Story

A naturally processed Thailand from the Mae Mon (pronounced may-monn) village in the Chiang Rai region of Thailand. Specialty coffee out of Thailand are super rare, and super special ones like this coffee are nearly non-existent. The exporter of this coffee works closely and has teamed up with the Integrated Tribal Development Program (ITDP), an organization in Thailand which helps provide the tribe villagers of Mae Mon with clean water and actively works toward ending poverty for the hill villagers. ITDP's coffee roots go all the way back to 1961, and in 1990 they created a cooperative to help the villagers produce higher quality coffees. By providing training, planting new coffee varietals that thrive in their specific region, and introducing new processing equipment, the lives of the coffee farmers have been drastically improved. Presently there are over 400 farms in 40 villages that participate in the cooperative, all of which is 100% farmer owned.
