Travel Experience

Genius Coffee plantations grow in the mountains of Shan State at an average altitude of 4,000 feet (1,220 m). Genius Shan Highlands Coffee started processing and roasting coffee in late 2012. We have since opened a nursery for testing some of the finest varieties of Arabica from around the world and planted acres of hillside plantains. We also opened processing and roasting facilities and a dry mill. Our Coffee is growing and production is based in Ywar Ngan Township in Southern Shan State. Our roasting, distribution and cafe are located in Yangon. Genius is selling our coffee in the retail market, coffee shops, hotels, airport and at events.

Responsibility

Genius coffee's core business model is an ethos of social responsibility. We honor our famers and their families by supporting community development projects in the villages which produce our Genius Coffee. Our coffee growers are members of the Danu Hill Tribe. Their knowledge of their lands and their partnership with Genius benefit their people by bringing much-needed development to their villages.

Business Case

Genius coffee also contributes to supporting local education, healthcare and forestry efforts. By doing that, 10% of sales will be donating to education, social welfare and health to the Danu hill tribes who live in and around our plantations. We execute an ongoing crowdfunding program for people who what to own a small piece of the Genius mission, as well as personal investments in Genius franchises and cash investment as we scale up production and growth of our coffee and related value-added products.
