My Pride, My Thai part 34: Km38


By now, it should perhaps be the worst kept secret ever, but my fascination with coffee in Thailand still spirals each time I’m there. I guess there might be a medical name for my condition or obsession, such as coffee-aholic or something. The next coffee place to share with my readers is called J’s Coffee.†

Yet another coffee place I just had to visit during my days in Bangkok was located to the north of the city, near kilometer-marker 38 at Rangsit. It’s placed at the side of one of the busiest roads out of Bangkok for people travelling north, hence gets a lot of visitors during it’s hours of operation. That is, if they manage to spot the place well in advance, and find a way to turn off the busy highway. I would presume that the majority of visitors are those that previously has seen the place and knows where it is located.†


The place is built up using two, used (recycled) 40 foot shipping containers and places right besides another used shipping container-venue called Madame Fruit. The staff was great, and very curious as to why I stopped: a foreigner! †The coffee was also superb, naturally, and I actually thought it was really nice to sit by the big glass-windows in air condition, drinking coffee and looking at the neverending, massive flow of traffic in and out of Bangkok.†


Even though it takes a while to get there from downtown, this will still be a preferred place for me, ahead of those countless coffee shops located in various malls throughout Bangkok, and Thailand. Also, I perosnally think that the service tends to be proportionally better the further from downtown you get.†
