Burma Coffee Overview

Burma’s 15 million pounds of annual coffee production barely tips the scales globally, but the country is putting up some seriously impressive quality scores that are garnering international acclaim. It’s a recent development, too, as the first specialty coffees ever to become available in the Western world hit the markets in 2016.

These impressive coffees come from the Mya Ze Di region of Burma that isn’t tourist-friendly. In fact, the whole country has been tough for Western tourists to experience as the country only came out of political isolation in 2011.

However, economic development and democracy have bloomed, just like their new world-class coffees, painting a bright picture for the future of Burmese coffee.

About The Coffee Maven

I'm Bryan but most people know me as The Coffee Maven. I grew up outside Boston, Massachusetts and received my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Providence College. My first introduction to coffee was during my college days, when I used it as a source of caffeine to fuel late-night study sessions, but soon I became obsessed with the chemistry of coffee. How did changes to water temperature or contact time affect its taste? Why do beans from Africa taste fruity while beans from Indonesia taste spicy? I launched The Coffee Maven in February 2017 to explore these questions and help others brew their perfect cup. Welcome to my site, and thanks for reading!
