ABOUT PA-O VILLAGES

The Fruit Hidden Behind The Leaf Is Back!

Co-Founded by Melanie Edwards, Behind The Leaf Coffee has been one of the few success stories to emerge from Myanmar. Their work with the local Pa-O people in the Shan State of Myanmar has meant that the fruits of their labour are now classed as speciality grade coffee, something almost unthinkable a few years ago.

A majority of the coffee processing and hand-sorting that has played a vital role in meeting the demands of their success, has been undertaken with the help of 50 or so women from the local village of Ta Ngo in the Pinlaung Township.

Employing the women from Ta Ngo has been a boon to BTL but the relationship is desperately needed by a lot of the women. Some are single mothers, others widowed, while the rest care for and maintain their households because their husbands have either left to search for better paying jobs or have just outright left the country because of job scarcity, leaving them to their own devices.
