Laos Coffee Overview

Coffee production in Laos began in 1915 when French colonists experimented with planting coffee all around the country. They found the Bolaven Plateau in Paksong, located on the southern tip of Laos near Cambodia, to be the best region for production.

Robusta is the chief coffee plant grown in Laos, but here it’s grown at higher elevations normally reserved for Arabica. The Laotian government has been working with farmers for the last 20 years to plant more Arabica plants because Arabica sells for a higher price on the global market.
