Princess Peacock processing

The Princess Peacock undergoes processing through the esteemed 'red wine-natural' method, a technique that has gained prominence in Yunnan in recent years. Crafted exclusively from 100% ripe coffee cherries sourced at an elevated altitude of 1,500 meters, the coffee undergoes meticulous processing involving low-temperature fermentation, natural drying on racks, and a deliberate piling method for a nuanced, red wine-like flavor profile.

This exceptional coffee stands out due to its exclusive use of high-quality, high-altitude ripe coffee cherries, resulting in a remarkable level of sweetness. The precision applied in fermentation control contributes to a vibrant flavor expression with rich layers, providing an expressive experience akin to a gracefully dancing Peacock Princess. This distinctive blend allows connoisseurs to savor the authentic aroma of the Menglian region in Yunnan.

Notably, the Princess Peacock achieved recognition by securing the 7th position in the unwashed category in both the 2022 and 2023 editions of the prestigious Best of Yunnan Green Coffee Competition.
