The Lao Coffee Story
Coffee in Laos is cultivated almost exclusively on the Bolaven Plateau in Champasak Province in the southern part of the country. The plateau, with ample rainfall, cool temperatures and rich volcanic soil, reaches an elevation of over 1300 meters at 15 degrees latitude - perfect conditions for growing world class coffee. The Arabica coffee beans from the plateau are known for their medium body and a combination of mild citrus and floral tones.
Coffee Facts - From the Tree to the Cup
The Coffee Tree Coffee trees start in a nursery where they are grown under shade and transplanted in the field after about a year. Coffee on the plateau is usually planted with a cover of shade trees. This keeps the coffee trees from over-producing and depleting the soil of nutrients, and adds balance to the farm by improving bird and insect life.
In Laos, often the coffee has been planted in the jungle using the natural tree canopy for shade - a truly natural growing method! It usually takes a coffee tree 5 years to reach maturity when it can produce its maximum harvest and it continues to produce at this level for the following 5 to 6 years.
... just had my first cup. it's nice, well balanced, not too strong which is good for me because i drink several cups in the morning. i plan to gift the smaller bags to friends i used to give mine too. it was a great deal and very quick. i look forward to trying some of the others. thanks..
