description

The criteria for Anthracite was a juicy fruity NATURAL Espresso full of flavour you wouldn't necessarily associate with coffee and we believe we have managed to achieve this.

Anthracites unique profile received commendation from the Guild of Fine Food with a 3 star Great Taste Award.

region: YWANGAN, SOUTHERN SHAN ESTATE

Ywangan coffee comes from THE Mandalay Coffee Group and consists of combined daily lots grown by predominantly Danu (and some Pa-O) hill-tribe smallholder farmers in the remote mountainous area of Ywangan in Southern Shan state, Myanmar. MCG was formed in 2014 and is owned entirely by citizens of Myanmar. It works with these smallholders, providing support as well as processing the coffee and bringing it to market.

Within 48 hours of picking, the hand sorted cherry is collected in trucks and transported to MCG’s processing mill in Pyin Oo Lwin, about 5 hours’ drive away. MCG has around 100 raised drying beds, plus an experimental greenhouse / parabolic dryer. Drying pods are always moved at least once each hour during the day, then covered at night after the pods have darkened and wrinkled. Coffee is then hulled, sized, and sorted in a Pinhalense dry mill and Satake optical sorter.
