A coffee paradise, Bolaven Plateau located in the northeast of champasak Province of southern Laos, sits at the bottom of a crater from an enormous volcano which is thankfully, extinct. Since the majority of Lao’s geographic area comprises mountain ranges, highlands and rivers, this region has a cool climate and high levels of rainfall. Thus, the climate as well as ancient volcanic soil have provided nutrient-rich environmental conditions which are ideal for growing coffee. 

Coffee is typically grow at an altitude of between 1,000 to 1,300 metres above sea level. 65% of the coffee produced in Laos are Robusta while the rest are Arabica like Geisha and Typica. They go through natural-processes and wash-processes. Notable cupping notes for the Geisha are chocolatey, jasmine and blackberries.

Laos is a country where more locals are turning away from the opium business to coffee crops. Although currently, the majority of Laotian coffee cultivation is predominantly the lower grade Robusta coffee beans, Arabica coffee is increasingly becoming popular and is showing great growth potential for the future.

The area has a fairly cool climate and high levels of rainfall. Mountainous regions like this are excellent for growing coffee because of their altitude. Here, the coffee grows at between 1,000 and 1,300 meters. For the coffee farmers of Laos, this area is a utopia for the production of their caffeinated crop.

The first coffee plants were brought to Laos in the early 1900s by French colonists. They experimented with growing coffee in the cooler norther region of the country before setting their sights on the Bolevan Plateau, which has fertile volcanic soil and a higher altitude that made it ideal for growing beans.

The Bolaven Plateau, where coffee was first planted in Laos during the French colonial times, is the primary region of production for Laos. Several species were planted including Arabica, Robusta, and Liberica.

Leinage Description

Geisha was first discovered in the Geisha village in Ethiopia in 1931. It has since been imported to grow in other Central American countries like Panama, Costa Rica etc. It won the “Best of Panama” coffee tasting competition in 2004 due to its vibrant, complex and unique flavour profile. Although Geisha is highly resistant to the “Coffee Leaf Rust” disease, it is a difficult variety to grow. The plants have low yield and require high maintenance.

Geisha is an incredibly popular and all-rounded varietal which has won numerous coffee tasting awards. This exquisite coffee is highly sought after and has become the most expensive coffee in the world; it carried a hefty price tag of $1029 per pound in 2019 (record-breaking).
