15. December | Xingang - China Capsule

blackberry, Hazelnut, Chocolate

China is the unknown coffee giant - also because of its tea culture. However, there are outstanding Chinese coffees - this espresso from Xingang brings chocolatey and nutty notes to the cup, the aftertaste then leaves you with a taste of ripe blackberries.

About the coffee

The Xingang farm is run by Yenai and her eldest daughter Zhaomei and covers an area of 28 hectares. The processing method used is based on a natural double fermentation. The coffee cherries are fermented in bags for three days before drying and then spread out on drying tables for two days. This is followed by another fermentation phase, this lasts until the aromas of the beans have matured. Finally, the last drying phase occurs, which takes about one month. This precision can also be tasted.

What is also special about this coffee is that it is produced exclusively by women, from planting to processing to roasting. It shows the power of women in the coffee industry from China to Europe. The flavour profile has also been designed to reflect the characteristics of modern women. The fruity aroma is charming and feminine, sweet like mango and dried fruit that reminds you of tropical warm wind. On the other hand, the strong body highlights the strength of modern women.

About the farm

The owners of the Xingang farm place great emphasis on organic coffee farming and strictly adhere to the rules for harvesting red cherries. The farm is also very experimental and innovative when it comes to processing methods. This pays off: In 2020, this coffee won second place in the Yunnan Green Coffee Competition 2020.

Yunnan is a very young experimental field for Specialty Coffee with great strength and potential. The natural conditions are favourable and suitable for growing high quality coffee. The growing area is located on the border of the subtropical and tropical regions. With the warm currents of the Indian Ocean and a cultivation altitude of 1400 to 1700 m, this region has a unique microclimate with a large temperature difference between day and night. The higher forests act as natural shade trees.

Cultivation

Cultivated with love by great farmers. 100% Arabica coffee, harvested when ripe and carefully processed. Sustainable and fairly traded.

Packaging

The 19grams capsule advent calendar is 100% recyclable and made from 100% recyclable materials. Even the capsules are compostable.

It doesn't get any greener than this!

Brewing

Our capsules contain 7g of coffee - that's a little more than commercial capsules from other suppliers like Nespresso. Therefore, use a little more water when brewing - like a lungo.

Bloody Good Advent

Since 8 years we roast the unique Coffee Advent Calendar. Now finally capsule compatible.
