The main coffee growing region in Laos is the high elevation Bolaven Plateau, which has volcanic red earth soils in which the coffee plants thrive.
Tasting notes include cigar tobacco and herbs. This coffee is grown at an elevation of 3,300 feet just south of the Salavan region border in a field at the top end of a waterfall. Coffee from Laos is preferred over the similar Sumatran coffees because its flavor is consistent from one harvest to the next, bringing the same unique flavor year round only found in this country. Bordering countries around Laos include Thailand, Vietnam, China, Mynamar and Cambodia.
