In 1962, Mr. Chira introduced “Khao Shong Coffee” to the market. He used “Khao Shong” as the brand to recollect the place where the coffee beans were originally found. Within a few years, Khao Shong Coffee, with its unique flavor and aroma, became popular and well recognized among the coffee drinkers in Thailand.
Besides the success in developing the advanced instant coffee production technology, Khao Shong is very keen in selecting only the finest and highest quality of the Thai Robusta coffee beans whose sensory characters are unique with their intense aroma and taste. More importantly, Khao Shong is committed to using only domestically grown coffee beans as a mission to support Thai coffee farmers, even though the price of the domestic beans is higher than that of the imported ones.
many recognizable internationally certified organizations including GMP, ISO 9001, HACCP, HALAL, and Thailand Trust Mark. The Green Industry and ISO 14001 have also endorsed us for our achievement in having our manufacturing processes environmentally friendly.
Robustatrees are resistant to various climate conditions, however they specifically prefer warmer climates with high humidity where temperature ranges from 20-30 Cº. They can be grown on a plain of an altitude up to 1,200 meters above the sea level. Robusta trees are mostly grown in the southern part of Thailand from Prachuap Khiri Khan province downwards. They are also grown in some northern part of Thailand, i.e. in Uttaradit and Phrae provinces.
Once roasted, Robusta mightbe less aromatic than Arabica, however they contain,approximately,double the caffeine leveland give higher production yield compared to that from Arabica beans.
All Khao Shong coffee products are made from 100% Thai premium Robusta that are grown domestically as we are highly committed to our mission to supportthe Thai farmers for their better income, better livings and, hopefully, Thailand’s economy overall.
