“Lovely Akha coffee!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

This shop is run by a lady from a hilltribe called the Akha. The coffee served is produces and roasted by her family in the north of Thailand. By visiting this coffee place you support her and her family. The coffee is highly recommended! Had coffee with breakfast for a decent price.

Awesome experience!

“'The Best Coffee in Asia'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

This is my first Tripadvisor review and as a coffee lover I feel compelled to share this with you... If you're in Chiang Rai and you appreciate coffee you will not want to miss this!

Stumbled upon this small, relatively nondescript cafe shortly after arriving in Chiang Rai.

Without exaggeration... this was (for me) some of the best coffee anywhere in the world! And perfectly prepared.

The barista (and I guess she is also the cafe owner) is super nice. The beans are grown on her family's nearby property in the mountainous area near the Lao's border.

Great experience!

“independent cafe in chiangrai, thailand”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

i spent almost 3 hours at the cafe. i am glad i did. not just for the coffee, but also chatting with tu, the young owner of nangnon coffee. After knowing that she can speak mandarin, we converse more freely. she told me nangnon coffee is named after the doi nangnon resembling the shape of a sleeping lady. They grow and harvest their own coffee bean, at their own backyard in mae sai.

before she started on her own in chiangrai, this young lady actually work alongside with the founder (lee) of the now famous akha ama coffee in chiangmai, before relocating back to her hometown to be close to her parents.

btw you can rest assured despite her young age, she can brew nice cup of coffee and do a beautiful latte art.

so do drop by when visiting chiangrai.

“First rate coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

I recently moved to Chiang Rai, and this has become my favorite coffee shop. The espresso drinks are first rate, and the owner is charming. She also speaks English quite well.

“Good coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

Nice little cafe own and run by a well trained barista. (We were told that if you go by the place and the girl is not there, don't go in. The man doesn't know how to make coffee!) Very friendly and good latte art thrown in with free smiles. Good brownies too!
