    Op-Ed: Thailand is Not Just Beautiful Temples —
    They Produce Coffee Too Special
    By D Scott Rosenberg.
    Hidden deep within the Golden Triangle of Northern Thailand, nestled in the foothills of
    Elephant Mountain under a canopy of rain forest foliage, the indigenous Akha Hill Tribe
    cultivate and process organically grown single estate premium Arabica coffee.
    This year as Thailand celebrates the anniversary of H.M. the King’s 7th cycle birthday which
    is a very auspicious occasion for His Majesty and all of Thailand, it is interesting to note how
    a project started by the King back in the mid 1970's has grown and taken on international

    culture, banded together under the patronage of His Majesty Bhumibol Adulyadej,

    Doi Chaang villagers have established themselves as independent, successful coffee
    producers. Following 20 years of experience cultivating and processing coffee as individual
    farmers, the growers came together under the Doi Chaang banner to form a company,
    headquartered in Vancouver, Canada and Thailand, which owns and operates its own
    facilities, covering all aspects of production and processing which ensures that only the best
    product is produced.
    Doi Chaang Coffee Canada besides allocating 50% of the company to the tribe, pays them
    more than fair trade for the raw coffee beans which are shipped and roasted in Canada for
    distribution worldwide. Doi Chaang Thailand roasts and maintains their own distribution in
