west elm has worked in collaboration with Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-based company La Colombe — a premier coffee roaster known for its responsible sourcing practices — since 2012 when west elm Market opened in the Dumbo neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. Now with 6 west elm stores worldwide serving La Colombe coffee, we’re thrilled to be a part of La Colombe founder Todd Carmichael’s second season of the Travel Channel’s series Dangerous Grounds.


Part of the appeal of working with Todd and La Colombe is Todd’s focus on finding the best coffee in the world. In a new episode of Dangerous Grounds — the series that documents Todd’s travels around the globe in search of rare coffee — west elm President Jim Brett asks Todd for a Thai coffee that would offer a unique complement to west elm’s collection of home goods.

“The Doi Chaang Peaberry is a rare single-estate, certified organic, shade grown, hand picked, fresh water washed and sun-dried specialty coffee. The estate is a passion project spearheaded by John M. Darch, a man with limitless drive to convert a down-on-its-luck village in Northern Thailand from oppressive opium farming to the farming and processing of coffee.”
