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.

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!

Nevermind that the coffee shop owner, A'tu is just so lovely and friendly, the shop itself is welcoming with lovely decor. Make sure to get your picture with A'tu for her 'Thanks for visiting' wall.
The coffee is grown and roasted by her family in their village. She was also trained as a barista by khun Lee of Akha Ama Coffee fame. The coffee is lovely and the brownies are a definite must!
Drop in for a visit. You won't be disappointed.

I'm from Wellington, New Zealand, so am used to a ridiculously high ratio of cafes all producing high standards of coffee.

I don't expect the same standard in Thailand, but when I saw all the 5 star reviews for this place I made sure I checked it out while in Chiang Rai.

It's quite a boxy location and you can tell it's family run as it has a nice personalised vibe unlike the major franchise coffee joints.

The beans were good but the extraction wasn't so much. It's running on a tiny little machine and I imagine it doesn't have the piping to provide the necessary pressure. An investment in more infrastructure is required to provide a fine extraction that will stand above others in Chiang Mai.

Not really much going on in terms of food or supporting snacks, so for a specialist coffee shop I'd expect them to excel at their extracts.

I ordered an espresso.

Tu's family grows their own coffee and it's amazing. The decorations are nice. The music is good. And Tu is very nice as well.
