This is a company with a small shop near Hua Lompong train station where you can bring in your own beans and use their equipment to brew up your coffee! It’s like brewing at home…but not. beanshere.com may have only a small selection but they have light roast Agricola Geisha from Panama that coffee aficionados should try. Their current offerings are only light to medium roasts so those of you looking for something dark won’t find it here. Something special about beanshere.com is they offer green (unroasted) coffee beans. So if you want to try your hand at roasting, here is your chance.
6 kinds of coffee plus 4 green beans
Price range 200 – 900฿/100 grams
An upside for us English speakers is the menus, descriptions, and ordering is in English.
MetaCup.com is a great place to find a wider selection of coffees. Drawing from at least 6 different local roasters; Phil Coffee Co., Wela Coffee Roaster, 93 Army Coffee, CoffeeWORKS, Brave Roasters, Tobo Coffee and Roaster, and Koff & Bun, MetaCup.com offers 33 coffees from all over the world, including a honey processed Geisha from Panama. Here you can find delicious coffees from the top coffee producing countries in the world and a wide range of roasts.
Metacup.com is also offering 5% off your first order if you use the coupon code “coffeesimple” at checkout.
There is a nice selection of coffee gear including pour overs and high-quality cups. MetaCup.com is completely in English (aside from their blog).
Price Range 140 – 1000฿/100 grams
As the 1st runner-up in the Thailand National Coffee Roasting Championship 2018, you should probably grab a bag of theirs. philscoffeecompany.com is currently offering 4 single-origin and 6 blends. So aside from offering some award-winning roasted coffee Phils Coffee Co. has subscriptions and a coffee pool. The coffee pool is an interesting way to get in on exciting coffees at discounted prices. What Phils Coffee does is collect everyone’s orders and then roast all at once. This saves cost that they pass on to you if you order 1KG you get 20% and those of you who are super thirsty can order 2KG to get 30% off! To get in on this deal you have to signup for their newsletter.
Offering 36 single origin coffees LinLinCoffee might have the largest selection out there. They carry some amazing coffees: Jamaican Blue Mountain 500g for 3,413฿ or for a smaller price tag Tanzania Peaberry 500g for 840฿. There are so many good coffees it is hard to choose. My only gripe is they do not say the roast of the beans – kind of a big deal.
The site is in Thai but you can use the google translate plugin and navigate just fine.
Braveroaster.com boasts 15 coffees from Thailand and abroad. They offer a couple of peaberry options from Thailand, but as I scrolled down what really caught my eye was “Brazil | Minas Gerais, Cerrado / Semi-Carbonic Maceration Process“. I know a little about coffee but I had never heard about “semi-carbonic maceration process”. After a little googling I found out that it is a process that starts out as a “wash process” but then the beans are locked in a stainless steel container and carbon dioxide is pumped in replacing all the oxygen. Then as the beans macerate the steel container holds in all that flavor. Anyway, it is a fancy new process taken from the winemaking community and a coffee that used this process has won some awards. However semi-carbonic maceration is not the industry norm. Be “brave” and try it for yourself.
Braveroasters.com is fully in both English and Thai and gives some good information about each coffee.

Order Coffee and Enjoy
This is not an exhaustive list (I left out Lazada because the only coffee kind of worth ordering on there is from Doi Chang) but if you can’t find great coffee on these sites then you should just stick with instant. Just kidding, you should definitely throw that instant out and get brewing with spectacular coffees at home! And why not just have it delivered right to your door?
