    PAGA specializes in single-origin coffee and creative drinks that go beyond simple milk-and-coffee cuppas. The city’s cafe-hopping culture is well-established, and opening a new hangout spot for caffeine enthusiasts can be both tough and rewarding. For Patricia “Pat” Yothinwattnaudom and Gabriel Carol, it has been more of the latter. A shared passion for coffee encouraged the duo to open this venture, with no other aim than to satisfy the city’s craving for quality brews. The thought that people would come to take photos amid the shop’s white-washed minimalist aesthetics (a style that never fails to attract the crowd) never entered their mind. “We didn’t initially plan to make the place look good for photos,” Pat says. “But the designers did a wonderful job and that turned out to be a great thing.”

    All that aside, Pat and Gabriel’s focus is on brewing single-origin beans from Ethiopia into flavorful boosters that are not limited to a simple latte or espresso. Gabriel, a Romanian native, was the champion of the 2017 Romania Brewers Cup and has put his knowledge to great use in creating a line-up of exciting drinks at PAGA.

    The menu is divided into four different categories, ranging from simple milk coffees to juice-mixed refreshments. Classic drinks like cappuccino and long black are available, although they do recommend you try the signatures, Freddo and Paga (both priced at THB 150), before you decide on a favorite. Freddo is a shot of medium-roast espresso topped with whipped milk, while the latter is the opposite - a whipped espresso shot on top of fresh milk.

    Those who don’t fancy milk in their cuppa can go for their fruit-blended options. Fruits and herbs are made into syrup and kombucha-like extracts, and then blended with PAGA’s cold brew. Try Joy (THB 170) if you’re a sucker for the sweet and sour hits of strawberry, or Zuri (THB 170) where bittersweet bael syrup is mixed with coffee and tart kiwi puree.

    PAGA also dedicates one area for a filter coffee session if you're in the mood for something fancier. Currently, the couple has imported six sorts of beans for you to choose, such as Finca Carmen from Panama and Santa Monica from Colombia. The price starts from THB 200. Spirits-injected brews are in the pipeline, and Pat and Gabriel also plan to launch a space on the third floor dedicated to coffee classes and workshops.

    Address: Soi Sukhumvit 31, Bangkok
    Opening hours: Daily from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm. Parking is limited.

    Finding the best roasted coffee in Thailand with Coffee Culture

    Due to all of the changes happening in our daily routines, as coffee lovers, it has become vital to make sure that we have a coffee maker at both our home and our office. Plus, a few packs of delicious fresh roasted coffee to enjoy. Thailand’s demand for shopping for roasted coffee beans and ground coffee online has never been higher. Coffee Culture was born out of love for coffee and its country. An online marketplace for freshly roasted coffee, aimed to connect Thai coffee roasters with coffee drinkers all over Thailand. The platform was built to help local Thai coffee roasters sell their products to both foreigners and Thais around Thailand. Essentially, Coffee Culture bridges the gap between coffee lovers in and around Thailand and local Thai coffee roasters and farmers. Making it easy to find and buy Thailand’sbest coffee beans online. Through Coffee Culture’s unique online marketplace, these local coffee roasters and farmers are able to not only survive financially but also get their products discovered.

    Coffee Culture is the brainchild of Susan Borvornpotsakul, a half Thai and half Finnish female entrepreneur living in Phuket, Thailand. Unsatisfied with the coffee varieties available in most supermarkets, she went on an online quest to order coffee from the northern regions of Thailand. As she is fluent in Thai, it was easy for Susan to discover outstanding local coffee roasters and farmers. It was that discovery that pushed Coffee Culture into existence, as Susan wanted to share her findings with her family and friends who also enjoy a robust cup of coffee.

    From the lockdown, Coffee Culture turned into a full fledged online marketplace and with clever marketing and the offering of great coffee, the business gained momentum. It was evident through daily enquiries that there were many people living in Thailand and abroad who appreciate Thai coffee. Coffee Culture offers coffee subscriptions for both home and office consumption. Our coffee subscription program allows our customers to enjoy the convenience of having fresh coffee delivered straight to their door! With the Coffee Subscription, it is possible to choose your taste preference and decide how often you’d like coffee delivered. Additionally, you can choose the length of the subscription and choose your own coffee beans. In addition to selling fresh coffee beans roasted in Thailand, our online marketplace also has a coffee equipment and accessories shop. We sell all kinds of coffee makers, cold drip stations and accessories needed for your home coffee brewing station.

