You can change the world daily - and it starts with coffee.
Lanna believes the products that we buy on a daily basis have the ability to make our world better. With each bag purchased, we contribute funds for clean water projects in Thailand. The amount contributes to about 40 gallons of clean water generated per 12 oz. bag purchased.
This means that each day that you brew Lanna Coffee, you are making our world better.
In 2019, Lanna Coffee Co. will fund a clean water system that will provide over 7 million gallons of clean water that will be accessed by villagers over the next 20 years. Lanna Coffee Co works directly with our partners in Northern Thailand to help identify and build the water system alongside of the villagers. Providing clean water leads to healthier lives for each family member and increased opportunity for the hill tribe peoples living in these areas.
OUR MISSION: To help farmers in Thailand gain independence by growing incredible coffee and matching consumers who love to change the world through small/simple acts.
OUR PATH: Roast and ship excellent coffee that funds clean water projects to those who have no access.
WHY YOU ARE IMPORTANT
Water is a basic human right yet over 650 million people in the world do not have access to clean water. * Imagine having to spend half of your day collecting contaminated water on foot from nearby streams and then repeating this over and over again every week…. The time it takes to gather water and the potential contamination hazards within this water lead to decreased opportunities to help support your family unit and sickness for everyone.
We work with our partner Integrated Tribal Development Program (ITDP) to help meet the need for access to clean water and latrines in Northern Thailand.
ITDP has been working with the Northern Hill Tribes in Thailand for 25 years officially but has long since been an advocate for sustainable change.
It takes a village
The why is important to Lanna Coffee Co but it works better with a partnership between the producers (farmers/villages in Thailand) and the consumers (YOU!). We are the link between the two and are proud to be able to bring the hard work that is put in daily on the farms here to the United States.

THIS IS HOW YOU BECOME THE HERO
For each bag of coffee you purchase, funds are sent to our partner to raise support for the next water project. Our goal is to fund the project with the highest need on an annual basis.
For each 12 oz bag purchased = Enough water for 1 person for 12 days!For each 2.2 lb purchased = Enough for a family of 4 for 9 days!
Coffee is not only a product that fuels us but one that is a tool to create a positive impact for generations.
Thank you for considering Lanna as your daily brew that gives back with every sip you take.
In 1959, the Manns founded the Integrated Tribal Development Program, an NGO headquartered in Lanna Village in Chang Mai province. Slowly, partnering with one village at a time, the Program expanded its reach and impact. Today, over 40 villages grow coffee beans as part of the first fair trade coffee co-op in Thailand. The Integrated Tribal Development Program together with The Lanna Foundation, provides clean water, healthcare and agricultural opportunities to villages throughout Thailand with the proceeds from the coffee we roast and sell.
400 farms In Northern Thailand are 100% farmer-owned. We deal directly with these farmers who supply us with a single source, pesticide-free coffee. Won’t you join us on this rewarding meaningful journey? Like so many relationships, it starts with a cup of coffee.
