Specialty Coffee for Hotels in China
Professional Coffee for Coffee Professionals
We understand the challenge of supplying coffee to hotels. You are a mini economy with cafes, bars, restaurants, conferences and, of course, hotel rooms. Each one of these has different specific requirements as to the type of coffee they need. Add to this the fact that every little thing you do reflects on your business and creates a positive or negative image in your guest’s minds.
At ManLao River, we want to help you create the best experience possible for your guests. Whether you operate a chain of hotels with operations across China or own/operate a boutique hotel in an isolated mountain village, we can make your coffee amazing.
Some of the solutions we provide to hotels:
- Brewing coffees for conferences and breakfast buffets
- Single-use pour-over drip bags for guest rooms
- Espresso coffees for your Italian style coffee machines
- Premium single-origin pour over coffees for your executive floor guests and five star restaurants
As well as our coffee, we can also provide training for your staff in all aspects of coffee making. Using our in-house training services we can make sure that your front of house staff not only know how to prepare an amazing coffee, but also introduce them to stories behind each coffee.
Many of our coffees are from Yunnan province in China and are some of the best examples of the provinces recent explosion onto the speciality coffee world stage. With a number of our green coffee suppliers now second or third generation coffee producers, they have amazing histories and knowledge of how the industry began and the path that brought them to international recognition. Helping your guests understand how China’s home grown coffee has evolved will make their visit even more special.
There are few places in the world where it is possible to drink the best speciality coffees in the country of origin. In most origins, the best coffee gets exported. In China, the best specialty coffee stays in the country for the enjoyment of the Chinese people. If your guests have only ever tried coffees that have been transported for months around the world, give them a taste of the freshness that is only available by drinking locally sourced coffee from China.

About ManLao River
ManLao River Coffee started as a poverty elevation program in the foothills of the Himalayas close to the China / Laos border. The land where we grew coffee was regularly traversed by Asian Elephants and the communities that we worked with did end up growing out of proverty. At the same time as we ran that project, we also established a speciality coffee roaster in Kunming with the goals of displaying the best of Yunnan’s coffees.
Today the land that we utilised for the farms has been transfered on and continues to produce some of Yunnan’s finest speciality coffees. At the roastery we have diversified into not only roasting amazing coffees from our old land, but also sourcing great coffees other parts of Yunnan and around the world. Our goal is still to put Yunnan coffee on the coffee map and to do it by providing amazing experiences to our customers.
