Description: We are proud to share our first roasted offering from China! The farmers in the Yunnan region have been making tremendous steps towards specialty coffee quality, and you don't have to take my word for it if you try this special release!

It's well documented that we have an affinity for tigers here at Bodhi, so we couldn't wait to bring this roasted offering to life, celebrating 2022, the Year of the Tiger in the Chinese Zodiac. According to ancient stories, the Jade Emperor (or the Buddha, depending on the version) called for a race of all species on earth, and the 12 winners became the order of the Zodiac. Our Tiger coming in third, behind the Rat and the Ox.

The Tiger is animal who represents strength and bravery in the story of the Zodiac, so we plan on this being a big year for us all. Manifest a great year with us, and a cup of coffee inspired by The Tiger.


About Yirong:

When Jane Luo and her husband began growing coffee on Yirong Farm in 1987, their coffee was among the first coffee grown in Menglian prefecture, in Yunnan. Today, over 30 years later, their daughter, Jean Luo is working with her mother, Jane, to take the next step forward and expanding their business into exporting. Jane’s partner, Song, is also involved in managing Agronomy and Farm Operations.

Yirong Farm has also emerged as a community leader for economic opportunities, especially for minority nationalities, including the Va, La Hu and Dai nationalities. Yirong Farm’s focus on coffee production has spurred numerous industries that have been major job creators, allowing many households to purchase their own transportation and build houses for their family.

This certified organic coffee uses compost to fertilizer coffee trees, eliminating the need for chemical pesticides. The farm is watered year-round by a mountain spring.

This coffee is really great. I didn't notice until after I bought it that it was a medium roast, definitely interested in a lighter roast to taste the more subtle notes but overall I am enjoying it. It's sweet and smooth with a very bright snappy texture. Delicious!

We get our beans from the farms and roast coffee daily. We truly are farm to cup.
