American businessman Brian Chandler (Kip Pardue) has a perfect life with a great job and beautiful fiancée. When his boss, renegade coffee mogul Calvert Jenkins (James Brolin) sends him to Thailand to inspect a crop for purchase, Brian meets Ticha (Mamee Nakprasit), a beautiful Bangkok PR executive who has long given up on the prospects of finding love.

At the urging of her old village and her coffee farmer parents, Ticha brings Brian to the coffee fields of Southern Krabi, in the hope that Brian will buy their coffee. As they go from the cosmopolitan bustle of Bangkok to the pristine, white sands beaches of Krabi, their relationship becomes more than just a coffee deal and with the help of some colourful characters, they relearn what they know about life, love and coffee.
