About Lao Coffee

Coffee has been grown in Lao P.D.R. for around 100 years. Today the crop generates income especially for smallholder farmers who are growing the major part of the coffee production. Hence, the coffee sector brings an important contribution to the wealth of Lao P.D.R. and to the government’s objective of poverty alleviation.


The high quality of Lao Arabica and Robusta coffees is gaining more and more popularity and Lao coffee is now exported to many countries in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
