Our coffee comes exclusively from the Maesalong area near Chiang Rai, Thailand. The area, which is mainly inhabited by mountain peoples, the Akha and Lahu, has actually dedicated itself to the cultivation of tea. However, there are some farmers who have dared to grow coffee with success. More and more coffee beans from the area are making it into the consumer chain in Asia and now also in Europe. Smaller coffee farms and communities are selected for cooperation with Rüegg's GmbH. The cooperation takes place with a partner company in Jakhamnoi, which is located in the middle of Maesalong and offers us geographical and political advantages. This partner company (Rüegg's Thailand) takes on the quality, social and cultivation controls.
