About Cloud Picker Coffee
Established in 2013 by Frank Kavanagh & Peter Sztal. Having worked in graphic design and corporate banking, Cloud Picker Coffee leapt and opened up its own coffee roastery. Their coffee isn’t just roasted in Dublin, it’s chosen for its personality which means they go beyond the usual places to find it.
The name ‘Cloud Picker’ came from their trip to Northern Thailand where they visited a coffee farm in the Doi Chang area on the Thai / Burma border and where they went up through the clouds to see the coffee pickers! Thailand wasn’t known for it’s speciality coffee back then so it’s interesting to see how far it’s journeyed since.
About this coffee
“The Banka from the Yunnan Province comfortably clears this bar: it is one of our favourite naturals we have tried this year. At the moment, China’s speciality cultivation is almost exclusively focused in this province and the farm’s owners, Yunnan Coffee Traders, have been exporting since 2013.
There are particular challenges confronted by Yunnan farmers: the processing infrastructure is largely out of date and the region struggles with regular drought. The domestic market is also surprisingly small. China is a nation of tea drinkers with each citizen consuming an average of one cup of coffee a year.
At Banka, named after two adjacent villages, Banka Yi and Banka Er, the cherries are run through an optical colour sorter before two days of fermentation and drying on raised beds. The Catimor grown here, a quick-growing variety, mitigates the cool Chinese nights which slow down cherry production. This variety also protects against coffee leaf rust, a common difficulty for Chinese farmers.”
