Roaster notes: - "A delicous coffee - bursting with dark fruity notes, when we first tasted this coffee we knew we had to share it with you all. This is our first black honey process coffee and it has been a dream to work out how to best roast it"

Producer:The  Black Honey is from five Pa-O villages combined, all the villages are in Pinlaung Township. The village names are Wa Lee, Wa Ran, Pein Nay Gone, Pingalar and Ta Ngo and together they are called 'behind the leaf'.  

 

The coffee is dried to 10-12% moisture and rested at least one month in airtight bags as dried cherry or in parchment and then milled at our dry mill and handsorted.  Behind the Leaf uses low-cost, reproducible technologies in the areas of water, sanitation, agriculture and building. 

 

“The Fruit Hidden behind the Leaf” is the motto our local team has chosen for the coffee project in this previously blacklisted, mountainous area among the Pa-O people.  The motto conveys different messages.  A meaning relating directly to the coffee farmer is the coffee fruit that is sometimes hidden by the leaves has time to develop and ripen on the tree, lending it to be a specialty coffee, a treasure.  There was a time that the Pa-O had to smuggle their coffee out to buyers.  The price was good but it was a risk.  Then the price for coffee went down and middlemen made all the money, so the farmers cut down their trees.  They had turned back the leaf to show that the coffee remnant among the Pa-O hills is specialty-grade and deserves a higher price.  And finally another meaning of “The Fruit Hidden behind the Leaf” is direct at the Pa-O people themselves.  Due to wars and conflicts, the Pa-O escaped to the mountains years ago.  In recent years they have collectively  sought development and education for their children.  The majority of the 1 million Pa-O are agriculturalists.  The leaf has been turned back and now not only the other groups in Myanmar are taking notice of the Pa-O but people around the world see them as a beautiful, talented, hard-working people.
