Jhai Coffee House is the world’s first completely philanthropic coffee roaster & cafe located at the source. All business profits are generated and then invested into children's hygiene education and clean water projects in the local Lao coffee growing community.
We believe access to clean water is a fundamental human right; our mission is to help bring 1400 families on the Bolaven Plateau sanitary education and clean water by the end of 2014.
In October of 2013, we landed in Paksong and began construction on Jhai's artisan cafe and roaster. Two months later, the cafe was open and we've been roasting coffee, serving customers and running plantation tours ever since.
