Omkoi region is located in the hilly area near Chiang Mai, a province in northern Thailand. Back in the days, Karen population shifted to farming, which caused deforestation. They were also involved in cultivating opium, which increased the forest destruction. King Rama IX developed a project that eventually changed their career. They were encouraged to plant coffee instead, giving the Arabica seeds to start plantation of Thai Arabica under large trees (Agroforestry system). Omkoi district is influenced by rain and high elevations, and a 1000m above sea level is where the Arabica plants thrive.
