The Pa-O tribe is one of the ethnic tribes of the Shan State in Myanmar. Legend has it that the Pa-O are descendants of a dragon and an alchemist named Zawgyi. Traditionally isolated from the outside world, they have their own language and traditions, like many other tribes in Myanmar.
In recent years, Behind The Leaf Coffee was started to educate the Pa-O people on growing and processing specialty coffee. All these helped to improve the tribe's standard of living, allowing them to earn a fair wage. During the harvest season, coffees are picked and processed on the same day to ensure freshness, and their drive for quality has seen their coffee receiving a cup score between 85-87 points in recent competitions.
