[email protected] Myanmar travel update for day 2

.@TylerZimmer Myanmar travel update for day 2

From there we drive about 5 miles to visit our first farm of the trip, Shwe Pu Zun. As we drive up, we see very tall, skinny, evergreen like trees planted in between the rows of coffee. The trees are extremely shaded. We found out later that one reason the trees are so heavy is to keep the temperature of the farm more even since they have threat of frost in this area. They had a small wet mill where all the coffee is washed, some of demucilaged and some is pulped and goes through a 24 hour dry ferment before finishing the washing process. Shwe Pu Zun is about 100 acres planted in 2000-2002. It is mostly planted with Catimor, S795, and SL34. There are probably a few other varieties mixed in, but they are for the most part sorted when picked and processed. Their annual production was about 100,000 pounds grown at about 1050 meters above sea level.
