A Single Origin from Myanmar

Emerging Asian coffees have a special place in the Climpson & Sons range with our roasting team working closely with our friends at Indochina Coffee to provide development feedback over a number of years. 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 people 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.
