Thousands of years of tea cultivation have laid a deep agricultural foundation in Pu-erh, Yunnan. Standing in compelling contrast to this is Comac Estate, an innovating coffee farm that embraces contemporary experimentation to capture the fullest expression of their beans. Techniques used around the world are prized here: semi-washed processing, which requires extensive training to master and is common in Indonesian coffees; African-style raised-bed drying for humidity control; and experimentation with varietals not often grown in the region. The payoff is a unique lot with comforting flavors of deep-green herbs and rich chocolate, culminating in a malty sweetness. It is the embodiment of an unabashedly new era of Yunnan coffee.
