When I first came to Chiang Mai in 2006 coffee was considered Nescafé with condensed milk and sugar. As a Seattle area native who witnessed the coming of age of coffee and its culture, my greatest challenge in yearly visits since that first one was...More

Found this little coffee roasting cafe after searching on the internet. Excellent coffee and reasonable price. A definite must if you're wanting a good rich tasting cup of coffee.

Top quality coffee from in house roasters. It’s not a classic cafe though, so don’t expect toilet, nor place to work. They’re mainly roasting beans here and sell to other places, the coffee is “by the way”. Definitely worth a visit!

Found this one by accident. What a find! Beautiful coffee and a nice vibe. The coffee is good enough to drink as a piccolo.

This is a simple, non-descript set up with minimal decor and seating areas. Think they specialize more in the sale of roasted beans. But the coffee was excellent! Good if you just want to pick up a coffee on the go. We had to walk...More

Ponganes Espresso began in a tiny shop on Moon muang soi 5 in Chiang Mai's old city, Thailand and one common goal :to develop a place where customers would be guaranteed an excellent coffee experience every time they visited the store.
