History of coffee in Burma
Missionaries initiated coffee growing in Burma in 1885, as reported by the Agriculture Burma Office in 1940. Initially, in Mergui and Tavoy. Two coffee experiment farms were established by the Department of Forestry then, but these were terminated within a few years. Kayin State (Nancho area) also established coffee farms at the same time. Separately, Karen tribesmen developed and produced Robusta Coffee, which still continues to the present day.
Roman Catholic Missionaries introduced Arabica Coffee in 1930 to Southern and Northern Shan State and in Memyo. From 1930 to 1934 a large, 120-acre, Arabica Coffee plantation called 'Chaungwe,' was established at Northern Shan State. All of these areas still produce commercial Arabica Coffee till today.
