Description

Most of the areas of Mae Hong Son Province in northern Thailand are the complex mountain ranges of the Thai highlands, parts of which are still covered with rain forest. Of the approximately 6,976,650 rai (1600 square meters) of national forest reserves, it is estimated that 88 percent is pristine virgin forest

Huey Mai Dtam is our coffee from this region.

 Huey Mai Dtam” translates to Blackwood Stream. Located in Mae Hong Son Province, Northern Thailand. Farms are located at 1200 – 1300 meters, the elevation and cloud cover are too much for traditional agricultural crops. When coffee cultivation was introduced, it was a great boon for these four villages and the surrounding area. Numerous families are now able to develop economically. These are shade grown, arabica, high density beans that are one of our favorites from Thailand. From a practical view of agriculture these coffees are organically grown, and the farmers are paid a price far above fair-trade standard.

Legend

Up until the close of the Civil war, coffee was sold green. It had to be roasted on a wood stove or in a skillet over a campfire before it could be ground and brewed. One burned bean ruined all; there was no consistency.

In 1865 John Arbuckle and his brother Charles, partners in a Pittsburgh grocery business, changed all this by patenting a process for roasting and coating coffee beans with an egg and sugar glaze to seal in the flavor and aroma.

Marketed under the name ARBUCKLES’ ARIOSA COFFEE in patented, airtight, one pound packages, the new coffee was an instant success with chuck wagon cooks in the west faced with the task of keeping Cowboys supplied with plenty of hot coffee out on the range. ARBUCKLES’ ARIOSA COFFEE packages bore a yellow label with the name ARBUCKLES’ in  large red letters across the front, beneath which flew a Flying Angel trademark over the words ARIOSA COFFEE in black letters. Shipped all over the country in sturdy wooden crates, one hundred packages to a crate, ARBUCKLES’ ARIOSA COFFEE became so dominant in the west that many Cowboys  were  not  aware  there  was  any other  brand.  

Keen  marketing  minds, the Arbuckle Brothers printed signature coupons on the bags of coffee redeemable for all manner of notions including handkerchiefs, razors, scissors and wedding rings. To sweeten the deal, each package of ARBUCKLES’ contained a stick of peppermint candy. Due to the demands on chuck wagon cooks to keep ready supplies of hot ARBUCKLES’ on hand around the campfire, the peppermint stick became a means by which that steady coffee supply was ground. Upon hearing the cook’s call, “Who wants the candy?” some of the toughest Cowboys on the trail were known to vie for the opportunity of manning the coffee grinder in exchange for satisfying a sweet tooth. 

Today thanks to the folks at ARBUCKLE, the Cowboys’ favorite, ARBUCKLES’ ARIOSA COFFEE, is available once more. Complete with the original Flying Angel trade mark, these one pound packages of rich beans are every inch the full-bodied, aromatic coffee you get from ARBUCKLES’.  There’s even a stick of peppermint inside each bag! No longer just a fond memory for a dwindling breed of old-time cowmen, ARBUCKLES’ ARIOSA COFFEE is back as good as ever.

Mornings on a Montana ranch

South of the clouds blend has a unique flavor. My cowboy husband seems to think of prickly pear when we sip in the fresh Montana air. He said he's not sure, but really to get another delicious bag in the future. Has said we may have to take another trip to Arizona this winter and maybe swing for a local pick up and some prickly pear jelly.
