Sometimes it’s great to try new things which is exactly what happened to create our Gaia Mountain Dragon, Chinese speciality coffee at Just Gaia. We loved this from the first sip as a quick sample and never looked back.
The flavour is that of traditional coffee, but what you also get is something a bit special. Growing in the Yunnan region of China near tea leaves, really comes through in the taste.
Roasted to the slightly darker side of medium, you pick up the fruity flavours and an almost floral essence about it.
Mountain Dragon, Chinese Speciality Coffee Flavour
Our Mountain Dragon coffee gives you a fresh flavour coffee with a floral and fruity aftertaste, truly unique but maintains a great balance of coffee taste with something a bit special.
Packed with flavour, this works really nicely through a short milk espresso like a flat white or cortado. Also works beautifully as a filter coffee with a machine or french press.
This coffee is roasted at Bewley’s roastery in Huddersfield and uses ethically sourced beans.
Everything is roasted in small batches and to the freshest, we can get it for you, with us making regular orders for this to arrive in store at it’s best.
This coffee is roasted medium and retains some acidity once roasted, it is not best to be consumed within 5 days of roasting.
We grind this speciality coffee in store at Just Gaia, Halifax or provide this as beans to grind yourself at home.
As you likely know already, we are a plastic free shop and do everything we can to be sustainable with what we do. This extends to all our speciality coffee too.
If you purchase either 75g or 125g you will get one of our kraft paper tubes with your coffee. These are 100% plastic free and good for storage at home. Once you have one they are reusable, you can feel free to buy refills from us to the same quantities and reduce packaging we are wasting every day.
Try to avoid contact with water given they are paper but, for keeping your coffee (or tea!) they are excellent.
If you purchase 200g of coffee you can do so including a clip-lock tin worth £2.95 separately. These are metallic and lock closed, perfect for keeping your coffee and other uses around the kitchen and home too.
Refills will be provided in paper bags so you can refill your containers at home, they are not intended to be used for storage.

We were first interested in this coffee around the time of the Chineese New Year as a celebration of the culture, but with a coffee twist since it’s usually associated with Tea.
After trying the beautiful flavour, with a floral and fruity taste, I knew we needed to add this to our range right away. It tastes amazing as a short drink like a Flat White from the cafe. And works amazing as a filter coffee at home too.
