The Road to Organically Grown

18 months from now, our coffee will officially be organic. It's a long ways away, but there is so much value in waiting. Earlier this month the Thai Department of Agriculture accepted our letter with the help of the Chiang Rai Agriculture Official Kaset Noi and his team, and I want to say thank you so much for your great advice. 

It's great for our coffee farmers to compete strictly on quality and nothing else. We want to become Certified Organic but don't solely want this label for business strategy, yet we want to show you the good we do on our farm. We are a small group of people who want to make good coffee for friends. We do not have enough money to pay for the popular international organic certification (USDA Organic), but we just want to stand for a group of people who really do good. 

We do not need the support of any person dominating international business because we only need trust from our supporters. That's enough for our small group of coffee farmers.

It's my passion to do harvest good coffee for friends. Aroma and flavor are important, but I want you to know that every drop of my coffee from farm to your cup is harvested with love, care, and safety during every step.

We want to stay in your kitchen like one of your family members forever, so please let us in. Haha. Miss you all, my coffee friends. Have a nice day!

I'm passionate about making a difference in the lives of those around me regardless of where I am in the world. Whether I am on the busy streets of Boston, building homes in Central Appalachia, or harvesting coffee abroad, I'm always looking for innovative ways to improve our lives and connect with those around us.
