Having always had the desire to add an elusive Arabica coffee from Vietnam to their already exotic line of coffees, the owner of The Exotic Bean set out to do so.
With Vietnam being the #2 producer of coffee worldwide, most of it being a lower quality Robusta bean, he discovered there were small pockets in Northern Vietnam that were producing excellent Arabica coffee as well. This quest took him to the west of the Hoang Lien Son mountain range in the Chieng Ban Son la province of Vietnam. Here he discovered a small 100-year old family farm using old school farming techniques growing exclusively high-quality Arabica coffee. Not surprisingly this area’s growing conditions are almost identical to that of San Paolo, Brazil, the world’s #1 coffee producing region.
We are proud to add this rare Arabica Vietnamese coffee to our already popular line of Thai coffees.
