About This Coffee
As soon as we tasted this natural-processed coffee grown by farmers in southern Shan State, we were certain that the world’s newest specialty coffee origin was emerging before our eyes. Myanmar’s coffee traditions are as old as Latin America’s, but decades of political unrest and civil war have stymied economic growth. When the country began opening up to democratization a few years ago, farming communities began to work with organizations like Coffee Quality Project, revealing, quite unexpectedly, coffee that’s as groundbreaking as it is delicious.

Shwe Chinthe combines harvests from four different communities to make a gently fruited coffee that’s well suited for everyday drinking. A coffee like this one, which is named for the golden lions who stand guard over pagodas across Myanmar, reminds us of why we’re in this game at all: to forge the tenuous connections between handcrafted coffee and its farmers, without whom such beauty simply could not exist.
  • Our coffees go through a rigorous selection and quality-testing process, and we only share the coffees that have most captured our imaginations.
  • Each bag of Myanmar Shan State Shwe Chinthe whole beans is shipped to you within 24 hours of roasting from our Oakland roastery.
