My wife and I went here after promises of great coffee, but were disappointed with the pleasant but toothless coffee served here. Probably OK if you like black coffee, but we're heathens and like milk in our coffee.

This is the best coffee shop in Chiang Mai. Don't miss it if you are in Chaing Mai. The coffee is origin and you can enjoy a great espresso here.

Locally sourced beans that are roasted by Akha Ama themselves and accompanied by kind and quality Thai service. We thoroughly enjoyed this craft coffee house. Didn't try their food - if there was any - but their lattes and shaken espresso + orange juice 'n peel drink was awesome. We also bought 2 bags of beans that had been roasted... More

One of the many coffee shops that serve local coffee and some nice cakes with free water aside. I have tasted almost all of their coffees and some of the cakes, so take your favourite coffee and you will like it and take any of the cakes, and you will most likely find it too sweet. Cakes are quite large,... More

There are a lot of coffee shops in Chiang Mai. A lot. Some good, some not so good, and some are terrible. When in Chiang Mai we always stay right near Wat Phra Singh and we walked by Akha Ama and the coffee smelt so amazing we just had to go in. Hubby loves his coffee and loved the flat... More

Only serves coffee and a few light pastries so don't go expecting meal. I had the piccolo latte and it was wonderful. Definitely would come back. Prices excellent.

Wonderful atmosphere, Sit in the shade, outside on the garden deck or inside with AC. The owner is from the local hill tribes and his two coffee houses support the village by providing all his coffee.
