Discover how Sinouk pioneered the development of the Lao Coffee sector
and today continuously contributes to its expansion


Everything started in 1994 when Sinouk discovered the region of the Bolavens Plateau and its coffee.

Starting as a trader and exporter, he acquired the knowledge of green beans processing and world market mechanisms. He developed in parallel his own coffee plantation, located at 82 km from Pakse on a plot gathering the best conditions to grow coffee :

1000m high above sea level, cool temperature, virgin volcanic forest soil. This became the ideal place to start his coffee production :

The best produced green beans, combined with the skills of our master roaster enable to offer the finest gourmet coffee, appreciated by the most requiring connoisseurs, and served by numerous hotels and restaurants in Laos.
