What do the name and brand on the coffee bag represent respectively?


Place name of national famous products: it indicates the production area of coffee. For example, "Ethiopia Harare" indicates that the product is produced in Harare, Ethiopia. It should be noted here that the quality of coffee varies with the same country name but different regions and years, and the taste of coffee cannot be guaranteed to be consistent.


Port of export: indicates the port of export of coffee. Coffee of the same origin and brand shall be delivered at the same export port. For example, "Brazil Santos" indicates that the goods are shipped from Santos port. But "MOGA" is an exception, because more than one port is named after "MOGA". For example, "MOGA mandarin" and "haralmoga".

When exporting Arabian and Robusta coffee, the original species name shall be indicated under the country name. For example, "Cameroon Arab", "Uganda robusta", etc.

The standards set by each country are as follows:


  • Water wash / nonwater wash


  • Flat bean/round bean


  • Filter


The size of beans has little to do with their quality. It mainly depends on whether the size of raw beans is neat and consistent.


  • Classification by the altitude of origin


Generally, the coffee beans produced in high-altitude areas are of better quality than those produced in low-altitude areas. With the handling fee, the price is higher.


  • Quality standard


According to the type and quantity of substandard beans mixed in a certain amount of samples, the number of insufficient points is converted to reflect the quality of coffee beans. Brazil, Ethiopia, Cuba, and other countries have established the benchmark for the number of points owned. Of course, the smaller the number of points owed, the better the quality of coffee.
