Testing for coffee.... I remember that once upon a time you were happy if you could just get a cup of instant Nescafe & some evaporated milk. But nowadays there's been an explosion of the coffee scene & cool funky coffee shops. There are some real beauties out there, & a few lemons of course. But I thought why not have a thread for your recommended good coffee stops on the Mae Hong Son Loop.... And what got me going about this was Suan Mokfa on R1095. I stopped in there on the way home from Pai a few days ago & had what I thought was the best coffee ever. Maybe I was too hungry, tired, thirsty but the coffee just seemed to melt in my mouth like honey. It tasted that good - a cappuccino it was too. Now so impressed I was that I rode back out their today just for a cuppa or two & a quick meal. SUAN MOKFA What you see from the road. No name in English, but just look for the Organic Coffee Signs. On R1095, 250 metres west of the Mokfa Waterfall turn off / Pankled Coffee The boss & owner providing first class TLC for his superb organic coffee The family grounds My cuppa, somewhat already soiled & damn good again it was! Somebody enjoying her cuppa They do nice very tasty food too. Clean, smart presentation & it tastes as as good as it looks. A new dish for me that I liked the look of in the photo Kow Yam Pak Tai & how you eat it. & the taste was sensational. It is definitely different & delights the taste buds with various fresh flavours. I will be back for more! The distance from Mae Rim 35 kms & it is worth it!! I shall return.
