I'd been asked to bring back some pepper by a friend who's a chef. Basically I know nothing about pepper other than I like it on my food. The staff were welcoming and friendly. Being knowledgeable about their products they assisted me in making the correct choice. The pepper is nicely packed which helps when you're going to be carrying it around for a couple of months. Also it's priced well compared to some of the other places I visited.

Very friendly staff, being knowledgeable about the pepper they're selling. We learned a lot about Kampot pepper and had the opportunity to taste every kind of it, before buying something.
High quality pepper, can't wait to cook something with it

Of course Kampot pepper is the best in the world...and this shop has its own farm..so the best quality is assured....the staff are so knowledgable about the industry too...so a stop at this shop makes for a great education on pepper as well as being able to buy the best.
Thanks Chris and staff ...will be back for more.

If you're lucky (we were) to catch one of the owners in a free moment, you can learn a lot about pepper ... and its important place in Kampot's past (and future). The shop has a nice array of small packs of its different that make unique gifts for family and friends (especially food buffs).

I wandered into the Kampot Pepper Shop out of curiosity. The owner offered me an introduction to Kampot Pepper, which was very welcomed. I was invited to try out some of the pepper, which was really delicious.

This unexpected 'education' prompted me to head out to the plantations to learn some more. I also bought some real Kampot pepper to bring back to the UK!

The Kampot Pepper shop has its own farm which is great, so the pepper is of great quality and everyone gets paid fairly and well. The owner of the shop was absolutely lovely, very welcoming, friendly and passionate about the pepper. Located in the centre of Kampot so easy to get to, great quality pepper! Plus the owners son was absolutely adorable and offered us some banana :)

I read about Kampot pepper from a food and drink magazine before coming to Cambodia and had to learn more. Visiting this store, I found the staff to be very friendly and informative. They let you sample the pepper and let you view workers painstakingly sort the pepper. You are also invited to tour the farm where the pepper is grown. I took the challenge to make it to the farm. It was a very very rough road 20 km from town. The guide at the farm was also very friendly and informative. The pepper is amazing and I look forward to sharing it with friends when I go home. It does make you food taste better but it is pretty expensive. I bought a kilo to share.
