Doi Phatang, Liz Shen
93army coffee is located in Chiang Rai province and closely located to the border of Lao.
The farm is situated at an elevation of 1300 masl which makes it ideal for growing coffee in Thailand. At the farm Catimor hybrids (Bourbon & Typica) varieties are shade grown alongside native trees and flowers. The owner of the farm is Liz Shen, a young third generation Chinese entrepreneur. She transformed the land she inherited from her family into a well established farm that today produces high quality coffee. Her coffee journey started as barista in Taiwan, then moved back to Thailand to start her own shop, roastery & farm. Because she is active in the whole supply chain she knows how to maintain quality in coffee from harvest to cup.
