China Aqi Badu Coffee
2022 marks our fifth year showcasing coffee from China.
Origin were the first European coffee roaster to visit this newly developed speciality coffee region, and we’ve noticed a tremendous improvement in quality ever since. We’ve also valued spending more time working with IndoChina, who continue to help importing coffee to the roastery in Cornwall.

Banka Washing Station is based in Menglian, Yunnan. It’s named after the two nearby villages (Banka Yi and Banka Er) where many of the producers live. This coffee was grown slightly further afield at the beautiful village, Aqi Badu.

There are many regions in Yunnan that produce good coffee, but we found that the Menglian region has its own distinct quality. Aqi Badu in particular, was a stand out at our cupping for it’s floral-like intensity and chocolately finish.

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.
