Coffee's Role in Vietnam
Considered one of Southeast Asia’s most beautiful countries, Vietnam is renowned for its lush mountains, bustling cities, and gold sand beaches. Since Arabica beans grow best in high altitudes, the beautiful mountains in the central highlands and the Lang Biang plateau provide fertile ground for growing.
Introduced by the French in the 1800s, coffee production was and still is a major source of income for the country. Thanks to plantations, the industry exploded, and in the last 30 years has put Vietnam on the coffee map as the second largest producer in the world. Although coffee production in Vietnam is mostly made up of Robusta beans, there has been a focus in the country to expand its high-quality Arabica production by innovating with different growing and processing practices.
