The story behind Robusta Washed Gr1
Vietnam is a country of smallholder farms, averaging 1-3 hectares, and famers do not process their own coffee here but instead sell red cherry to wet mills, who process the coffee for export. Mercon operates several wet mills in Da Lat and has established strong quality programs at each of them.
Vietnam is the world's largest producer of Robusta, which is generally not considered specialty coffee. However, in recent years there has been a push to experiment with higher quality Robusta harvests, creating better coffees that can stand on their own in the specialty sphere.Download Robusta Washed Gr1 Info Sheet
