Flavour notes
Guava | Kumquat | Raisins | Sweet Fermented Rice Wine
Elegant, fragrant winey aroma. Bright acidity comes along with lingering sweetness. Tropical fruitiness adds another layer of flavour to the coffee which brings up the complexity. Boozy but not wild. 

 

Wa people is one of the local ethnic groups live in Menglian. They are friendly, hospitable, and love dancing and singing. Taking out the reserved home-brewed rice wine is one of the best ways to welcome their guests.

Mei, the Head Producer of Xin Gang, took the inspiration of processing this coffee from Wa's traditional red rice wine. After float sorted, fresh coffee cherries were sealed in tanks and fermented in low-temperature environment for three weeks, then dried on raised beds until it reaches ideal moist contents.
