In 2017 our head roaster took a trip to Northern Thailand to visit the coffee farm where our Thai coffee comes form. She met with the farmers, and saw the whole process of coffee growing, drying and processing.
Our Thai coffee is from Doi Pangkhon and is a fully washed catimor, caturra grown at 1450m. Ori discovered the Thai coffee through a customer who was studying for a PhD in international relations at Oxford, who in his spare time visits Thailand to help coffee farmers. A relatively new industry to Thailand, coffee farming was established by the Thai government in the early 80s as an incentive to rid the Golden Triangle of its notorious drug trade and provided opium farmers with coffee as a replacement crop.
