This single-varietal (Typica), carbonic maceration natural lot is from Phetlamka farm on the Bolavens plateau in southern Laos. Once known as the ‘Kingdom of a Million Elephants’, the average altitude in Laos is over 700masl but rises to a consistent 1,350masl on the plateau.

The potential for expanding production of specialty coffee in Laos is so great that our importing partner Olam is growing coffee on 1,300 hectares of land over 4 estates in the rich volcanic soils at the heart of the Bolaven Plateau with plans to expand to 2,000 hectares. Numerous rivers and creeks of every size cross the plateau heading west and eventually to the Mekong river.

The Laos estates are part of the International Multi-location Variety Trial led by World Coffee Research (WCR). In this project, 35 Varieties of coffee are collected from around the world and then planted in over 60 test plots in 23 countries. This will result in widespread production and quality increases in as little as 5 years, and contribute to more sustainable farmer livelihoods and a stronger coffee sector.
