Story of Myanmar Hopong Long Hay Coffee

This coffee is only available in wholebeans but as either an espresso or filter roast.

Fed up with having to secretly produce opium for drug-lords so having to balance prosecution by authorities on the one hand and then selling poorly processed coffee to brokers and middlemen on the other, the Hopong farmers decided enough was enough and took a major leap of faith by fully embracing specialty coffee to become truly independent. Incredibly, they learned that neighbouring communities were producing specialty sun-dried natural coffee with help from Winrock, an Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO). With unwavering commitment and inquisitiveness, they learnt from these other communities how to elevate quality, secure better incomes and gain visibility in the international specialty coffee market, all with almost no outside funding or training. 

These beans are perfectly selected with absolutely no defects due to the number of workers at the farm that ensure each cherry can be carefully selected by hand.

To ensure you receive the freshest beans possible, Common Greens roast to order. Roasting usually takes place on Wednesdays, therefore your order will be dispatched within a week.
