About Chinese Banka Washed
Chinese coffee entered the coffee market fairly recently, and is gaining interest from all over the globe. We are very excited to announce our first ever Chinese coffee here at Redber, it's a delicious one and one we recommend!

Banka farm and washing station is based in Menglian Dai, Lahu and Va Autonomous County, Yunnan and is named after the two adjacent villages (Banka Yi and Banka Er) where the coffee cherry is harvested.

Our origin partners, Yunnan Coffee Traders manage Banka wet mill and a portion of the Banka farm, some 100 hectares of land, installing one of the region’s first optical sorters, experimenting with processing methods such as yeast fermentation and growing new varieties such as Pacamara and Yellow Bourbon.

Washed coffees are first pulped and then dry-fermented for 18 hours. Next, they are run through density channels before being spread out on drying patios for approximately 5-8 days.

Oooh we like this one....

Changed our order this month from Brazilian Santos to this little number and wow, it's right up our street. Smooth, not too citric/acidic. Rich chocolate and hazelnut tones (makes the flat smell great all day long) with a caramel aftertaste. Perfect for our taste buds.

It's... coffee?

For me other Asian blends (especially South-East) have much more uniqueness than this one, but it's an adequate coffee that tastes somehow equally, bitter, sweet and acidic! Nothing to write home about I'm afraid.
