up a couple lbs of this. Really, really nice, and yes, I do get a little sense of tea on this, some sweetness but not overpowering. Definitely my favorite LC coffee so far, bummed it seems to not be one of the brewed offerings now.

Absolutely the best coffee I have ever had!

I thought China only had tea, but they have the coffee thing really dialed in. I love this coffee! The flavor notes are remarkably noticeable, and there is no acidity. The folks at La Colombe were not just adding fluff when they described the honey, quince, and Black tea notes. They are definitely there. I intend to give Yunnan to all my family for Christmas, and I know they will be delighted.
