One of the new kids on the block in the speciality coffee scene, Thailand has burst onto the scene in the last few years and is seen as one of the most exciting origins for the future of the industry.

Thailand is an extremely progressive country and is one of the few speciality coffee growing countries that has a vibrant speciality coffee consuming scene. This has helped the industry in Thailand by encouraging farmers to produce higher quality coffee as they can see the end product and in fact become the consumer themselves.

Coffee from Thailand is changing all every year. Most of the coffee traceable to the exact farm because of most farmers own micro mills, this means that the subtle flavours of the coffees are not drowned out by the bolder notes typical in cooperative processing.

Typical taste profiles have sparkling acidity with a balanced chocolatey sweetness and notes of nuts.
