Doi Chaang Coffee
Piko’s Peaberry Medium Roast
|Roaster Location:||Calgary, Alberta, Canada|
|Coffee Origin:||Northern Thailand.|
|Review Date:||October 2009|
The aroma is delicate, balanced, with nut, molasses, moist pipe tobacco, a hint of tart fruit. Soft acidity, silky mouthfeel, quietly distinctive flavor: continued nut and molasses notes, a hint of fir. The fruit notes are pungent and deep: black current, black cherry. A dry fruit-toned finish stays on the rich side of astringent.
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. This coffee consists entirely of peaberries, a kind of bean that results 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.
