Lunar New Year

The Year of the Dragon

Three Exceptional Coffees

For The Year of the Dragon, we're showcasing three coffees from China, Myanmar, and Timor-Leste, with artwork designed by WHOSMiNG. From January 29th, through to February 10th, join us as we celebrate the people and places that produce and champion incredible coffee, and brew, discover, and enjoy, from the comfort of your home brewing set up.

Looking to the future, while valuing heritage. Lunar New Year has always been a celebration close to Origin’s heart, with Director of Coffee, Freda Yuan, keen to highlight the incredible work of coffee producers in under-the-radar coffee producing countries across East and Southeast Asia.

An Extraordinary Trio

Discover three remarkable coffees from three incredible coffee-producing countries. Travel through taste. Explore China, Myanmar, and Timor-Leste’s complex history – and hopeful future – in speciality coffee. Discover the terroir, people, and the processes that make such extraordinary coffee possible.

Also, available in a convenient trio box, perfect for at-home coffee exploration or gifting.

Meet the Creator

With designs as playful as his identity, WHOSMiNG delights in letting his drawings do the talking. With a brand name that gives nothing away, the down-to-earth Taiwanese artist and illustrator works with sparse, simple lines, setting the scene and telling a story.

“I use very few lines for drawing, so every stroke counts; I spend a lot of time observing, before I begin. I translate these moments in life with simple lines infused with a touch of humour and warmth.” WHOSMiNG
