Here's more about the coffee, written by the importer, Atlas Coffee:

Su Su Aung grew up in Ywangan, and got her start in coffee as a broker in the local market. She originally sold coffee to Chinese brokers at low prices, but she was interested in improving the quality of the coffee she bought, so she could pay growers more for cherry. In 2015, she participated in the Winrock/CQI project, and learned how to produce high quality naturals.

Motivated by the potential of better coffee as a means to strengthen her community, Su Su Aung organized groups of women who were producing coffee, and shared her new knowledge with them. Out of this effort grew Su Su Aung’s milling and export company, Amayar – a name that means noble lady.

By 2018, Amayar had its own processing, milling operation and cupping lab, and had become a tremendous resource and source of pride for the Ywangan community. Su Su Aung prides herself on offering 10% of her profits to community efforts that include pre/post-natal training for young
mothers, and food safety courses for families. She is also very generous with advice and support to coffee farmers.

Su Su Aung understands the importance of honoring her buyer’s trust, and she is committed to producing the quality they need as efficiently as possible so that Amayar can continue to invest in her community. In 2018, Amayar did all the dry milling for community coffee in Southern Shan State, and has a new cupping lab. She is growing her dry mill, and will be producing yellow and black honey-process coffees in addition to natural and washed coffees.
