Black Honey comes from a various smallholder farmers of a small village called Khun Lao of Northern Thailand. The coffee plants are grown on slopes and under towering trees so they receive the great morning sunshines and the right amount of shades, keeping the forest healthy and making the coffee plants to produce beautiful coffee cherries with high quality.
The coffee of this village is sourced by Thai High coffee. Thai High coffee extensively visiting farms, meeting farmers, learning about the character of each coffee, educating and sharing their knowledge especially on the value of Red Ripe Cherry.
