Southeast Asian coffee

I have been craving coffee from Laos and I'm so happy I found it here. This was the only place I found that sells it and the taste did not disappoint. Have not had the chance to make iced coffee with it yet, but it makes for a punchy espresso. Victoria

My favorite coffee

I enjoyed my first cup of Laotian coffee while traveling in the Bolavan plateau. What a treat to find Lao coffee from Sweetwater! Every time I brew it, it brings me back to the first cup of extra smooth, perfectly balanced coffee from that trip long ago. It's also consistently a favorite when served to friends and family, who will ask me what brand it is if I don't tell them beforehand. I'm lucky enough to live in Jacksonville, FL and purchase it locally, but I order online to send it as birthday and holiday gifts as well. EMM

Laos Bolaven Plateau.

Perfect acidity, body, & aroma. Would like to try it at a slightly darker roast, i.e., med-dark. Kenneth

Surprise Find!

I received this coffee as a mystery bag during a promotion last month and loved it so much I bought a bag. It's now part of my regular rotation. Extremely fragrant, and very balanced- perfect for a person like me who drinks it by the pot. Not too acidic and just the right intensity. Try it, if just for the wonderful way it smells in the morning when brewing :) Elise
