Product Description

Organic Whole Coffee Beans

Shangri La is the town in Northern Yunnan which lends it name to this Arabica roast which produces a flavourful and aromatic coffee with a crisp berry note and honey richness. This coffee is sourced by Shangri La Farms following fair trade buying practices in support of sustainable livelihoods.

Preparation tip
Use one heaped tablespoon of ground coffee per 100ml of fresh water. Grind fine for espresso and medium for cafetieres and percolators.

Shangri La Farms coffee

It’s not only tea that Yunnan is famous for these days! Produced by farmers in the pristine mountains of southern Yunnan at between 800 and 1200 meters above sea level, Shangri La Farms coffee is grown avoiding the use of chemicals and pesticides. Only the highest quality beans from the harvest are selected. A portion of profits are given to the Yunnan Mountain Heritage Center in support of ecotourism and community development projects in Shangri La, Yunnan, China.
