Coffee from Laos

My hubbie brought home a bag of coffee grown in southern Laos this morning (bought at Trader Joe's).  It was the sample coffee this morning and he'd liked it. 
We had a remarkable trip to central and northern Lao back around 2004, not long after it had been opened up to foreign tourists.
Coffee from Lao, I asked?  
Amazing, but apparently coffee is now a successful agricultural crop in Southern Lao (where we didn't visit).

And googling "Bolaven Plateau coffee" brought up quite a few interesting sites with more information, including this piece from CNN:

We haven't been back to Asia for awhile, but it's a great part of the world, with a wonderful vegetable gardening culture (as well as a long and diverse history, too).

I enjoy hearing from fellow nature lovers and gardeners. Let me know your thoughts.
