I have been depressed for quite some time. In the evenings, I just get very sad and morose and get very down and cry. That is the terrible part about being depressed – you just have no reason at all to be depressed and you just are. Nothing shifts it, you don’t care about things and it is not good for those around you. So Fhon yesterday got me to get up early and she forced me into going for a motorcycle ride to a coffee shop that was past San Kamphaeng Hot Springs. It was about a 20-minute ride and I really did not want to go but I am glad I did as I found a wonderful coffee shop.
Acaba Coffee is in fact an organic fruit farm that also is I think a roastery for coffee that they plant in another area. The coffee shop is like a structure that reminds me of an old American Church and the inside of the shop is very chic and modern. When we arrived, we noticed Mulberry trees that were full and when we walked inside we were greeted by the staff offering us free Mulberry to eat.
The shop was air-conditioned and was cool. The staff was very friendly so we took a seat and had a look at the menu. They offered a good arrangement of coffee (including Civet as well at 299 baht a cup) and they had cold brew coffee and also an arrangement of teas and fresh juices as well.
The seating was comfortable. We both chose the Iced Latte and we were not disappointed at all. They floated the coffee on top of the Latte and the taste was just superb. It was like I was having a party on my tongue as the coffee was full and had nice chocolate after tone. In fact, it was one of the best coffees I have had for a very, very long time.
I was very impressed at how good the coffee was and I really enjoyed myself. Once we finished the coffee, we went for a walk around the Organic Farm and we had the chance to pick some Mulberry to take home.
Acaba Coffee is off the beaten track and to me it was a really good find. All in all, it was a pleasant afternoon away from home. It is something I would do definitely again just to taste another cup of there coffee. If you are heading off this way to Mae Kampong, stopping here for a hit of java is a must. I highly recommend to do this.
