  3. Love the show, and love the northern Thai Arabica coffee grown by the local Karen hill-tribes in the mountains about halfway between Chiang Mai and the Burma border. Hope that you get to sample some of the Burmese Arabica coffee that’s grown in the mountains around the town of Maymyo.

  5. I love watching this show. My grandpa used to own a coffee and nut roasting business. I can relate to to flinging those big bags of coffee when I was a kid!

  10. What is the symbolism of your logo? Is it a dove? The dove of peace? Inquiring minds want to know. Love your show as it reminds me of a lot of the places I’ve visited.

    • Yes, it is inspired by Picasso’s Dove of Peace drawings, and it sits on top of a coffee bean surrounded by coffee branches.

    Recent convert to the trueness of the Arabica. Watched one episode and was hooked, started doing my own research and have only began to understand the complexities of a great bean. Always on the look out for more info. Hope to catch up with you and Hollywood one day, till then, cio.

    Todd, I am a fan of your show and I absolutely enjoy it. Sometimes I get scared that you put yourself in dangerous situations. Please be careful. Just watching your show has made me begin to love coffee more and more and I want to try out those good quality coffee you get from every trip.
    Thanks for all you do.
