Today’s questions all come from Dr. Mack in Bangkok, Thailand. Even though he is asking the question on behalf of coffee producers in Thailand, I wanted to answer them on the podcast because they are relevant to all of the newer coffee producing regions.

Thailand didn’t export coffee until 1976!

This is very recent and not a lot of time for coffee growers and producers to develop their craft and catch up with older coffee growing regions like Colombia, where I am living. Colombia was already exporting coffee in 1835.

As new regions begin to grow coffee, the questions in this podcast will become more and more relevant.

Dr. Mack's questions allow me to address a few things like:

  • How to avoid fermentation during transportation from the farm to mill
  • How to use yeast with rust resistant varieties
  • How to do a honey or a natural process while avoiding mold growth (a common problem in humid tropical countries)
