Ngu Shwe Li estate – Myanmar

Tasting notes

Grape — Spice notes — Chocolate

This microlot is a washed SL34 selection from the Ngu Shwe Li estate in Pyin Oo Lwin. It is one of the older coffee estates, starting activities in 1979. Owner mister Kyaw Sein first cultivated coffee, macadamia nuts and fruits on 40 hectares. At first, they cultivated only the S795 variety, which was developed and appreciated for its coffee leaf rust resistance. To improve the cup quality of his production, Kyaw Sein purchased an additional 50 hectares and planted it with the SL34 variety. He processes and batches lots of these varieties separately.
Ngu Shwe Li has its own processing infrastructure on-site. The estate produces both natural and washed coffees. The washed lots all undergo processing between 15 and 20 hours after picking. Cherry selection takes place first: through flotation, they remove floaters. Next, machines depulp the coffee. A mucilage removal machine lowers the need for intensive washing after fermentation. With little mucilage still sticking to the parchment, the coffee ferments for a couple of hours in concrete tanks. Finally, with a quick wash, the parchment is clean and ready for drying on the raised bed system. This usually takes up to 10 days, depending on the weather.
