Planting and Varieties of Chinese Coffee Beans
Almost all domestic coffee comes from Yunnan, accounting for 98% of production. The main regions within Yunnan for coffee production are Baoshan, Dehong, and Menglian in Pu’er. Pu’er alone accounts for 60% of the country’s total production. Other provinces where coffee is grown include Fujian and Hainan.
Fujian and Hainan mainly grow robusta, while Yunnan grows arabica, with catimor (a caturra-Timor hybrid) as the varietal of choice.
Growing Regions of Chinese Coffee Beans
We’re only just starting to pay attention to China as a producing country, but just like other origins there are variations within the different regions and sub-regions.
The main growing regions in China are Yunnan, Fujian, and Hainan Island. Fujian and Hainan Island are known for growing Robusta, and only account for about 5% of the country’s total production.
The extremely mountainous Pu’er Province – known globally for its fermented teas – is quickly blooming into the coffee-producing capital of China. This region, which is larger than the country of Ecuador, produces nearly half of the country’s total production according to Kubota.
