Local Prem Coffee’s Sustainable Practices

Local Prem Coffee is a student run initiative that is run almost exclusively by IBCP students. Over the last 5 years the students have developed, modified, expanded and driven the pathway of the business, investing profits into a wider range of products, as this year’s students put their mark on the business.

The two main suppliers of Local Prem Coffee’s pop-up cafe – Kozé – are ThaiHigh Coffee and Saimaya Chocolate. Both businesses are based in Chiang Mai and work directly with local farmers. This week we took our annual fact finding and product search trip to both organisations.

Students got to witness the coffee roasting process, develop new cold coffee drinks recipes and have a go at making their own chocolate bars. Students also selected some new fab products to sell at the Wednesday morning break pop-up coffee shop. With the addition of a new chocolate fridge, students selected to stock 3 large chocolate bars in addition to the small bars we already stock, choosing a dark chocolate mint crunch bar, dark chocolate, mango and chilies and a milk chocolate banana crunch bar. Popcorn has also been added to the product menu.

Further to this the development of the events pop-up coffee shop – Kozé Catering will be launched very soon.

Come over on Wednesday to try our coffee, pastries and snacks and support this fabulous student enterprise.
