Chiang Mai: Coffee Culture.

Black Canyon Coffee originated from Thailand and is one of the largest coffee chains besides Wawee Coffee and, of course, Starbucks. I thought the coffee was rather average, and the chocolate ice-blended was more satisfying on a scorching day.

Available at various locations.

In-between temple-hopping, we came across this mobile cafe on a caravan. The owner was very friendly despite a slight language barrier and the coffee, strong and robust, was the best I’ve had in Chiangmai.

He follows a schedule, going from place to place at fixed intervals to serve fresh coffee. So we were really lucky to bump into him.


This bee found our coffee too tempting to resist and decided to take the plunge. Had to scoop it out of the dense foam to save its life, haha.

Heartened to see such a vibrant coffee culture in Thailand, and at the same time extremely excited to see how this culture develops in our little red dot.
