Southeast Asia is well known for its indigenous coffee – with blends from Java, Sumatra and Vietnam exported worldwide.
Although it’s not as widely known, Thailand is also a coffee producer. And you can taste-test your way through the country’s offerings at the Phuket Coffee Lab.
Our personal favorite? It’s the Phuket Coffee Lab’s very own Andaman Blue specialty roasted coffee.
To make the blend, the finest premium Arabic coffee beans are selected from the mountains of Thailand. They roast in Phuket, about 3km from Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort, using state-of-the-art roasting methods and technologies. This ensures not only great quality fresh coffee but also consistent results again and again.
We actually love Andaman Blue so much that we sell it in our our Outrigger Trading Co. store at Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort. We also use the beans at Locavore and Metzo’s Restaurant.
In addition to the Andaman Blue brand and a selection of the best coffee beans from around Thailand, Phuket Coffee Lab also imports coffee from other sources such as Ethiopia and Guatemala, so there’s always plenty of choice available. You can enjoy a freshly created moment of happiness at the Lab itself, or take home a bag or two to enjoy at leisure
Barista classes are offered for the real coffee geeks out there.
