The traditional sorts of coffee from Vietnam are highland arabica coffee and robusta with pleasant astringency and orange zest notes
robusta coffee is the most commonly grown type in vietnam, known for its bold and earthy flavor, while arabica coffee is also cultivated in smaller quantities, prized for its delicate and nuanced taste
Vietnamese Arabica and Robusta
Vietnamese Robusta is the most popular coffee variety. It is strong and rich due to its high caffeine content (1.5 - 3.2%) and low content of essential oils (about 8%). Such features create this strength and astringency taste of Robusta. Due to its taste, it is often used in coffee blends to give the drink richness and pleasant astringency. Also, it adds this important caffeine drive people expect from a cup of coffee.
The second most popular type of coffee in Vietnam is Arabica which has a delicate and pleasant taste. This type of coffee has low caffeine content - 0.2% but the number of essential oils can reach 18%! Such characteristics make Arabica soft and diverse in taste.
