The Best Coffee in Vietnam!
Posted on 13 October 2018
It’s been 10 months since our farming partners in Vietnam we’re devastated by a fire on New Year’s Day. The fire destroyed their homes along with all their possessions, their coffee storage and drying shed and all their coffee processing equipment. It was a horrifying situation to unfold on a day that is usually filled with (a bit of a hangover), some reflection and exciting plans for the year ahead.
With no infrastructure or even a bed to sleep in, these families now had to rebuild their lives from the ground up. Thankfully their crops we’re saved and with the support from the surrounding community, an awesome NGO, local government, our customers, friends and a huge amount of hard work they were able to rebuild and complete their 2018 harvest and processing.
We’re sooooo stoked to tell you that the last harvest was their best ever! This is not just a story of survival or recovery but a story of determination, resilience…and success! Yep, their coffee has been independently cupped annually by some of the most well-respected specialty coffee companies in the world and despite the hardship they experienced, their cup score actually improved this year to their best yet! Their results put their coffee in the same category as the best coffees in the world. Indeed, it's up there with the big guns from all over the world (yeah, we said it!).
This high score puts their coffee in the same category as the best coffees in the world!
