China Banka Washed Coffee

Banka is a washing station in the Yunnan province of China, named after two nearby villages Bank Ye and Bank Er. The farm is run by Yunnan Coffee Traders (YCT) - as a pioneer of the Chinese specialty coffee industry in Yunnan Province, YCT operates farming, mill, research, and training facilities.

For this washed lot the coffee is first pulped and then dry-fermented for 18 hours. Next, it is run through density channels before being spread out on drying patios for approximately 5-8 days. The end result is a clean cup with an apple acidity and a sugary sweetness.

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.
