Based in London, Indochina Coffee works directly with growers in South East Asia to offer its beans to roasters in the UK and Europe.

Shirani, co-founder of Indochina Coffee, is of a Filipino father and a Sri Lankan mother. This inspired her to delve into coffee production in Asia, which led her to become a Q Grader. We met her at the last "in person" edition of the London Coffee Festival. From this meeting a new world opened up to us. New origins to share with you!

    One of the best espressos I've had this year. A trip to Myanmar and back in a single sip. Very smooth with a lot of natural sweetness and insane complexity. Starts right off with a burst of red fruit, then a really deep and complex sweetness with some molasses character in addition to the usual espresso taste notes. A very nice crema and overall mouthfeel.

    This espresso has an acidity profile comparable to great wines with softened tannins. Huge props to Osorio for even attempting a single-origin Myanmar espresso - it's my first one and all I have to say is wow!

More Details

Roast Level: Light Medium
A Light Medium Roast coffee, sometimes referred to as a "City Roast" or "American Roast," lies between a light and medium roast. This roast level strikes a balance by preserving the coffee bean's unique characteristics while allowing for a moderate development of body and flavor. The beans have a medium brown color, exhibiting a slight sheen of oils, providing a more balanced and nuanced flavor profile. A Light Medium Roast typically highlights the coffee's inherent fruity, floral, or citrus notes, while also providing some of the deeper, richer flavors associated with medium roasts.
Bean Source Country: Myanmar
Myanmar's coffee growing centers around Shan State, where Arabica thrives at higher altitudes. Formerly known as Burma, coffee production in Myanmar faces many challenges. Still, the small specialty lots with mild acidity, and earthy and wine-like characteristics are often well-worth the trouble.
Bean Source Region: Shan State
Grown in the Shan mountains of Myanmar, the combination of the favorable climate, rich volcanic soil, and altitude results in coffee beans with distinct characteristics, often featuring notes of floral aromas, vibrant acidity, and a smooth, well-rounded body. Shan State is considered a rising star in the specialty coffee world.
Espresso is a concentrated coffee beverage brewed by forcing hot water through finely-ground coffee beans under high pressure. It is characterized by its rich flavor and distinctive crema—the creamy layer that forms on top of the extracted process. When evaluating espresso, coffee experts often focus on key tasting characteristics such as aroma, flavor, body, and aftertaste. Aroma refers to the fragrant smells released during brewing, while flavor encompasses the coffee's overall taste profile, including notes of sweetness, bitterness, acidity, and richness. Body refers to the coffee's texture or mouthfeel, with descriptors like full-bodied, medium-bodied, or light-bodied. Aftertaste, or the finish, pertains to the lingering flavors and sensations experienced after swallowing the coffee. A well-prepared espresso is prized for its balance and complexity, combining these sensory attributes into a harmonious whole.
