Green Grapes | Rose Apple | Bright Acidity
Roast profile: Medium 3/5
Region: Shan Estate
This particular lot is sourced from the Ywangan region in the Southern Shan State. In Ywangan, coffees come from mostly smallholder producers, with farms no larger than two or three hectares. This coffee is easy going on the palate where the coffee speaks for itself as a well-balanced cup with taste notes of green grape & rose apple highlighted with a bright acidity.
Coffee growing in Myanmar originated in 1885, however in recent years, coffee production has increased exponentially where the Northern Myanmar region has shown great potential in producing large quantities of high-quality Arabica coffee due to its high elevation, high-quality red soils and ample rainfall. They've also recently included the use of better production methods, improved coffee processing techniques and farmer training which has led to higher returns for farmers.
Best enjoyed as an espresso or a long black.
