Ywar Ngan, Myanmar Origin Trip

Join us on our upcoming trips for the unique experience of heading to origin during coffee harvest!


Visit Origin With Us - Ywar Ngan, Myanmar

Have you ever wondered about the origins of Coffee? Join us on our upcoming trips for the unique experience of heading to origin during coffee harvest! We’ve designed our origin class to focus on immersing our students into the culture at the coffee mill and farm.This is where coffee starts its journey and we’ve put together a 5 Day 4 Night immersion class (Introduction To Origin - Myanmar) for you to appreciate and learn about it. This year, in addition to the origin class, we'll also be offering SCA certifications that can be taken onsite. Where better to learn about coffee than at ground zero?If you’ve been thinking about attaining your SCA certifications, here's your chance to take your brew, sensory or green coffee classes together with our Origin class.


Read about our previous trips to Ywar Ngan. Origins Classes in Myanmar are organised in coordination with Genius Shan Highlands Coffee.
