I was recently given the opportunity to try coffee from the Doi Chaang Coffee Company out of Vancouver British Columbia. This is a very unique company as it is the grower, roaster and marketer of the coffee.
“Doi Chaang Coffee produced by the hillside Akha tribe of Northern Thailand in Doi Chaang is Certified Organic, high altitude and shade grown, hand picked, fresh-water washed, sun dried and in all aspects cultivated with the sustainable farming practices of the 900 family co-operative that owns the coffee growing and processing operations. It is we believe, the only coffee (from anywhere) that from grower to seller is the same entity.”
This coffee has received great reviews and on the 100-point review (much like those in the wine and beer industry) conducted by Kenneth Davids it received 90 points on the Medium roast and 93 points on the Peaberry roast.
I received the Single-Origin Signature and the Single-Origin Peaberry roasts. I have at this time only tried the Peaberry roast and I found that it was amazing. I was really impressed with the earthy flavor. I am looking forward to sampling the Signature roast as well.
Currently the best way to get your hands on this great coffee is to purchase directly through the Doi Chaang website. However you can find it in select shops in LA & Ojai CA, as well as in various provinces in Canada. Where to Buy & Online Shop
