Finding Something?

Mekong’s Liquid Gold

We like dreamers. Dreamers – they change the world, or so that famous saying goes. They are the best of conversationalists, the hardest of workers. On top of their gift of gab, they have the most endearing of personalities. The guys behind Luang Prabang’s best coffee are such, and it was our good fortune to have made their acquaintance. Read on to know more about Saffron Coffee.

Great things can only come from great passion. And, coffee at Saffron Coffee is nothing else but that – great. Saffron coffee is the kind of coffee you travel miles and climb mountains for. Trust us when we say this, ‘cause we’ve never said the same about another ever before.

Meticulous care goes into their beans from the ground to the cup. Their commitment to making the world a better place, a community at a time, shows through in the stellar quality of their coffee. Saffron Coffee has gone to great lengths to equip their coffee farming communities with the know-how, the tools, and the mindset to grow premium quality Arabica. They are not simply in the business of serving coffee; they are providing marginalized hill tribe communities with otherwise-inaccessible economic opportunities, too. It is seldom that we come across a social enterprise that is borne out of a genuine concern for humanity. It just seems like a huge plus, that no other coffee shop does Lao coffee the way they do it.

From the bean to the cup, Saffron Coffee ensures their coffee and their communities receive TLC.