    Main Market Audience
    Coffee Culture focuses on coffee that can be enjoyed in the comfort of one’s home or office. Through connecting with various local farmers and roasters in Thailand, Coffee Culture is able to offer a large variety of fresh coffee and roasted beans in Thailand. We understand that not all coffee drinkers like the same type of coffee, so whether your taste is more for strong, bitter or smooth coffee, we take our time to guide our customers to find the right roast coffee bean or ground. There is no one taste that fits allin this case. We pride ourselves on making suggestions to our customers with regards to various different coffee blends and beans as well as recommending the right coffee for their taste.

    About Our Coffee Roasters
    While we hold a large variety of our house coffee in order to maintain outstanding and fast customer service. Day by day we source for more local coffee roasters and farmers around Thailand. Coffee Culture’s selection process is stringent, because we want to offer quality coffee alongside outstanding delivery time to our customers.

Plus, we’ve also incorporated payments with Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies. With the changes of the digital world, we are constantly innovating on new product lines, coffee services and integrating new technology. We strive to continuously update our online marketplace so that Thailand’s best coffee is available to consumers. Additionally, we keep in close contact with our clients through newsletters that highlight new products, services and available coffee machines and accessories. Coffee Culture intends to be the go-to online marketplace for coffee lovers, both in Thailand and around the world.

    What is coming next?
    Coffee Culture is still a young company, but we are definitely looking to expand in the future. To be honest, we started with zero capital when we decided to take this project off of the ground. Currently, we are talking with various investors who can help us accelerate our expansion in the future. We firmly believe that a key way to grow our business and continue to help local coffee farmers and roasters is by being able to export the amazing coffee that Thailand produces to the world. Recently, we’ve sent samples to Hong Kong, Australia, Russia and the Caribbeans. While we are taking baby steps at the moment, we are confident that it is just a matter of time until we can grow globally. It is a big aspiration for all of us at Coffee Culture, especially due to the fact that we started our company in the midst of a massive economic struggle.

            Top Local Coffee Shops in Bangkok

            30 years ago, local coffee shops in Bangkok were few and far between. But over the last 20 years, the coffee culture in Bangkok has evolved into a thriving economy. Today more people are developing a taste for coffee and are willing to pay a premium for it. Coffee sales in Thailand have been growing.

              Is Thailand famous for coffee and how good is Thai coffee ?

              Thailand now ranks in the top 15 coffee exporters of coffee in the world. Thai coffee was never really known, but in recent years, international recognition for Thai coffee has rapidly increased. And this time, Thailand isn’t just known for Robusta coffee beans but also Arábica coffee beans. To date, Thailand still exports very little coffee as most of the coffee is consumed within the country, making it very hard to source, especially in bulk amounts. What’s most interesting is that Thailand offers one of the rare origins of coffee where there is a sustainable coffee ecosystem.

It’s just the perfect way to start the day and plan ahead while enjoying a fresh cup of coffee. Coffee is special. At first, it might seem like coffee is addictive, but underneath it all, it does come with a lot of benefits. Coffee creates bonds in society, awareness of news, and jobs for groups of people everywhere. From only drinking coffee once a day early in the morning at a local shop run by Chinese, to a cup brewed fresh at home, another brewed at the office, and an afternoon pleasure at a favorite cafe. Thailand used to be a land of instant coffees, but those days are being pushed further and further away.

                  Individual Coffee Culture in Bangkok 2023

                  Bangkok gets a bad rap for its very sweet drinks (I’m looking at you, Thai iced tea), and their coffee drinks are no exception. But that hardly encompasses the city's entire coffee culture; the coffee shop scene in Thailand overall is nothing to scoff at. Whether you like your blends light or medium, pour over or espresso, even the most uppity coffee snobs jonesing for a good cup can find a perfectly brewed blend in the city, whether from a hipster chic spot or mom and pop cafe. Read on for our picks of Bangkok's best coffee shops and cafes, and plan where to get caffeinated while you're in town.

                  Old Town Café Bangkok
                  Walking into Old Town Cafe from the nearby Grand Palace, you're instantly hit with a sense of calm, thanks to the owner's friendly smile and the light jazz emanating from the sound system. The menu at this small coffee shop ranges from standard drinks to more unusual items, including the Iced Old Town Muddy, a combination of cafe latte with matcha and sugar, and the passion fruit iced tea. Not in the mood for caffeine? Order a fresh juice. Don't pass up a snack, either: Old Town's baguette is incredible—you can try it plain or in sandwich form. There are also fresh croissants and jams.

