YuLan is a farm located in the region of Yunnan, one of the main coffee producing regions of China. Yalan Li, its owner, started to work in the coffee industry in 1992, when she joined a company and learnt how to cultivate seedlings. She soon struck out on her own and began to cultivate and sell seedlings and, with the profits, started her own farm and dry and wet mill.
Some years later, a severe frost destroyed her farm. Yalan Li moved her family back to her family village, where she started a new farm, YuLan, which still operates today, and started to produce high-quality coffees to garner higher prices for her lots.

Cherry is handpicked and ripe, red cherry is processed at YuLan’s wet mill. Coffee is fermented for 15 days and then moved to raised beds to dry, being raked frequently to ensure even drying. After 5 days, cherries are moved to mechanical dryers and dried slowly until reaching appropriate humidity levels. Coffee is stored at DiFan’s dry mill in Pu’er for a month before being hulled and prepared for export.
