Coffee Shops in Chiang Mai
Thailand has some damn good coffee you just have to know where to look. Also make sure you order the right thing; a lot of Thais, and too many farangs, get Nescafe. There's no need to do that; the real thing is grown in-country, and is much better (and usually cheaper) than the dried instant rot.
If in doubt, try out some Thai: kaafae thung is "bag coffee", "which refers to the traditional method of preparing a cup of coffee by filtering hot water through a bag-shaped cloth filter," says our trusty LP. You'll probably sound silly, but eventually you and your server will sort it out, and you'll gain a couple of points for attempting the language.
2 places that have the Claudia/Anthony seal of approval (2 shots up):
Be sure to try "Wawee" coffee as well delicious stuff. Enjoy.
