Carbon negative coffee



Indochina, our Asian coffee importers, have worked in partnership with Yunnan Coffee Traders since 2016. As a pioneer of the Chinese specialty coffee industry in the Menglian County of Yunnan, YCT operates farming, mill, research, and training facilities.

Its mission is threefold: to create opportunities for Yunnan farmers to engage in sustainable production practices; to employ industry best-practices for sourcing, processing, wholesaling, and exporting coffees; and to supply coffee to importers and roasters who care about sustainability, traceability, and transparency.

Aqi Badu is named after the local village where its cherries are harvested. These cherries are run through an optical color sorter to remove foreign material and cherries which are over or under-ripe. The cherries are then fermented in a tank of fresh water for around two days, with time and temperature monitored regularly to ensure over-fermentation doesn’t occur. The cherries are finally spread and dried on raised beds on the drying patio, prior to hulling (the removal of dried skin and fruit flesh).

We don’t label our coffee as espresso or filter. Instead, for each coffee we create a unique roasting profile, designed to bring out the best flavours from its origin, farm and milling method. That’s why, instead, we label our coffee based on the experience it brings to the cup.

MELLOW & BALANCED: Accessible, low acidity coffee for gentle enjoyment.

VIBRANT & BRIGHT: A sweet, punchy and intense reminder that coffee is a fruit.

UNIQUE & INTERESTING: Boundary-pushing coffee unlike anything you’ve tried before.

RARE & ACCLAIMED: Truly special stuff, from rare lots to award-winning coffees.

DECAF: Organic, naturally decaffeinated coffee as vibrant as the real thing.
