Origin

Besides getting awarded Bronze Medal in the Australian International Coffee Awards (AICA) 2022, this coffee was also awarded Silver Medal previously in AICA 2020. Ou Yang coffee originates from Chilliarch Coffee Estate, where we paid a visit in December 2019. One of the owners of the coffee company is Mr. Ou Yang, who gracefully shared his business and life philosophy with us. Mr. Ou Yang takes care of his people like his family and in turn, his people takes care of the coffee well which results in the high quality that we receive year after year.

Roast Profile

Medium Roast

Roaster's note: This coffee won Silver Medal in the Espresso (single-origin) category of the Australian International Coffee Awards 2020. We are certainly surprised and happy that an Asian coffee could be recognized on an international platform. This is our sweetest tasting coffee among what we have. Not for the faint-hearted as coffee drinkers who are not used to acidity in your coffee may describe this as “sour”.
