About The Coffee
We are incredibly excited to have participated in and purchased a coffee from the Cup of Excellences' first-ever auction in Thailand.
The coffee ranked #5 from the Ma Family Coffee Farm in Chaing Rai, Thailand, was one that popped off the table for us. We immediately tasted notes of concord grape and toasted brown sugar, making it one of the more unique coffees we have cupped.
We are roasting this coffee light-medium to highlight the brown sugar notes in the cup and allow it to be versatile across brewing methods like pour-over and espresso.
We are honored to have supported the Ma Family's efforts in this auction and hope to create a long-standing relationship with their farm. Keep an eye out for more coffee from the Ma Family in the future!
The family was originally farming and growing corn and peach, which made earning a sustainable income difficult. Later in 1987, The parents turned to producing coffee for commercial sale. After graduating in 2007, Asadawoot Yapaenggoo returned home and found that commercial-grade coffee was not valued highly. Asadawoot Yapaenggoo turned toward the specialty market and began honing in on the farm's processing and growing methods. Today, the Ma Family farm achieved a rank of #5 in the Thailand Cup of Excellence auction and intends to use the funding raised to help further their specialty coffee journey.
