Unique coffee from the land of tea producers
Myanmar, better known as former Burma, is a very young coffee-growing area with very little coffee production. Nevertheless, first-class Arabica varieties such as the Hopong Arabica S-795, Catimor and Catuai are grown here. The demand for these specialty coffees is correspondingly high. The coffee is grown by small farmers and their families at an altitude of 1100-1600m and then picked by hand. After 3 weeks of sun drying, the washed coffee is prepared for export. The majority of the harvests are secured by neighboring Asian countries and the USA. We have tried for a long time to get this specialty from the golden triangle on the coffee market, but the small quantities were always sold immediately.
It was only through contacting a Dutch specialty retailer that we were finally able to secure a batch and are now pleased to be able to offer you this extraordinary coffee.
The coffee has a full-bodied, clear cup profile with an aftertaste of caramel and marzipan notes. It has a low acidity and due to the medium roast there are also fruity nuances. We recommend the classic filter coffee machine or hand infusion, where the coffee can best develop its complex aroma. Our Hopong can also be used as a cafe crema in a fully automatic machine, where it then offers a very tasty latte with a dash of real cream.
