Proud to be named in Bon Appétit as a "Top 10 Online Specialty Food Store"
Our Elephant Reserve single origin Thai Coffee comes to us by way of Thu Pham, the superwoman behind Càphê, Philadelphia's only Vietnamese roastery. It also comes to us by way of an Elephant park, but I’ll get to that in a bit.
We partnered with Thu to offer this light roasted, clean, nutty single origin coffee. I’ve been drinking it without sugar and milk, and adore the tea-like clean taste.
You are welcome to add milk and sugar. Tastes delish either way. Elephant Reserve is whole bean coffee, so you will need a grinder.
Okay, now for the elephant story.
The arabica beans come from 5,000 feet above sea level in Pa Miang, Thailand, which is home to Elephant Nature Park. ENP created a coffee initiative to rescue endangered elephants and to support local villagers.
The park provides the initial coffee plants to the villages and teaches farming and processing techniques. The coffee has created many jobs, especially for marginalized women.
I visited this region of Thailand several years ago, and took photos of the elephants. They say an elephant never forgets, but I never forgot watching these massive creatures up close, taking a bath at sunrise. Thought you might enjoy seeing a few of my elephant snaps, so I included them in the listing.
Please allow 4 - 5 business days for us to pack and ship orders during peak season. Due to the holiday volume, the carriers may take longer to deliver packages as well.
We put together a Holiday Shipping FAQs page if you’d like more details on what to expect.
Due to the pandemic, FedEx is no longer guaranteeing Overnight and 2 Day services, though they should arrive more quickly than other options. Remember, these items too require processing time, but we will ship these out first each day.
