The story begins with a farmer in Northern Thailand. His grandfather moved from Southern China to Thailand to grow opium, hoping to capture a piece of the lucrative opium trade between Great Britain and China. Two generations cultivated this nutritious rich soil, carefully tending the opium plants as they emerged from the soil. Then the land was passed from grandfather and father to grandson.
After an encounter with Jesus, the grandson had a new dream and new vision for the land. A dream to redeem this well toiled land and grow a legal product, organic coffee beans. He wanted to plant seeds of justice in the soil of injustice.
After several years of redeeming the land..
two stories collided in this once mother of opium highlands. Jeff, a Vineyard pastor, who had just opened a coffee shop in Rayong, was on the search for the right fit for his coffee dream: To buy single origin coffee beans grown in the rich nutritious soil of Northern Thailand, from a farmer he could trust. A farmer than believed that what he grew was as important as how he grew it.
The two met each other and the rest is history.
