Mai Story

Coffee Beans Brimming With Rich Flavor

Our high-quality Arabica beans are grown by local families in the highlands of Northern Thailand, a region with an ideal climate, altitude and soil conditions. 

From this pristine soil, develop the nutrient-rich flavors that are the hallmarks of gourmet coffee.


Organic Methods & Above Fair Trade

Because the climate and soil conditions are so ideal, there is no need for the farmers to use harsh chemicals to protect and nurture the coffee trees. Over the years we have trained the family’s organic farming methods that fit well with the peaceful and harmonious Thai culture.

Mai Thai compensates farmers ABOVE Fair Trade coffee prices. This enables families to prosper and raise their families with dignity. (Read about our social mission below)


Strict Quality Control & Precise Roasting...

Our coffees are gourmet-grade because we have stringent quality controls at the farms and processing mills as well as the roasting process. Before we ship our beans to our roasting facility in the United States, they are hand graded; only the Premium Grade beans are used for our gourmet coffees.

Mai Thai Coffee has a long-standing partnership with roast master specialists. Our Premium Roast Coffees include: Full City, Special Blend, French Roast, Decaf, and Espresso Blend. We also have a selection of delicious Flavored Coffees.


Enjoy Our Exotic Gourmet Coffees At Any Time

Our coffees are known for their rich, well-balanced flavor. If you like a bold but never bitter flavor, our French Roast may be for you. If you need an energizing cup, we recommend our Special Blend or Full City. For a deep-bodied coffee, try our Espresso Blend. If your preference is Flavored Coffee, we use our Premium Grade beans to produce a selection of great tasting flavored coffees.

There is a Mai Thai Coffee for all occasions... Very reasonably priced, our Exotic GourmetCoffees will please you.


The Story Of Mai Thai Coffee Starts With Saving Children

Mai Thai Coffee is a vital part of a social project that is changing the lives of entire families and villages throughout the rural regions of Northern Thailand.

With the support of the Thai government, we help families develop economically through coffee cultivation. Farmers are compensated above Fair Trade prices for their product, enabling them to raise their standard of living and better care for their families. Children are receiving an education and villages are benefiting from better health and hygiene through our rural development projects.

When you drink Mai Thai Coffee, you contribute to the well-being of children and help us bring development to rural villages. We are confident you will enjoy the great taste of our coffee. Knowing that children are being cared for and villages are being developed makes it taste even better.

Direct Trade Coffee and Relationship Coffee are two phrases that have been used to help consumers realize the relationships involved in the coffee chain. Awareness of what we are buying and who we are buying it from is important to today’s consumer. Direct Trade Coffee refers to when the source area of the coffee is known; the community or co-op, etc..Relationship Coffee refers to being able to trace the coffee to the farmers themselves; locations, families, individual farmers.

We Are the Farmer … Mai Thai Coffee has a unique position of having actually grown out of a group of farmers working together. We not only know the farmer…we are the farmer! We know the farmer, their children, the schools they go to, the house they live in… even what they had for dinner last night! We have grown together as a community

Our Unique Relationship developed over the last 20 plus years in the highlands of Northern Thailand. Communities that were isolated and underdeveloped struggled to make ends meet in a fast-changing society. Arabica Coffee was introduced and now serves as an important source of income to over 500 families in our growing group.

By working together we have been able to support each other. Families are strengthening, communities are developing. A simple interest-free micro-finance system allows each family in our group the ability to access funds to develop their income abilities for the betterment of their family and community. Quality Arabica Coffee is the result…the proof is in the cup!
