Over the past week, we’ve been cupping type samples of the new season lots from China (all fantastic, it has to be said) and we’re confident that our shipment will arrive in the UK late summer – August / September.
We thought it might be a good opportunity to introduce the remarkable story behind one of our most popular coffees – Ou Yang. This coffee is named after Mr Ou, an innovative and visionary producer, who created a coffee farm and the surrounding infrastructure around it entirely from scratch to support the livelihoods of the local hilltribe communities.
Last month our Ou Yang coffee, sourced in Yunnan and roasted by Quarter Horse, was included in Dog & Hat’s specialty coffee subscription package. We are big fans of their project, we actually are subscribed to their monthly service! So the green beans we had imported from China made the whole cycle and came back to us ready to grind and enjoy.
