We roast our Thai beans to two different roast levels and blend them after roasting to give a full spectrum of flavor. Slightly bitter with muted peanut butter, creamy, sweet notes to it.

How is it grown?

This coffee comes to us from a missionary friend named Charlie who works in a remote village named Tung Prapawn in Thailand. He wrote the following about how they grow the coffee;

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 families to use organic farming methods that fit well with the peaceful and harmonious Thai culture. We also compensate farmers ABOVE Fair Trade coffee prices. This enables families to prosper and raise their families with dignity.

Why is it special?

Why is our Thai coffee special and a bit more expensive? First, because of limited production, it's a much more rare coffee with limited quantities available. This is not a bean you're going to see everywhere. Starbucks isn't going to be carrying it. In fact, it's very likely that your favorite micro-roaster isn't even carrying it. It's difficult to find on the coffee exchanges because most of the Thai yearly crop production is kept in the country for their use because of their high import tariffs on coffee. It's through our relationship with a fellow missionary that we are even able to secure our supply. Thailand is quickly becoming known as a world-class producer of high-quality coffees with excellent flavors. It's a pleasure to offer you a coffee that reflects our motto "World-class products for world-class survivors."

What's the story of the village and how has growing coffee affected them?

In a nutshell, Tung Prapawn was the poorest village in Northern Thailand; very remote and isolated. News crews used to come in to film these poor, remote villagers. The name of the village used to be Tung Pii, which means Field of Evil Spirits. After Charlie began working with the village, great development came. They suggested to the local county officials that the name be changed to Tung Prapawn, which means Field of Blessings. The county took the name to the Provincial level and they approved the name change. The provincial-level took it to the National level and now the village is officially called Tung Prapawn. A couple years ago they brought a new water system to the village as clean sources of water had dried up.

By growing and processing coffee the villagers have been able to triple their income which is quite significant when you consider they used to live on $200/year.

Not only does your purchase of this coffee bless our girls but it also helps the villagers of Tung Prapawn as well as orphanes and at risk youth.

Great smell great taste

When I make a pot of coffee at work every day I hear my coworkers sniffing the air to see where the coffee is

Wonderful smell and taste

I buy this for my girlfriend, who happens to be Thai. Over the years, I've purchased other brands of Thai coffee, which at the time my girlfriend liked. After trying this coffee, however, all the others became secondary. She loves this Special blend. Unlike all the other coffees she has tried (where once opened, the smell would dissipate quickly), this one keeps it's aroma and taste until the bag is empty. For her, this is, by far, her favorite. . .and since she loves it, I'll keep ordering it.

Strong & Unique

I have been drinking coffee for almost 40 years. Tried many brands, and international brews including Russian and Turk. The Thai Special Blend is one of my favorites. The scent alone is just magnificent. Flavor is strong and bold, the flavor is unique and smooth. And what Teshua does to serve others only makes it better.

Thank you for the great review Erik! We're really glad you are enjoying the coffee!
