Roast Level: Light
Region: Bolaven Plateau
From the Roaster:
This co-op was started in 2007 with French aid to help farmers create a way to reach higher-paying export markets. Through Cooperative Coffees (the buying group we helped start), Bongo is among the first North American buyers of this coffee.
Located in Southeast Asia, Laos' Bolaven Plateau offers varying micro-climates where this specialty coffee is grown and hand-picked at 3,300 feet.
The taste is delicate yet still earthy with notes of citrus, salted milk chocolate and toasted marshmallow.
I have been a subscriber since their launch, having been introduced to Better Grounds at a coffee festival. I have enjoyed every monthly selection so far! Their service is a great choice for anyone who, like me, wants easier access great quality coffee and anyone who might feel overwhelmed trying to look into the sourcing bonafides of different brands. I appreciate that they do this work for their clients, and also support different roasters who are doing good work.
