The Bolaven Plateau, in southern Laos, is rich in agriculture, with coffee being only one of the many crops cultivated there. Coffee started being grown on the Plateau under French rule in the early 1900’s and high quality production lasted until the region was devastated by civil wars from 1950 - 1975. With support and help from the French government the Bolaven Plateau Coffee Producers Cooperative (CPC) was formed in 2007 and now has nearly 2000 grower members. This resurgence of high quality production is enhanced by a dedicated and hardworking team at the CPC who address the needs of not just the buyers and quality of coffee, but also the growers’ quality of life.
We at The Coffee Exchange are lucky to be one of the very few roasters in North America bringing this Fair Trade Organic coffee to you as a medium-dark Vienna roast.