                  Kaizen Coffee Co.
                  It takes some effort to locate Kaizen, an ultra-minimalist, Melbourne-style coffee shop—it's hidden in Tai Ping Tower, a condominium complex. But it's worth the hunt. The smooth, refreshing Nitro Cold Brew coffee is the most popular drink here; long blacks and flat whites are other staples. If you're not into coffee, try one of the inventive teas or Milo chocolate drinks. And if you're into mochas, go for the Blonde Mocha—it's just the right amount of sweet.

                  Hands and Heart

                  Hands and Heart was the first runner-up for the National Brewers Cup, a reputable coffee competition—and it's no wonder. The owners source single-origin beans from great roasters around the world and hand-brew it themselves using an Aeropress, Chemex, or pour-over. To really hit home the black-and-white theme, they serve white coffee in black cups and black coffee in white cups. And if you're not a coffee fan, go for one of the chocolate drinks or juices.

                  Long windows filter plenty of natural light into Roots, a welcoming space featuring concrete floors, a wooden bar, benches, tables, and a wall decorated with local art. This coffee shop, which draws a reliable crowd of regulars, sources insanely good beans from all over the world, but its pride and joy is local coffee from Northern Thailand. You can't go wrong with the cold brew or filter brew; there are also more indulgent drinks, like peanut butter coffee floats and coffee shakes.

                  Gallery Drip Coffee
                  Located on the first floor of the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, Gallery Drip has a 3D ceiling decoration that catches your eye as soon as you walk in. Wooden shelves hold ceramic coffee mugs that belong to regulars, who get a discount if they use their own cups. The owners select coffee beans from single-source, fair-trade farms in Northern Thailand, Ethiopia, and Yemen, do all the roasting themselves, and hand-grind the beans to order. For a sweet treat, go for the coffee jelly, which is topped with frothy milk and served with sugar on the side.

                  Rocket Coffeebar
                  The original location of Rocket Coffeebar—there are now four—is a hole in the wall with only 27 seats. The shop does single-origin blends as well as four brew styles: pour over, Aeropress regular, Aeropress short, and espresso. All the classics, from macchiatos to affogatos, are made superbly here; there are also oddball (yet delicious) drinks, like a chocolate mojito latte and hot cocoa you make yourself by stirring a chocolate popsicle into steamed milk. The food here is outstanding: cute heart-shaped waffles, Scandinavian open-faced sandwiches, acai bowls, and classic egg dishes.

                  Steps With Theera
                  Steps With Theera may look stark from the outside—white paint, black-framed windows—but it's actually quite warm inside, with gray paint and a lime-green design hand-painted on the walls. Each chair is made from a different type of wood—a visual representation of the uniqueness of each employee in the cafe's special-needs program. There's a large selection of dairy-free coffee drinks and dairy-free fruit smoothies without added sugar; there are also 12 types of conventional coffee.

                  Simple Coffee, Simple Life
                  The outside of Simple Coffee, Simple Life is just as quaint and cute as you'd expect from its name, with small ferns and several tiny outdoor tables. Famous for its dark, strong filtered coffee with a delightfully bitter balance, the shop does the classics right. If you're looking for a trendy pic, though, try the Unicorno, a cappuccino with pink milk foam and rainbow candy sprinkled on top. Another favorite is the Ipanema, a black iced coffee mixed with coconut milk.

                  One of Bangkok's most spacious cafes, Kuppa has two levels and the city's first in-house coffee roaster. The lighting is dim, and colorful artwork sets the tone for the excellent—if a bit pricey—hand-roasted blends from Guatemala, Peru, and Papua New Guinea. If you like your order, you can buy a bag of beans to take home. There's also an extensive menu, but your best bet is to head straight for pastry case and go for a slice of cake.

                  Ceresia Coffee Roasters
                  At Ceresia, located off one of Bangkok's main roads, a bright white exterior and nearly floor-to-ceiling windows feel inviting; the interior, meanwhile, has shiny wood floors and benches, exposed brick, and industrial beams and light fixtures. This coffee shop takes its drinks seriously, sourcing specialty seasonal blends from single-source farms around the world. An extensive menu changes regularly, with each blend roasted in small batches; each coffee is offered in pour-over method or as an espresso. There's no wifi, so bring a book—or some friends.
