Myanmar - The Lady

Thrilled to have this years fresh crop of the tasty Myanmar The Lady back into the roastery. Was a firm favourite last year and really excited to have it back again this year. This is one of 3 coffees from Myanmar that we have, the others coming out soon!

This lot is produced by a cooperartive made up of 51 female led farms and then processed by high experienced professionals to create this amazing and unique coffee! 


  • Producers + Mill:

The Lady is a processing facility created in 2018 by two leading lights of the Myanmar specialty scene: ThiHa Gyawalie and Su Nandar Linn. Both are responsible for running their separate family farms, but have joined forces with The Lady to support and champion the efforts of farmers in Ywangan region, with its limited edition lots produced exclusively by women.

Su Nandar Linn’s family owns Shwe Ywar Ngan Coffee, a farm, processor, and roaster in Ywangan, Shan State. Her father, Win Aung Kyaw, has been in the coffee business since 1975, and played an instrumental role in the development of Myanmar’s coffee industry, disseminating coffee cultivars and new coffee production technologies. A certified Q grader and Q processor, Su Nandar Linn continues this commitment to develop the country’s speciality industry through The Lady. Thi Ha runs his family’s coffee estate Ruby Hills, based in Mogok which is the other Myanmar lot we have secured.

A Certified Q Grader and Processing Professional (CQI), Thi Ha is also a board member of the Myanmar Coffee Association, a non-profit trade association working to increase the prosperity of all sectors of the country’s coffee industry.


  • Varieties:

Red Catuaí is a hybrid of Mundo Novo and Caturra, which was developed by Instituto Agronômico de Campinas (IAC) in 1949. Together with Yellow Catuai, it is a highly resistant cultivar suitable for growing in higher altitudes and windy areas. Both Catuais have very refined and clean acidity, has a rich yield and is well-known for this fact. 


  • Process:

The Cherries are collected from 51 women farmers from Nwar Ban Gyi village, Then the cherries are floated to remove underripe fruits / defects. Both dry and wet fermentation methods are utilised to create this coffee. The wet fermented coffee is sealed under water in closed tanks for a certain period of time till it gets to desired pH level. The dry fermented coffee is done the same way in enclosed tanks, to bring up the brix (sugar content) of the cherries to increase body and sweetness. The cherries from both fermentation methods are then carefully blended to create the optimum taste / sensory profile after this processing the coffees are dried for approximately 20-24 days on raised beds
