Our first coffee nation we would love to talk about is our home...Vietnam. Our profile on Vietnam will be short and sweet. A very strong coffee nation located on the Indochina Peninsula has become the second largest producer of coffee in the world and the largest producer of Robusta in the world.
Coffee was first introduced by the French in the 19th century. By the 1950s the French had a manufacturing plant producing instant coffee in Vietnam. But the coffee in Vietnam has evolved beyond just French instant coffee and into a much larger industry. How much coffee was produced? In the years of 2012/13, Vietnam produced 22 million 60 kg bags of coffee ready for export.
