Myanmar Pha Yar Gyi Kone Coffee

This coffee is available as wholebeans only.

Since Ancoats first sip of this coffee back in Autumn 2019, they have been looking forward to getting it in stock. It surprised them from the get-go with its fruity brightness and high sweetness. In the cup the coffee is impressively balanced and clean, with acidity that reminds them of kiwis, dried fruit and blackberry jam, followed by a lingering aftertaste of cocoa powder. But this wasn’t the only thing that got them excited - this is a coffee that tells a story of positive social impact.

Until recently the village of Pha Yar Gyi Kone, like many others in the Ywangan region of Myanmar, relied heavily on opium as their main cash crop. In 2018 the Shwe Taung Thu farmers’ co-operative was formed. Their aim is to continue the work of local and international aid organisations, who had been providing support and incentives for the many local smallholder farms to make the switch to high value specialty coffee as a source of income. The co-op is made up of representatives from the local coffee-growing communities who work together to improve agricultural practices, provide education, and invest back into their communities. Recently, this included donating some of their profits to the local school and investing in new drying tables. The rates of opium cultivation and other high-risk sources of livelihood are now decreasing in Myanmar, as the country’s economy evolves and more opportunities for legitimate income arise.

A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe

Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID brings, many are choosing to tighten the purse strings and are replacing luxuries with cheaper, more basic products.For more: Comunicaffe International
...However, whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a premium home-brewed coffee or tea is still less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Many have already taken the time to improve their brewing skills since the outbreak, and so now have the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home. If this isn't you, then there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our range of independents to support you in doing just that. Easy to find and it won’t cost you the earth for these to be delivered.
