FUADI PITSUWAN of BEANSPIRE
Fuadi Pitsuwan of Beanspire is producing some of the first specialty grade coffees from Thailand to see United States soil. We are proud to be in our 3rd year of partnership, sharing in the unique experience of the Thai terroir.
Beanspire Coffee is a green coffee exporting company and cooperative. They assist Thai coffee farmers in developing and exporting high quality green coffees to the international specialty coffee market. You can view them as coffee community organizers, providing smallholder farms with the ability to produce innovative and delicious coffee at a higher price point. This is inherently important in Thailand. In Thailand, the coffee production market is suffering due to many young entrepreneurs having a desire to move to the inner city and find careers in tech and business. It, likely, pays better and provides a clearer path to success. Fuadi, however, has worked hard to communicate that specialty coffee is also an option for young men and women looking to start a career. By bucking the trend of low grade, commodity coffee, he has helped create new processing methods that help producers find a sustainable career in coffee.
