Canadian Coffee Company Celebrates Ten Years of Successful, Unique Business Model

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Vancouver April 11, 2017) – Doi Chaang Coffee cele­brates ten years of their unique and ground­breaking busi­ness model by releasing their first new blend in four years.

Doi Chang village today, compared to when Vancouver company Doi Chaang Coffee began their “50% Grower Owned” busi­ness model ten years ago, is almost unrec­og­niz­able. Doi Chang, previ­ously impov­er­ished and heavily involved in the opium trade, is now a self-sustained and flour­ishing village equipped with wifi, a teak coffee house, a coffee academy and main­tained roads inviting tourists up the moun­tain.

“Our rela­tion­ship with the Doi Chang Village farmers was not moti­vated by the usual busi­ness approach of maxi­mizing returns with minimal invest­ment” says John M. Darch, co-founder of Doi Chaang Coffee “It really stemmed from our desire to help a village that despite all their dedi­ca­tion and deter­mi­na­tion had not been successful in helping them­selves. With the help of our customers across North America, we have been able to give back and support or local and global commu­nity”.

In cele­bra­tion of the success of the Akha people of Doi Chang Village and the North Americans that support the company, Doi Chaang Coffee is pleased to present “Buzzin’”, a bright, fruity break­fast blend. In this blend, their signa­ture Thai beans mingle with beans from Guatemala, Peru and Sumatra for a perfectly balanced, ethical cup.

Customers can find this anniver­sary blend online and in retailers across Canada. For a full store list, visit
