THE CENTRAL HIGHLANDS AROUND DA LAT LA COFFEE PARADISE
The central highlands of Vietnam offer ideal conditions for the cultivation of high
-grade Arabica coffee beans. French colonialists introduced Arabica coffee beans to Vietnam in the 1800s. In the 1990s, when the country’s agricultural land was controlled by the Vietnamese government, the establishment of Robusta coffee plant ations was promoted in the Central Highlands. Arabica trees were cut down and replaced with high-yield and more resistant Robusta trees. As a result, the country is the largest producer of Robusta coffee today. Vietnamese Robusta beans are most often used in blends and as instant coffee.
Less than 5% of Vietnam’s crop are Arabica beans. Nowadays it is unlikely to find Vietnamese Arabica beans in specialty coffee shops around the world. Quang Tran and his team are aware of this. They are passionate about their local Arabica beans and make it their priority to promote specialty coffee culture in Vietnam and beyond. “The best coffee in Vietnam can be found in the mountain paradise around Da Lat”, says Quang Tran.
