Doi Chaang Coffee Co
The Doi Chaang coffee story started in 1983 in the Doi Chaang (literally meaning Elephant Mountain) province in the mountainous region of northern Thailand, where the altitude ranges between 1200-1600 metres above sea level. Under the leadership of Piko Saedoo, the head of the Akha tribe’s largest and most prominent family, farmers converted form producing opium to coffee. The production of coffee grew, and with the help of a Canadian businessman, the Doi Chaang Coffee Company formed to market and supply its fairtrade beans around the world.
Delicately rich, crisply sweet-toned. Orange-like citrus, fresh-cut fir, dark chocolate, a hint of baking spice in aroma and cup. Balanced acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Chocolate persists in a rich, mildly dry finish.
Thailand is a constitutional monarchy which seesaws between parliamentary democracy and military junta from time to time. It is known as a middle economy – 20th largest in the world, a notable position given its size. It counts tourism manufacturing and agriculture as the leading sectors in the economy. Thailand borders Cambodia, Lao and Myanmar as well as Malaysia to the south. This East Asian nation is lush, tropical and green. From golden sandy beaches to tree capped mountainous regions in the north Thailand is a diverse geographical nation.
About Thailand Coffee
Tanzania has been producing coffee since the late 1800’s, introduced by German missionaries and propagated ever since. Some farms on the slopes of Kilimanjaro in the north have tree roots that are almost as old as the history of coffee in the country itself! The North of Tanzania on the Kilimanjaro slopes and further west to Karatu produce most of the sought after hard beans that Tanzania produces. Southern growing zones of Mbeya and Mbinga close to the Malawi boarder, produce more coffee, but due to their climatic growing conditions, produce a lighter softer bean structure. Robusta is also found on the lake of Victoria to the far west. Tanzania coffee is mildly acidic, with northern coffees displaying almost Kenya like characteristics of forest fruits, blackcurrant and lemon. The Peaberry is famed in the US, and the Japanese market has a penchant for northern AA’s (possibly due to the similarity of Mt Fuji to Kilimanjaro)
