China Kaku Espresso Coffee

Kaku farm is located in Paliang, the largest coffee producing area in Menglian Dai, Lahu and Va Autonomous County, Yunnan. The family-run farm and washing station are led by Mr Li, processing coffee grown by surrounding villages of smallholders as well as their own land. Alongside coffee, the farm grows a variety of trees such as camphor tree (used as an essential oil), Tianzhugui (used in traditional Chinese medicine), with Huanghuali (a type of rosewood) grown to provide shade. The family are very well respected in the local community, helping many villagers with education and healthcare, which is hugely valued in this remote area.

They have also developed a close relationship with pickers from the Lahu tribe, many of whom come across the border from Myanmar before the Spring Festival to work as temporary labourers. Workers at the mill are mainly full-time employees with monthly salaries and bonuses given if the quality of the coffee is high. Mr Li and his family have been growing and processing commercial-grade coffee for over 20 years, typically selling to Nestle, Starbucks and Taiwan. The focus on speciality is less than 5 years old, yet the commitment to quality combined with higher than average elevation means it is producing some excellent washed lots.

A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe

Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID brings, many are choosing to tighten the purse strings and are replacing luxuries with cheaper, more basic products.For more: Comunicaffe International
...However, whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a premium home-brewed coffee or tea is still less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Many have already taken the time to improve their brewing skills since the outbreak, and so now have the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home. If this isn't you, then there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our range of independents to support you in doing just that. Easy to find and it won’t cost you the earth for these to be delivered.
