The Lady is a processing facility created in 2018 by two leading lights of the Myanmar speciality scene: Thi Ha Gyawalie and Su Nandar Linn. Both are responsible for running their separate family farms but have joined forces with The Lady to support and champion the efforts of farmers in Ywangan region, with its limited-edition lots produced exclusively by women. Su Nandar Linn’s family owns Shwe Ywar Ngan Coffee, a farm, processor, and roaster in Ywangan, Shan State. Her father, Win Aung Kyaw, has been in the coffee business since 1975, and played an instrumental role in the development of Myanmar’s coffee industry, disseminating coffee cultivars and new coffee production technologies. A certified Q grader and Q processor, Su Nandar Linn continues this commitment to developing the country’s speciality industry through The Lady. Thi Ha runs his family’s coffee estate Ruby Hills, based in Mogok. A Certified Q Grader and Processing Professional (CQI), Thi Ha is also a board member of the Myanmar Coffee Association, a non-profit trade association working to increase the prosperity of all sectors of the country’s coffee industry. Shirani, directo of Indochina importer, spent time with Thi Ha and Su Nandar in January 2020, cupping their early washed type samples and seeing the first cherries for this coffee being put into the fermentation tanks. Despite the significant challenges of the past year, Indochina continue to work on building a close producer-importer relationship with them and they are very happy to be bringing this coffee to the UK for a second year. Myanmar, also called Burma, is located in the western portion of mainland Southeast Asia. In 1989 the country’s official English name, which it had held since 1885, was changed from the Union of Burma to the Union of Myanmar; in the Burmese language the country has been known as Myanma (more precisely, Mranma Prañ) since the 13th century.
