Producers Nui Intakad & Aoy Jaisooksern are a young couple who quit their day jobs in the city to return to their parents' coffee farm five years ago. Nui is 34 and an engineer by trade, while Aoy is 32 and an accountant by trade, and together they’re making waves in the Thai coffee scene. This is the real face of what sustainable coffee farming looks like, in a country where the cost of living is higher than in many other producing countries.
We're so proud of the coffees we've been able to source from Thailand with the help of Beanspire (check out an awesome interview Roland did with Faudi Pitsuwan from Beanspire on In My Mug episode 629 here) and think the work being done there by producers like Nui and Aoy really deserves to be shouted about.
As coffee producers are generally getting older, it’s rare to find younger people taking up the trade, and it’s fantastic that we’ve been able to work Nui and Aoy for several years! Our sourcing partners Beanspire handle the processing, and we’re so excited to present coffees from Nui and Aoy for what they are: a great coffee collaboration.
