PA-O: Myanmar Anaerobic Natural

Sale price Price $19.00 Regular price $0.00 Unit price  per 

Our first coffee from Myanmar comes from the scenic, verdant, mountainous Pa-O Villages of this rare origin. Produced by Behind the Leaf, this beautiful anaerobic natural processed coffee is juicy, smooth and bright. 

The varietal is approximately 80% red catuai and the rest mixed local varieties. In the cup, you can expect a beautiful balance of fruits and a milk chocolate smoothness that lingers.

Tasting Notes: Strawberry, Mangosteen, Milk Chocolate, Red Apple

Cup score: 87.75 ☕ 

Behind the Leaf was started by Melaine Edwards with the goal to create sustainable water systems for the indigenous groups of Myanmar. They have successfully built effective, inexpensive ways to provide clean drinking water to nearby villages in Myanmar.


Behind the Leaf Coffee exists to give opportunity to the Pa-O people of Myanmar through agricultural education and fair wage. They teach coffee management to independent coffee farmers with anything from one to one hundred trees in their care and provide a market for their coffee cherries by introducing their coffee to the world.

Since starting this experiment in 2016, they have won numerous awards with their Pa-O coffee, but what they are most proud of is the community that has formed around this project.
