Starbucks Coffee Company has introduced its first Starbucks single-origin Yunnan coffee in China.

In 2012 Starbucks opened its Yunnan Farmer Support Center in Pu’er. The goal was simple: help farmers in Yunnan improve the quality of their coffee, while establishing C.A.F.E. (Coffee and Farm Equity) Practices to help ensure socially and environmentally responsible coffee production.

Available for a limited period across all Starbucks retail locations in Mainland China, the new Starbucks single-origin Yunnan coffee is a tribute to four years of collaboration between the Starbucks China Farmer Support Center and local coffee farmers in Pu’er, Yunnan province.

The new single-origin coffee is made of 100% arabica coffee and is a step towards completing the Starbucks China supply-chain.

“The Starbucks Yunnan Coffee Project is about creating a positive impact on local coffee farming communities.”
