Blue Pond Coffee
Blue Pond Coffee consists of the best of the beans from Genius Coffee and is sold only as whole beans.
Genius coffee originates in Taunggyi district, southern Shan State, where the year-round cool climate and sloping hills at an average altitude of 4000 feet (1220m) provide the ideal location for growing Arabica beans.
Genius coffee works with local farmers and Danu hill tribal families, who live in the area and depend on growing seasonal crops.
“By growing coffee, we can create a green and pleasant environment under the shade trees. Both the shade trees and the coffee trees provide income. The decayed leaves from the shade trees provide the best fertiliser for the coffee trees. That’s why I trust in the quality of my coffee. I don’t want to cultivate large plantations that damage the soil, but in small plots worked by a few farmers under shady trees,” said Ko Ngwe Tun (founder of Genius Coffee).
Through this Genius also educates farmers in minimising deforestation and encourages the use of shade trees to help preserve the ecosystem.
Now that is Genius!
Blue Pond Specialty Coffee comes only as whole bean in 320g packets.
