Since 2015 we’ve been a small, dedicated part of the work carried out by Winrock, funded by USAID, and supported by the Coffee Quality Institute (CQI), to develop specialty coffee value chains and help develop coffees in Myanmar that can be brought to international markets.

The group’s work has introduced new production practices to smallholder farmers - many of whom are women in remote communities - who have quickly taken up the opportunity to improve the quality of their beans and get access to a new market for their products. The work of Winrock has been building since 2014 after the local community identified that they required assistance in this area, and is planned to continue as part of a long-term USAID project in the region.
