Hello!

We are family Kikeo.

We grew the coffee you are now drinking, here in my village of Houay Way on the Bolaven Plateau in Laos.

We grow our coffee for
Our family grows coffee just like it has been grown it in Paksong for over a hundred years – in a forest, together with a diverse mix of trees (by the way, the technical term for this is “agroforestry”).
In the photo you can see one of our farms, with my son Phet working.
This is where we grow the coffee you are drinking

We own a total of

5.4ha

of coffee farms (Family Bounserm 2.1 ha, Family Khamlarn 4.1 ha)

There are total of

377

trees growing on our farms combined, meaning we have an average of 380 trees per ha.

You can also find

5

different tree species in our agroforests – including the endangered Mai Doo or Burma Padauk
Growing coffee is hard but rewarding work.
For example, every year we pick 1000 liters of coffee. Thats around 30 big buckets!

In the past, we were vulnerable to a lot of risks due to fluctuating global market prices of coffee.

In addition, we often sold our coffee to midle-men, leaving us with very little.

However, now thanks to our cooperation with

We earn 2.25x MORE than before

The cooperation also gives our family financial stability, and enables us to make more long-term plans, such as sending our children to university one day.

Our mission is to grow great coffee to our customers, all the while protecting the forests and nature of Laos.
We hope you enjoy this cup of coffee we have made for you! -Family Kikeo
