Akha Ama Coffee
Akha Ama Coffee, established on March 29, 2010, embodies a profound dedication to supporting local communities through the artistry of coffee—from cultivation to brewing. Nestled 1500 meters above sea level in Northern Thailand's highland region lies the village of Maejantai, where Akha Ama thrives amidst a community of smallholders.
This coffee, cultivated by these smallholders, reflects the rich heritage of the indigenous Akha people, renowned for their expertise in highland crop cultivation. "Ama," meaning "mother" in the Akha language, signifies the invaluable transfer of generational wisdom into the nuanced craft of coffee growing and processing.
Since integrating coffee cultivation into their farms in 2000, the village practices sustainable intercropping, blending coffee plants with an array of fruits like plum, persimmon, peach, apricot, and diverse vegetables. Handpicked Arabica beans undergo immediate wet processing, ensuring meticulous grading and unwavering quality in every batch.
Akha Ama operates under the highest standards, fostering meaningful relationships with customers, suppliers, and the environment. Their commitment to the community resonates through sustainable practices, nurturing an ecosystem where everyone flourishes.
