The family run farm and washing station is led by Mr Li, processing coffee grown by surrounding villages of small holders as well as their own land.

Transparencyess

Indochina

Back in 2015, having moved to Bangkok for work, we were fortunate enough to enjoy delicious specialty coffees from the surrounding region. The quality of the coffee, coupled with the skill and dedication of the growing communities, made a lasting impression. On our return to London, we couldn’t find these origins being offered anywhere – this spurred us into creating Indochina.

We’re now an established, independent importer dedicated exclusively to Asian origins. Since our inception, we’ve built solid relationships with farmers, producers and roasters, and we’re working together towards a more transparent and sustainable future for coffee.
