About This Coffee
For many, Myanmar evokes steamy tropical coastlines, but this Southeast Asian country contains multitudes—including the remote mountain ranges of Shan State, where coffee has thrived for centuries. The third in a series of releases from a region that's currently shattering industry paradigms, this sustainably processed blend underscores the most remarkable components of a terroir that is unique in all the world.
You’ll find pairs of shwe chinthe—Burmese for "golden lion”—standing guard over Buddhist pagodas and monasteries all over Myanmar. It was with deep intention that we chose to name our Burmese blends after these mythic creatures, to represent our intention to create space for the people of Southern Shan State, and to validate their efforts as devout stewards of coffee, the land, and each other.
- 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.
- A cupping spoon and a soapstone hippo
are two things our Green Coffee Buyer, Charlie, takes with him when he's sourcing our coffees.
