    Under-rated in Thailand..... Coffee Shops

    So I'm not much of a coffee drinker..... I don't drink coffee in the morning and usually don't drink it all.....maybe a cappuccino every few months.

    But I got into going to coffee shops to have a cappuccino everyday when I was in Thailand. I'm a bit hyper and it is hard for me to just relax and settle down. And going to the coffee shop everyday just set me in a mode to just slow down for the day.

    And man....are there some good coffee shops in Thailand! Very nice places, great cappuccino and great service!
    Especially the coffee shop next to the Hua Hin Hilton that has been there for ages.
    S&P that are in all those gas station stops along the highway are good also. My wife says they actually make very good food also.....but I've never tried.

    Also.....I only like drinking coffee out of a proper mug.....not paper cups.

    It is something that I have noticed a huge growth in up in Chiang Mai over the last few years. There are now coffee shops everywhere. Some better than others, but it is nice to see them around. Especially on my daily walks, almost taking over from my lunch time beer 555

    There is a coffee plantation in Chiang Rai (Doi Chang?) which looks like a good day out. I'm not really a coffee drinker tbh but would still go for the scenery.

    Don't get your hopes up Dupree...an American that doesn't drink coffee often rating coffee. It's on a similar level to Boston. 555

    There are some good shops, yet it is really hit and miss for good espresso coffee. Over-heated milk and sweetened condensed milk are the common spoilers.

    Ha....you could have a point there 555

    Isn't the condensed milk more of the local Street coffee places? I know they load it up in those.

    I'm a bit of a coffee snob the coffee in Thailand and the rest of Asia for that matter is rubbish.

    I drink those small short blacks, Cappuccino's and all those coffees with milk hide the crap coffee. When you drink it straight if its not good coffee its really not good.

    You can find a few good shops but very hard to find if your fussy. Did find a nice one in Chiang mai old town a few trips back.

    When in Thailand I rather drink the black ice coffee.

    I can thoroughly recommend the "Black Canyon" coffee shop in Jungceylon Phuket.
    Near the back, just past the Irish pub.
    Went there most days last trip (2015).
    Great coffee, good range of food with service. Prices reasonable too
    And where the hell was Biggles.....?....when you needed him last Saturday....?
