Dongka is a family run farm and washing station with over 20 years experience in mostly commercial coffee production. It now produces some of the most consistent specialty-grade washed coffees in the Menglian region.
In 2019, Indochina’s origin partners, Yunnan Coffee Traders (YCT) helped to make modifications to the washing station with the aim of producing larger volumes of the higher-scoring coffees. This is the first year that Indochina are bringing this coffee to the UK / Europe.
Indochina has worked in partnership with YCT since they first began importing coffees to the UK in 2016. As a pioneer of the Chinese specialty coffee industry in Menglian County, Yunnan Province, YCT operates farming, mill, research, and training facilities. Its mission is three-fold:
• create opportunities for Yunnan farmers to engage in sustainable production practices
• employ industry best-practices for sourcing, processing, wholesaling, and exporting coffees
• supply coffee to importers and roasters who care about sustainability, traceability, and transparency
