Myanmar • Moe Htet Estate
Kyaw Hlaing serves as the proprietor of the renowned Moe Htet Estate, also known as Sinoda. He manages this estate in collaboration with agronomist U Kyaw Wan He and his right-hand person, Aung Hleing Phyo. With extensive expertise garnered from years of work in government research departments and multinational corporations, Kyaw Hlaing’s farm has flourished and now spans approximately 200 acres dedicated to coffee cultivation.
The farm employs a workforce of one hundred pickers, including locals and individuals from as far as Bagan, on the opposite side of Mandalay. During the picking season, these pickers reside on the farm. Although some localized pesticide application is employed to combat stem borer infestations, the estate is actively progressing towards adopting full organic farming practices.
On occasions, this transition involves the grafting of coffee onto Robusta root systems. This technique allows for a distinct nutrient uptake and protection against various diseases without compromising the grafted plant’s integrity, knowledge Kyaw Hlaing acquired through his prior training and experience.
Furthermore, Aung Hleing Phyo plays a significant role by organizing monthly workshops on the farm, contributing to the local coffee community’s growth and development. These sessions feature a demonstration farm that showcases best practices and offers a deeper understanding of the farm’s unique circumstances. For instance, the Costa Rican Catimor variety yields 3kg per tree, while H528 and SL34 varieties produce 2.5kg per tree, boasting a distinctive buttery profile, especially at higher altitudes. This valuable information will steer the future direction of the farm as it undergoes renovations and expansions in due course.
