Yirong, an exception on the palate. Produced in the heart of Yunnan like tea, it is a very favorable region for culture and biodiversity. Yirong's Chinese coffee was ranked among the 40 best coffees in the world in 2017. In addition, this exceptional coffee has also been served as an espresso at SCA festivals. At the technical level, it is washed and dried on the terrace, either on patio beds which allow the acceleration of drying for optimal quality. Coffee is mainly processed in the Megnlian Yirong area. It is a 20-year-old form of cooperative that helps people make a living from coffee. Indeed, many families of minority groups like Lahu, Wa and Dai live from the production of coffee. Thanks to the Megnlian Yirong cooperative, families are able to afford a decent income to make a living from growing grain. By producing Catimor P3 and P4 as main varieties, the Yirong cooperative has a powerful altitude and an adequate climate for coffee production, not to mention access to quality water which is ideal for grain . All the coffees brought to the Yirong Cooperative are rated as very sweet and tasty. This is surely due to the mountain spring used for fermentation. What is specialty coffee?
