About Doi Chaang

Doi-Chaang-Single-Estate-roasts-(l-r)-Decaf,-Medium,-Dark,-Signature,-Peaberry-&-Espresso

Doi Chaang Coffee’s story is as rich as the coffee itself. Locally owned by a father-son team, John M. Darch and John A. Darch, the Canadian Doi Chaang Coffee Company first opened its doors in 2006 with one requirement; that its farmers in Doi Chang Village, Northern Thailand, own 50% of it.

The partnership created the “beyond fair trade” business model – 50% of the profits flow back into the village. In more than six years, the farmers have been able to have access to running water, electricity, improved infrastructure and even Internet. Doi Chaang focuses on the well-being of the farmers; sending medical supplies to the village, educating the farmers on coffee cultivation and doing it all as sustainably as possible.

All of our coffee is certified organic and fair trade, as well as 100% Arabica – which is the highest quality of coffee plants. We have six Single Estate roasts – Decaf, Medium, Dark, Peaberry, Signature and Espresso – as well as four blends – Espress-Yoself! (espresso), Chillin’ (light), Hardiwired (dark) and Social Medium (medium) – and biodegradable, single serve, Keurig-compatible aroma cups in Social Medium and Dark. We also sell Wild Thai Civet Coffee – totally wild and cage free.

We don’t have our own shops, but you can find us in major retailers like Safeway, IGA, London Drugs, Costco and more. You can also find us through our online shop.

PRESS & ACCOLADES

“Delicious without any bitterness . . . this coffee is good.” – Jane Goodall, Conservationist.

“In terms of balance and versatility (on its own or blended, espresso or brewed, medium or dark roast), the Doi Chaang offerings are comparable to the best Kona beans.” – Mark Pendergrast, author of Uncommon Grounds.

“Critic Ken Davids, whose ratings in Coffee Review have become the Parker Points for the beverage, tells me that Doi Chaang Coffee is in the top 10 percent of coffees he has “cupped”, rating around 89-91, where your typical cup of Starbucks is 83 to 84, and Folgers instant crystals come in around 60.” – Timothy Taylor, “Comparing Vancouver’s Coffee Beans”, Vancouver Magazine.
