Akha Ama Coffee
Chiang Mai, Thailand
This wonderful coffee shop started as one village’s effort to grow and sell their own coffee at fair prices has become a small but growing number of coffee shops in Thailand. Buying a cup of this artisanal coffee directly sends funds back to a small village outside of Chiang Rai.
Villagers opted to combine their strengths to not only produce, but also process and market their own coffee. The original flagship location is in Chiang Mai in a charming local neighborhood just outside of the moat.
The coffee shops offer free wifi and a low-key spot to pass a few hours, or to grab your morning cup o’ joe.
