Yanji Round of the Yunnan Coffee Cup 2018 China Brewers Championship

We just spent a fantastic few days in Yanji hanging out with coffee enthusiasts and this year's crop of brewing champions. Yanji was a fantastic city with a surprisingly vibrant coffee scene. There is a real mix of Korean and Chinese cultures in the region that was fascinating to be a part of.

Thanks for an...

Savaya Coffee Market

We are always pleased to see our coffee being shown off to the world. Yunnan has some amazing coffee flavours that we are glad to share with your customers.

Love your work! https://savayacoffee.com/product/yunnan-manlao-river-1lb/ https://savayacoffee.com/2018/08/08/the-little-brewer-that-could-aeropress/

ManLao River in the New York Times
