What's your favorite franchise Coffee Shop?

Recommended Posts

Doi Chang and Doi Wawee can produce excellent coffees, although the quality seems to vary from shop to shop. Amazon is adequate, when nothing else is around.

+1 on the Doi Chaang - most of their places make quite a nice americano. And the drip-coffee bags that you can get in most hypermarkets are almost as good as grinding freshly roasted beans yourself....

Why support a franchise that charges three times the price? Keep mum and pop in business, buy from independent people.

It almost feels like stealing when having a cup of coffee at a small random place for 30-35 baht compared to the 100+ at the chains.... But it's fun to try new places all the time - I spent a few weeks this summer going to a new place every day, unfortunately I forgot to keep track of which places that served the best coffees. :-(

I like the Mon Ngo...pronunciation (mon nuk) Organic shade coffee grown at 950 meters outside of

Chiangmai going towards Pai....

It's hard to find but found it and it is by far better than Tar Bucks and all of the rest of the

big company coffee's one finds in Thailand...

With that said to each his own.....

Boncafe shops (outlets) have a big choice of coffee at very reasonable prices, I prefer to make at home, and experiment with mixing and matching coffees.

Dean and Deluca for a cappuccino and ham and cheese croissant if I'm hungover works a treat!

easy, Costa Coffee - the only one where you can get a flat white. We have two coffee farms and a little coffee shop too and I do like the sweet coffee with a pot of green tea on the side but... I will go to Costa all day long!

Imo... ambiance often has a lot to do with a good coffee..

same as presentation with food..

Of course i am biased. Probably have one of the greatest little ambience cafe in Thailand.

Literally situated above the water...old fishermans house

looking at the ocean..

koh kood..last island before Cambodia.

I perk my own coffee at home as well.. Usually bring my coffee from UK but just run out. Any recommendations for local coffee for perking not too bitter but quite strong preferred. Also like Rabika coffee shops. Good value and Americano with a splash of milk my number 1.

If ambience counts, then next time you travel from Lampang to CM, look out for a coffee/ice-cream place called La Delizia.

Just gorgeous view to look out on as you sip your coffee.

I think Starbucks makes the most consistence cup of hot coffee based solely on the training. As for the others such as Amazon and Black Canyon, they always have a burnt taste, I suspect they don't know how make a proper cup, not really the beans fault. Many of the smaller franchise stores buy coffee from the handful of coffee suppliers in the market. There are many small coffee shops around Bangkok and Chiang Mai run by coffee enthusiasts that are worth a try.

For those who like to pull your own shot, I recommend the beans from the following companies:

Doi Chang

Bluekoff

P&F

Roytawan
