Recently bought this coffee, and I'm amazed at the quality. Unlike most coffee, Doi Chaang doesn't have the slightest of bitter flavours. Not to mention all of their coffee is certified organic, fair-trade and 100% Arabica.
Beyond being organic, this company was first created by father and son John M. Darch and John A. Darch.
As a requirement, they wanted 50% of the business to be co-owned by farmers in Doi Chaang Village, Thailand.
The company first opened in 2006, and within six years the farmers in Doi Chaang were able to obtain electricity, improved infrastructure, running water, and internet.
Theres just a certain amount of care that goes into both parties. A certain degree of care that more often than not, doesn't exist among outsourced manufacturers.
The farmers in Doi Chaang Village, get 50% of the profits from Canada, therefore creating a unique form of sustainability.
Essentially this is coffee you can feel good about, without sacrificing taste or quality.
