Coffee was introduced to the Yunnan province in the late 19th century by a French missionary, but it wasn’t until as recently as 1988 when the Chinese government, the World Bank, and the United Nations Development Programme jointly initiated a program to kickstart coffee as a crop in the region. In 2013, Yunnan Coffee Traders became the regions first dedicated specialty coffee exporter. Most of the coffee grown in Yunnan is Catimor, a Caturra/Timor hybrid.
Banka farm and washing station is based in Menglian Dai, Lahu and Va Autonomous County in Yunnan and is named after the two adjacent villages, Banka Yi and Banka Er. Banka mill is managed by Yunnan Coffee Traders.
