History & Philosophy
Thailand’s growing coffee industry began with an initiative of the late King Rama IX as he sought to provide alternatives to the opium farming that was abundant throughout Thailand’s north.
“People all over the world are drinking coffee. Try to plant some and one day you will know.”
The King uttered these words in 1974 among a discussion with Payo of the Karen Hill Tribe people whom worked the land along the Thailand-Myanmar people, and in doing so he mapped out the strong position coffee would occupy in his country’s society in the years ahead. Today, the influence of his words and initiative are plain to see as locals and travellers alike enjoy coffee within all urban centers and even on the roadside of trans-provincial roadways. Thailand’s love of coffee continues to grow year on year.
Our goal is to continuously grow and improve the coffee business from seed to cup. We serve as a bridge to every part of the industry, branching the knowledge in the coffee business from upstream to downstream and back. Providing education and experience to all of the industry stakeholders in order to sustainably develop Thai coffee business.
