The Origin is a project under Akha Ama Coffee to enhance living quality in coffee communities. The coffee variety, cultivation, harvesting, processing, postharvest management and coffee farmer are not less important than cup quality.

Establishing sustainable ways to return home for young folks are very encouraging because they are the one who replacing elder farmers or their parents. This is community based approach for local development by considering all stakeholders involvement.
