One of the best in Chiang Mai

Small coffee shop, the owner blends coffee beans by himself and sell many kind of coffee beans in package. The taste of coffee is very good and try some home made bakery too. This cafe have no WiFi and plug because his concept is " No WiFi, drink coffee and talk to each other!"

Mocha is delicious, not sweet at all. Ranks highly with one other seriously better coffee joint around here. Although a different vibe for sure. Less of a crowd, has seating. Good service with free ice water. No wifi. Quiet place to sip coffee undistracted if you like. Barista is serious about his stuff, but not so friendly. You can tell... More

God damn man! I got lost for one day cuz of the drama comment on TA. Finally today I meet the veteran barista from Australia and currently a coffee roaster. All I can say is smooth, fruit, berry, balance acidity. Find the right location please check ponganes espresso.

I went with my friends in this coffee shop and I must say it is very welcoming and with a courteous staff always ready to serve you. I believe that coffee is one of the best in chiang mai, and the prices are equal to the quality of the product being offered. Recommended

The aftertaste of the coffee is better than when you actually drink it. I really hate to be forced to take a large latte because of the extremly small size of a rugular one. A large latte (which is not that large at all) adds up to a hefty 95 baht. Almost Europaean price.For that money one has to sit... More

This place is doing great things with coffee, and I'm so happy to be able to drink coffee that is not only roasted, but also grown so close to where it's being served! It's a fabulous feeling! Go pick up a bag of their beans as well, a great souvenir!

I know this place since when they were in the small Moonmuang soi, so, ...what to say, change the place but not the quality and the coffee test. I recommend this nice coffee shop, wure you will like it.

In my humble opinion, this is the finest coffee shop in Thailand. This is a real coffee shop, no internet, polite and professional.

A hip cafe in the old town. It's not one of the best cafe you can find in Chiang Mai, but it's definitely worth to go if you're around the old town area. We've ordered an iced coffee (Thai style) which is terrific! The cappuccino we have had is good too!
