Available: 1000g only. Myanmar is seldom associated with speciality coffee. Avant garde growing regions offer something unique and this origin does not disappoint. A lip-smaking citrus berry compote melds with a vanilla backbone.
Ywangan Lot A is a combination of daily lots grown by Danu smallholder farmers in the Ywangan area of Southern Shan state. The main variety grown here is Red Catuai, intercropping with other crops such as avocado, jackfruit, papaya and shady macadamia trees. Ywangan used to be a significant opium producing region. Concerted efforts have been made over the past 10 years to replace poppies with coffee, providing farmers with a consistent and reliable source of income.
Both of our Ywangan washed lots are excellent examples of consistently well-processed, clean and balanced coffees. Ywangan Lot A has bright acidity and a refined fruitiness that may suit a lighter roast and drinking as a pour over or drip.
