Su Su Aung grew up in Ywangan, and got her start in coffee as a broker in the local market. She originally sold coffee to Chinese brokers at low prices, but she was interested in improving the quality of the coffee she bought, so she could pay growers more for cherry. In 2015, she participated in the Winrock/CQI project, and learned how to produce high quality naturals. Motivated by the potential of better coffee as a means to strengthening her community, Su Su Aung organized groups of women who were producing coffee, and shared her new knowledge with them. Out of this effort grew Su Su Aung’s milling and export company, Amayar – a name that means noble lady and is famed for wisdom.
