July 31, 2013 Destination Thailand No Comments Email Email

The talented and creative Food and Beverage Team at Paresa Resort in Phuket, have once again emphasized Paresa as a creator of unique and desirable experiences by being the first property in Phuket, and one of just a few places around the world offering Black Ivory Coffee to its guests.

Black Ivory Coffee is the world’s rarest and most unique coffee are now served in Paresa

The unique coffee launched in both Diavolo and Talung Thai Restaurants at Paresa from 25th July 2013.

Black Ivory Coffee is the world’s rarest and most unique coffee, it is very special because the 100% Arabica beans, grown in Thailand, have been refined by an elephant. The Elephants eat and pass the beans, which are then collected, prepared and roasted. This natural process creates a very soft tea like quality without any bitterness.

It takes 33 kg to make 1 kg of Black Ivory Coffee and only 300 kg have been produced for 2013. Ten years in the making, Canadian founder and owner Blake Dinkin personally, and with enthusiastic passion trained the food and beverage staff at Paresa.

The machine used to make the coffee was invented in 1840 in Austria and was the traditional way to brew coffee until the end of the Second World War. It is recognized as the best way to brew coffee because it keeps the steam at 93C, which is the ideal temperature for coffee extraction.

Scot Toon, General Manager of Paresa states “ I was very impressed with the chocolate and cherry aroma together with the subtle coffee flavor, indeed the entire process of making the Black Ivory Coffee is an amazing creation and something that our guests are lucky to experience“.

Paresa, has established a wonderful reputation in Thailand for its Corporate Social Responsibility, strongly supporting both The Good Shepherd Charity with its annual “ Six of the Best “ event and also more recently in collaboration with famed chef David Thompson of Nahm and The Soi Dog Foundation. This ethos continues as a portion of the proceeds of sales of Black Ivory Coffee help pay the salary of an elephant veterinarian at the Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation as well as for medicine to treat sick elephants.
