More about the producers:

Doi Saket coffees produced by Nui Intakad & Aoy Jaisooksern, were the first Thai coffee we have ever featured in 2020. Since then, we have coffee from them every year. This year Ply took the trip back to Thailand and get to visit with them, bringing their own coffee that we roast back to Nui Intakad & Aoy Jaisooksern to taste. We are very fortunate to be able to feature 2 of Doi Saket coffees in this special release, anaerobic washed typica and black honey typtica.

Nui Intakad & Aoy Jaisooksern are a young couple, who had quit their white collar jobs in the city to come back to their parents' coffee farm 6 years ago. Nui is 34 and is an engineer by trade, while Aoy is 32 and is an accountant by trade.

Doi Saket is the oldest coffee growing area in Thailand, located in Chiang Mai province. Back in the late 1970's, the first Arabica trees that were part of the opium replacement program of the late Thai King were tested here, and have never been replaced by higher-yield cultivars like in many other regions. As a result, heirloom varietals, particularly Typica, are still commonplace in many old farms. The coffee trees are 30-40 years old, older than the farmers! We want to demonstrate to the farmers that there are people who appreciate and are willing to pay more for the heirloom cultivar to compensate for the lower yield. Typica is now rare as farmers replaced it with higher yield and more rust resistant strands.

Ply had a chance to visit with Nui Intakad during his visit to Thailand in 2023.
