As the world’s largest producer of Robusta, Vietnam is not generally considered an origin of high-quality coffee. But that is hardly the case. Cau Dat, in the province of Da Lat in the central to the southeastern part of the country, grows significant amounts of specialty coffee.

Region & Altitude
Da Lat Lam Dong / 1400-1600 masl
Da Lat Arabica Honey Process is grown at an altitude of 1400-1600 masl, and the region is characterized by year-round cool weather and volcanic soil. Coffee has been growing in Caudat since the mid-1850s when it was introduced by the French. It has since been cultivated by Vietnamese farmers and the region is known for being among the highest-quality arabica in the country.
During honey-style coffee processing, most of the pulp is removed from the coffee bean with a bit of remaining mucilage left to impart flavor. The coffee is then sun-dried and sorted and hulled before grading and exportation.
