Let begin with Thailand’s geographic. Why Thailand is perfect for growing both Arabica and Robusta coffee?
The areas of heavy rainfall and higher elevation are required to produce the Arabica plant, so the hill in northern Thailand are suitable. Also, most of the Arabica beans commonly grown in the Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai province in the north of Thailand with an elevation range of 800 metres to 1,200 metres above the sea level. The local people control the majority of the farm. They usually grow coffee along with other fruit trees. The environment affects the minerals in the soil, and bees help to spread the pollen of the fruit trees to the coffee flowers, all contribute to making Thai coffee special. Robusta coffee also popular in Thailand, the local farm in southern Thailand can produce 80,000 tonnes each year.
The coffee farm is more than a business
Many local who lives in the hill tribes of Thailand are impoverished and in need of jobs. The coffee industry gives the farmers more money for their crop and gives them a way to help their families. The coffee business also supports a job to the locals, especially the refugees in the hill tribes who are looking for employment with a sustainable wage. So, for the local living, coffee is not just a drink, but it is part of their life. That is why all of the growth processes are full of quality which made Thailand one of the leading countries in Asia for coffee production.
