Types of coffee in Vietnam

Coffee is grown in the Central Highlands such as Kon Tum, Gia Lai, Dak Lak... in very large quantities.

Currently, coffee trees are grown in more than 50 countries around the world, including some coffee exporting countries. Especially Vietnam, we have a very large amount of coffee exports. In 2009, Brazil was the world's largest coffee producer, followed by Vietnam, Indonesia and Colombia.

Arabica coffee beans are grown in Latin America, East Africa, the Arabian peninsula or Asia. Robusta coffee beans are grown extensively in West and Central Africa, much of Southeast Asia and to some extent Brazil. Bringing great value in the proportion of import and export of the whole country. Coffee beans are obtained from the seeds of plants belonging to the coffee family (Rubiaceae). Currently, there are three main lines of coffee trees:

Raw Arabica coffee: tea coffee, Blue Mountain coffee.
Canephora raw coffee (Robusta): Robusta coffee.
Excelsa raw coffee (Liberia): jackfruit coffee.

What types of coffee are there?

The new processing method is the difference between Arabica and Robusta.

Arabica fruit is harvested, then fermented (soaked in water to bloom...) then washed and dried. So the taste of Arabica is slightly sour. This is also considered a distinctive feature of this coffee. People often compare that sour taste to when we eat lemon, it will be very sour. But immediately felt the bitter taste of the peel. The way to feel the sour taste of coffee is the same.
Robusta coffee
Grown at an altitude of less than 600m, the climate is tropical, so it is present in more countries (In Vietnam, this species accounts for more than 90%). Vietnam accounts for a third of the world's coffee consumption.

The seeds are smaller than Arabica, and are dried directly. But not ferment. The bitter taste predominates. This drink is richer.

Culi Coffee
They are round coffee beans. Especially in a fruit with only one seed. Bitter taste, passionate aroma, high caffeine content, black water comparison. It is the quintessential union of uniqueness.

Cherry Coffee
Cherry, also known as jackfruit coffee, consists of two main varieties, Liberica and Exelsa.This type is not very popular. But this is a type with very good pest resistance and very high yield. Grown in the dry, windy and sunny regions of the Highlands.

Cherry has a very different character and flavor of a tree that matures in the sun and wind of the Highlands. Yellow beans, shiny very beautiful. When mixed, it creates a faint aroma, especially the sour taste of Cherry, creating a very refreshing feeling.
Cherry is very suitable for women's preferences with a blend of smell and taste creating a rustic, noble and noble feeling.
