Organic Arabica Coffee from Chiang Rai Highland, Thailand 250g
This variant is currently sold out
We buy our organically grown coffee beans directly from the Hill Tribes in Chiang Rai, who have dedicated their lives to the cultivation of pesticide-free, organic Arabica coffee beans since the 1970s.
The highland farms are located between 1200 - 1500m above the sea, away from pollution.
We love their premium arabica beans because they are low in acidity unlike typical arabica beans which are growing popular in Thailand. We offer three different roasting profiles which offer different health benefits. Personally, we blend light with a bit of dark roast to benefit from chemicals which were produced at those temperature ranges.
Coffee’s primary antioxidant—making up as much as 10% of green coffee beans by weight—is chlorogenic acids (CGA). It is also a powerful anti-inflammatory compound. CGA makes cells more responsive to insulin, which helps explain how coffee fights diabetes. CGA also protects DNA from damage, which helps explain the link to reduced risk for certain cancers.
The more you roast, the higher the temperature you apply to coffee beans, the amount of CGA decreases. Hence, if you wish to benefit from these wonderful health properties, you should choose light roasted coffee such as this over medium or dark roast.
Medium-roasted beans, which is an ideal choice for just about everyone. It is easy to drink, the beans have mild acidity, and it will not give a jittery feeling afterwards. It does not have the strong health benefits such as light roast, but as far as the taste and aroma are concerned, it has always been the most popular roasting profiles for many coffee lovers.
Dark Roast is perfect to make espresso and cold brew. It has depth, mild acidity, and is very enjoyable to drink.
Dark roast coffee restores blood levels of the antioxidants vitamin E and glutathione more effectively than light roasted coffee, which can assist weight loss.
It also produces more N-methylpyridinium when roasted. The darker the roast, the more N-methylpyridinium is present. This chemical appears to prevent your stomach cells from producing excess acid.
This means, dark roast coffee make it easier on the stomach whereas lighter roasted coffees might give you the acid-like stomach irritation that coffee drinkers sometimes experience.
We also have organic instant coffee if you do not have a machine to make coffee.
