Sommeliers say that coffee has three flavors: bitter, sour and fragrant.

In China, Fei, a successful young manager, is getting married with his boss’ daughter and everything seems to be perfect until he moves for work back to the Yunnan region, his birthplace and the center of coffee production in China.
