Product Details

Starbucks® Muan Jai™ Blend

We created our first blend featuring Thai coffee to celebrate the exceptional quality of beans grown in the hills of northern Thailand. Peppery, full-bodied and balanced with lingering earthy spiciness, this coffee represents the best of the region, and our farm-direct purchasing promotes the economic well-being of those who grow it. In the dialect of hill tribe farmers "muan jai" means wholehearted happiness - a sense of pride you'll taste in every cup. Available only in its origin country and exclusively in the US online at Starbucks Store.

How to Brew

Recipe for great coffee

  1. Use cold, filtered water and a clean machine.
  2. Grind beans just before brewing:
    • Course for coffee press
    • Medium for automatic drip
  3. Measure 2 tbsp (10 g) ground coffee for every 6 fl oz (180 ml) water.

To help preserve that fresh flavor, keep this bag sealed tight in a cabinet (not in the refrigerator) and brew within a week of opening.

The Starbucks Roast

Each coffee requires slightly different amounts of time and temperature during the roasting process to create a cup at its peak of aroma, acidity, body and flavor. We classify our coffees in three roast profiles so you can easily find your desired flavor and intensity.

  • Blonde: Blonde-roasted coffees have a shorter roast time, lighter body and mellow flavors.
  • Medium: Medium-roasted coffees are balanced with smooth and rich flavors.
  • Dark: Dark-roasted coffees feature a fuller body and robust, bold flavors.

Did You Know?

This coffee debuted as a Thailand exclusive in 2003. Muan Jai means “wholehearted happiness” in Kum-Mueang, a language of northern Thailand. The Thai component of this coffee is produced by coffee farmers from the hill tribes of Northern Thailand and representatives from the hill tribes attended the launch event of this coffee in Thailand.
