Doi Chaang rests on a mountainous hillside that is uniquely enriched to produce the very best coffee beans. The plantation is surrounded by lush old growth forest and fresh flowing spring water in the Golden Triangle Mountains of Thailand.
This Doi Chaang single-estate coffee consists entirely of Peaberries, a kind of bean that results when the coffee fruit develops only a single, oval bean rather than the usual pair of flat-sided beans. Peaberries produce a somewhat different (often better) cup than normal beans from the same crop, Cultivating coffee under a canopy of various shade trees enhances the micro-climate of the area. A balanced ecosystem is created which mirrors a natural forest setting and ensures quality coffee bean production.
This Doi Chaang Peaberry is a rare single-estate, certified organic, shade grown, hand-picked, fresh water washed and sun-dried speciality coffee and one in which we are particularly pleased to offer.
