Lisha’s father began growing coffee on Tianjiao farm in 1997, when coffee production in Yunnan was just beginning. In 1999, severe frost destroyed his budding coffee farm. While that frost nearly ended his coffee growing career, he understood that coffee growing was a long term business and decided to rebuild his farm after the frost. And he’s flourished since.
Following the increase in coffee prices in 2005, Lisha’s father invested in another farm, NanBanghe farm. At the time, Lisha was attending university in Holland. After graduating, she came back to Yunnan to work alongside her father. She brought with her a focus on specialty coffee and an interest in supporting community development through coffee production.
Today, Lisha is a certified Q grader and has taken roasting, sensory evaluation and brewing courses. She has conducted hundreds of trials with cherry on their farms and has honed an Anaerobic Natural process to create a truly spectacular coffee.
Cherry is selectively handpicked and processed on the farm. Ripe, red cherry is placed in a sealed container and fermented anaerobically for 15 days. This extended fermentation process brings out the fruit and citrus notes in this coffee.
Following fermentation, cherry is laid on raised drying beds to sundry. Cherry is raked frequently to ensure even drying. Dry cherry is bagged and rested in a warehouse at the dry mill for 1 to 3 months before being prepared for export.
