Ristr8To Coffee – Chiang Mai, Thailand


Ristr8To Coffee (adapted from the name ‘Ristretto’ which means a shorter espresso) is one of the most talked about cafe in Chiang Mai and probably Thailand. As a matter of fact, people in the coffee industry probably know this place as well. Reason because of the owner and head barista, Arnon is to date the only Thai that made it to the 6th place in the World Latte Art Championships in 2011, which was held in Netherlands.
