Jhai Coffee: Champassak, Laos

“The Lao word ‘Jhai’ means heart, and truly there couldn’t be a better word to describe this coffee. Lao people lead with their hearts and our roasting team and I are proud to share this rare coffee with you.”

– Tyson Adams (Founder, JHAI Coffeehouse)

Located on the Bolaven Plateau in Laos, 2454 families, in 64 villages, make up the Jhai Coffee Farmer’s Cooperative. This coffee is all about empowerment. With diseases related to poor hygiene being the number two killer of Lao children under five years old, Jhai Coffee directly supports the installation of clean water wells and hygiene programs at schools in the region. Additionally, Jhai has implemented farmer education and technical infrastructure to enable the community to receive the maximum earnings for their hard work.
