B&W Illustrations; Small 8vo 7½" - 8" tall; 169 pages; Doi Chaang is a fair trade coffee company which is partially owned by the people who grow and cultivate the plants. "The Doi Chang Village community sits on a mountainous hillside within the Chiang Rai province of Northern Thailand and the coffee plantation covers more than 6000 acres and is surrounded by lush old forest growth, fresh flowing spring water and breathtaking mountain views. With the high altitudes, ideal climate and perfect soil conditions, Doi Chang Village is one of the premium regions of the world to cultivate and process Arabica coffee.The majority of farming families in Doi Chang Village are of Akha heritage. Rich in culture and tradition, the farmers have no official written language but do maintain a detailed oral history and live life according to the “Akha Way,” a spiritual, moral and social philosophy that governs behaviour and emphasizes strong ties to land and family. Like many of the hill tribe communities of Northern Thailand, the Akha hill tribe of Doi Chang have struggled with isolation and poverty. As self-sufficient and self directed coffee producers, the Akha people of Doi Chang Village are able to maintain their heritage and cultural values, while providing economic stability and growth for their community. Many of the youth are now receiving higher levels of education and returning to their Akha roots in Doi Chang Village to share in the prosperity of the coffee company."
