Part 2 of our 5 Handcrafted Coffee shops in Chiang Mai article. As we stated before Chiang Mai’s coffee scene is always expanding and growing every day. New Shops to small shacks are opening up regularly. Here’s a short list of shops we think you should visit.
A Day in Chiang Mai
Inspired by coffee that was brought from South Korea from by a friend, A day in Chiang Mai is meant to be a coffee lovers refuge. A cozy handcrafted coffee shop that’s almost hidden and if you do not look out you will miss it. A love for a coffee house style atmosphere, the owner, loves interacting and conversing with customers on all things coffee. He is eager to hear feedback on his brews or answer any questions you have about his coffee and process. This shop offers Aeropress and drip coffee and carries a Seasonal Menu that changes.
A Day in Chiang Mai’s imported Coffee beans come from roasters in South Korea and Japan, and the Thai coffee comes from Fieow roaster. Every Friday is Black Friday, which means that this shop only serves black coffee on Fridays. The owner believes the best coffee should be tasted without any cream or sugar added to get the real authentic taste of coffee.
Right next to his shop a New bakery owned by his sister just opened up named “Live A Day.”

The newest shop on this list! Kaffe Man This is a project of pure love that develops from a simple hobby to an obsession. Kaffe man carries his blend of roasted coffee. It was roasted to have a peanut aroma. The styles of handcrafted offered at this coffee shop are AeroPress, Pour over drip, and Vintage Cold drip.

Hana Zono Cafe
Open for four years now, Hana Zono is a Japanese inspired café. Hana Zono’s goal is to be a welcoming and warm café that seamlessly integrates with the surrounding o community. A place where friends come to meet over a cup of coffee. Hana Zono offers different styles of handcrafted coffee but loves to use the simple Japanese style drip coffee method. They also import most of their coffee from a roaster Japan. Each coffee bean style is hand-picked, tested and consumed in Japan by the owner before being brought back to Chiang Mai.
They do also carry their house blend which is composed of six sources of different Northern Thai coffee beans. Shizuka, the name of the house blend is the pride of Hana Zono Café. On a personal note, I thought the croissants here were delicious!

Nowhere Roast and Brew
True to its name, I walked by this place twice before I found it. The shop may be small, but they are true to the word handcrafted coffee as any other shop you will see. Nowhere Roast and Brew uses locally sourced Thai beans that they chose themselves from local farms and roasts them on a what I can only describe as a small table top size roaster.
This shop uses the Aeropress and pour-over drip coffee for light roasted coffee. The Trinity press is used for medium roast coffee.
The owner just came back from joining Akha Ama’s “Long Project. This trip lasted for almost two weeks at Mae Jantai Village in Chiang Rai. Here he got to experiment with the whole coffee process and is planning to announce a new project soon. So, keep yourself updated by following Nowhere Roast and Brew on Facebook.
