Bolaven Plateau in the south of Laos, around 1,000 meters above sea level, forms a cool and damp microclimate that is ideal for coffee plantations, allowing Laos to produce some of the world’s most exquisite coffee. With the two main types of coffee, Robusta and Arabica, and organic farming increasingly popular on the plateau, Lao coffee will be able to satisfy a discerning coffee drinker, especially if the preference is for rich and strong coffee, with a growing variety of delicious coffees.
And where best to sample Lao coffee to find your personal favourite? At the 2nd Lao Coffee Festival from the 6th to 8th April 2018 at the Chao Anounvong Park, Vientiane, Lao P.D.R.
