Vietnam - the promised land for Robusta coffee
Vietnam is a country with a rich history and culture, located in Southeast Asia. The country's name comes from the former name of the Wiet kingdom, located in this region of Asia. Vietnam is famous for its picturesque landscapes, such as Ha Long bay and Hoi An city, and the associated tourism. The most recognizable person from Vietnam is Ho Chi Minh, the leader and founder of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. Vietnam's tourist attractions and culture have also influenced the development of coffee cultivation, which is now one of the country's main exports. Coffee cultivation in Vietnam began under French colonists, who brought coffee seeds to Dak Lak province in the 17th century. Today, the main coffee-growing regions are South Vietnam and the Central Plateau.
Coffee is grown at altitudes as high as 400 meters above sea level. Robusta coffee varieties are mainly grown in Vietnam, accounting for 30% of the world's Robusta coffee crop. Coffee is an important part of Vietnamese culture, and its preparation and drinking is an important ritual.
Secrets of Dak Lak Province
The coffee on offer comes from Dak Lak province, located in the southern part of Vietnam, in the Central Plateau region. Near the plantation is the Yok Don Nature Reserve, just a few kilometers away, which offers an unforgettable experience for nature lovers. Farmers care about the environment and use sustainable methods of coffee cultivation, which translates into the quality and taste of the product.
Discover the intense taste of Robusta Vietnam Dak Lak
We invite you to discover the extraordinary taste of freshly roasted Robusta coffee from Vietnam. This unique beverage comes from Dak Lak province, where the history of Vietnamese coffee began. Our coffee, roasted on the day of shipment, offers an intense taste of chocolate, herbs and an earthy aftertaste with a slight bitterness that stays long on the tongue. The freshness of the coffee comes from the freshest harvest, which translates into a full-bodied aroma and richness of flavor.
Preparation techniques and impact on flavor
Robusta coffee will work well with a variety of preparation techniques. In a pressurized coffee maker, it will produce the characteristic creamy froth, known as "crema." You can also try alternative methods, such as Turkish-style coffee or Vietnamese coffee with the addition of condensed milk, which softens and sweetens the taste of the coffee. The preparation technique you choose will affect the final taste and experience.
Differences between arabica and robusta coffee
Arabica and robusta coffees are the two main varieties of coffee grown in the world, and each has different characteristics and taste qualities. Here are the most important differences between the two varieties:
1. flavor and aroma
Arabica coffee has a milder flavor, with higher acidity and a richness of aroma. You can detect fruity, floral or caramel notes in it. Robusta coffee, on the other hand, is characterized by a stronger, more intense flavor, lower acidity, but higher bitterness. In its taste you can sense earth, nuts and chocolate.
2. caffeine content
Robusta coffee contains almost twice as much caffeine as arabica, making it more stimulating. The high caffeine content also contributes to its bitter taste. Arabica coffee has less caffeine, but more oils and sugars, resulting in a richer flavor and aroma.
3. growing conditions and altitude
Arabica coffee is more demanding to grow, as it needs higher altitudes (800-2,200 meters above sea level) and a moderate climate with good rainfall. As a result, arabica crops are more prone to pests and diseases. Robusta coffee is more resistant to changing climatic conditions and pests, grows at lower altitudes (0-800 meters above sea level) and produces higher yields.
4. the shape of the beans
Arabica coffee beans are oval, with a pronounced curved groove in the middle, while robusta coffee beans are round and have a straight groove. Arabica beans are usually larger than robusta beans.
In Dak Lak province, both varieties of coffee are grown, allowing for the creation of unique blends that combine the flavor and aromatic qualities of arabica with the intensity and robustness of robusta. Thus, coffee from Dak Lak can satisfy the diverse tastes of lovers of the beverage.
