Doi Chaang Coffee
Aged Piko’s Peaberry
|Roaster Location:||Calgary, Alberta, Canada|
|Coffee Origin:||Northern Thailand|
|Review Date:||March 2007|
A quiet but interesting coffee: soft, low-toned, with hints of cedar, warm spice, chocolate, and a low-acid fruit that suggests banana. The chocolate notes become more explicit in the impressively long, resonant finish.
Peaberries result when the coffee fruit develops only a single, oval bean rather than the usual pair of flat-sided beans. Peaberries produce a somewhat different (often better) cup than normal beans from the same crop, from which they may or may not be separated during grading. Aging coffee typically reduces its acidity and increases body. Doi Chaang is a single-estate coffee produced by a northern Thailand hill tribe in the Golden Triangle mountains of Thailand and roasted in Alberta Canada. The independent coffee growers receive over 50% of the profits of this unusual and pioneering venture. Visit www.doichaangcoffee.com or call 866-924-2264 for more information.
