A Single Origin Coffee from Myanmar

Emerging Asian origins have a special place in the Climpson & Sons range with our team working closely with import friends, Indochina Coffee, to grow and promote these coffees. As their supply chain has grown we have seen the quality and traceability improve so dramatically that we are now able to offer a women-led microlot project utilising an experimental processing method. A huge step forward for a country that has been exporting specialty coffee for less than a decade.

The Story

This coffee, from the Nwar Ban Gyi village, is the brainchild of two pioneering women seeking to promote and support local female farmers. Having built a processing station, dubbed ‘The Lady’, there are now 51 local women contributing their coffee cherries within 18 hours of picking. Keen to push beyond the boundaries and perception of standard washed coffees these cherries are instead placed in sealed fermentation tanks for a 48 hour carbonic maceration. Following this they are pulped, to separate beans from their fruit, and dried with a sticky layer of mucilage in-tact. These unique efforts add a layer of complexity and intrigue to the resulting coffee with sweet tasting notes of pecan, apple and fig sure to liven up your morning filter brew.

Our ambition is to continue sourcing, roasting and crafting the finest coffees from the heart of East London.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What date will my coffee be roasted?

    We aim to ship our coffee as fresh as possible, however you may receive coffee roasted up to 7 days prior to the shipping date.

  • What grind type should I choose?

    We offer multiple grind options from Cafetiere to Espresso and everything between. Our domestic espresso grind is slightly coarser and is perfect for home espresso machines, such as DeLonghi or Sage whereas the commercial espresso grind is better suited to commercial machines like La Marzocco or Sanremo. If you’re not sure what grind to choose please get in touch with our team at admin@climpsonandsons to see how they can help. Remember, pre-ground coffee is not an exact science and is only one of many brewing variables. For better brewing, why not take a look at one of our brew guides here https://climpsonandsons.com/blogs/brew-guides.

  • Can I order 1kg of coffee?

    This is not something we currently offer but why not consider helping us reduce packaging by ordering a 2kg bag instead? Wholebean coffee has a longer shelf life than you might think, up to 3 months!
