Have you tried Doi Yao on Theppasit. Grows his own coffee in Chiang Rai.

From Thaphraya its about 1.5km up on the right.

Many people enjoy Bon Cafe coffee sold at their shop in North Pattaya (Nakluea Rd) and also sold discounted at Makro.

Do you mean Italian roast or actual beans. I don't think Italy is known for growing coffee beans. The Aroma brand beans sold at Foodland have an Italian roast. I have also seen said roast at Starbucks. I have also seen whole bean Italian roast by Illy and Lavazza at the farang supermarkets in town.

Many people also like Benjamit Coffee for their beans but don't know if they have an Italian roast...would Thai do?

I have had pretty good luck with the range of whole beans available at Best at Dolphin Circle.

You will find good coffee beans "Italian style" at the Italian delicatessen nearly opposite the jomtien market ( jomtien second road) and reasonably cheap.

Benamit Coffee Shop on Soi Bhukhao market - backs onto Pattaya Dai. Roasts on site.

I fully concur. You can buy these beans fresh from the roaster.

Be very wary of the beans sold in supermarkets. You don't know how fresh they are as they can sit on store shelves for months.

No such thing as Italian beans. Coffee is normally grown at high elevations in tropical climates. If you are interested in a high quality coffee, freshly roasted, and delivered to your door, see the attachment.

The danger of buying beans from a shop is that beans should typically be consumed within ten days of roasting when stored at room temperature, and a shop's beans are often much older than that; there is no way to know. I am not in Pattaya and have never been to Benamit, but since they roast their own, they might be a good bet for a walk-in purchase. I would ask them when they roast and show up to buy the beans still hot out of the roaster.

Excellent information TM, I wanted to find out more info on coffee, so did a Barista course recently and I bring back beans freshly roasted from my trips to Vietnam and Cambodia. So very Interested in your info.

Many of the commercial brands pack their beans in vacuum bags. I'm sure it's not perfect but even when they're rather old, you can smell they are preserved somewhat at least. Then when exposed to air, of course, use them ASAP.

Benjamit roasts the beans on site and dates the bag.

Good stuff. Always fresh.

I have them precision grind it in their burr grinder vs using my chopper grinder.
