Myanmar Filter - Hopong Long Hay

Myanmar Filter - Hopong Long Hay

from 11.00

Tropical fruit, fried banana, juicy

Fed up with secretly producing opium for druglords while being prosecuted by authorities on the one hand, and selling poorly processed coffee to brokers and middlemen on the other, the Hopong farmers took a major leap of faith and fully embraced specialty coffee to become truly independent. Incredibly, they learned through social media that neighbouring communities were producing specialty sundried natural coffee with help from Winrock, an NGO. With loads of commitment and inquisitiveness, they managed to learn from these other communities how to elevate quality, secure better incomes and gain visibility in the international specialty coffee market - all with hardly any outside funding or training. 

These beans are perfectly selected with absolutely no defects, due to the many hands on deck at the farm carefully selecting each cherry by hand.
