Surely it must be an import from Columbia?

Maybe Columbia, Middlesex...😆

Boncafe in either ground or bean form. Buy at Makro - much cheaper there. 250 grams B114.

 

I have recently taken "lessons" in how to make really proper coffee. Why? Because the devil is in the detail! PM me if you would like me to help you!

 

3 in 1 ?? where the bulk of the material is sugar! Absolutely awful stuff and hopelessly expensive.

3-in-1 is cheaper and less hassle.

I bought lately a good espresso machine and a coffee grinder comparing the 3i-in-one to the nectar I drink now is:*#(^ (deleted) :tongue:

Big bags of beans available in many outlets.  Not necessary as 3-in-one is much easier. 

Depends if you like real coffee or a pack of chemicals.

Superb breakfast coffee. Retails at 88 baht/100g.

880 baht per kilo...wow.  That's a little steep...is a bottle of Bailey's Irish cream included?

Eh? About half the price I was paying for a similar quality bean in the UK. Yes, you can get cheaper pre-packed in Tesco Lotus but nowhere near the quality.

I order Doi Chang 100% French Arabica from Lazada. It comes in 250G Packages. The more you order the cheaper it is. They offer a 2 bags. one of French and one Vienna for 300 Baht. All of my friends like the French roast (darkness 5/5). The Vienna is 4/5.

I buy my coffee from a local cafe who imports 100kg bags of coffee from Laos.

They roast the beans and sell whole or ground for B250 for 500g.

I'm a real coffee lover and these beans are the best I have found in  Khon Kaen.

In my experience, if the coffee is freshly ground and then brewed directly, it really doesn't matter much what beans you use, meaning from where they come. The really top quality beans (blue mountain) are so expensive you wouldn't buy them anyway. I usually try to buy dark roasted Arabica generic brand, that's good enough for my 5 daily cups of coffee, been drinking that since I was 15 -16 years old.

Oh it does matter. Beans come in different grades. Beans from different areas taste different. And then there is Organic.

Couldn't agree more. When I first had coffee from Laos, I couldn't believe how got it is/was. Been drinking Laos coffee every since. I think it is just a matter of time until Laos coffee will be on the "coffee map" for having great coffee.
