No barista small-talk required.


Brave Roasters

Ekameth Witvasutti and co. are a mainstay of foodie markets across town. Avoid all the hubbub by shopping on the roasters’ newly launched website.
Try this: The Flag Bearer blend (B410), which mixes organic beans from Jomthong in Northern Thailand and Bolaven Plateau in Laos for a particularly rich espresso, or the Ethiopian Gedeo Yirgacheffe (B680/250g) for milder tea and lychee notes.

Left-Hand Roasters

This new subscription service flies the flag for Thai small-batch coffee. Choose between blends, espresso roasts or single origin beans to be sent to your house every two weeks. Founder/head roaster Dustin Joseph works with family-run farms throughout Northern Thailand.
Try this: The Honey x Bourbon blend (B283/200g) for a morning Aeropress brimming with macadamia and vanilla notes.


The Chiang Mai-born coffee roaster offers an exhaustive range of beans (with arabica blends starting at just B125/250g), as well as haphazardly added tasting notes. 
Try this: The Classic Blend (B 185/250g) combines Thai, Brazilian, Colombian and Indonesian beans for what they call a taste of sweet caramel and dark chocolate. 

Phil Coffee Roasters

Educated in Melbourne and coffee-schooled in Taiwan, Han sisters Jaszmine and I Wuen Wang offer delicious, beautifully packaged roasts.  
Try this: The Rwanda Musasa Dukunde (B500/200g) makes a raisin and plum-inflected filter coffee. Sign up for a three-month Explorer’s Pack to taste one or two 200g single origins (B1,740/B3,480) per month.


Varatt Vichitvadakan is coffee royalty, having founded both Roast and online and brick-and mortar offshoot. 
Try this: The new single-origin from Mae Kamphong (B550/250g) boasts mild toffee notes. Feeling lazy? They’ll also ship ready-to-drink cold brew (black or white) at B600 for six bottles.
