About

 

As the second leading producer of coffee, Vietnam is not known for its Arabica coffee production. Rather, it is a powerhouse producer of robusta thanks to strong government support during the recovery period after the Vietnam War. However, work at origin is helping promote Arabica production and high-quality coffee.

 

Producers in this region started growing coffee around 20 years ago, farming on very small plots (less than 2 hectares) and learning ‘on their feet’ year after year. Few, if any, had received any formal training, until in 2017, our partner in the region, who represents and provides support for several hundred small-scale Arabica producers throughout the Lam Dong province, began working with the producers of Dung K’No.

Dung K’No was selected by our partner as the region had good potential for quality production. The engagement started with meetings, interviews & training to better understand producers concerns and
needs. From these discussions, a successful purchasing model was developed. In contrast to how much purchasing in the region is conducted whereby collectors go from village to village, our partner based their model on building ‘farmer collaborative groups’; buying coffee cherry directly from the villagers. This meant that staff members were on the ground daily during the harvest season to gather freshly collected cherries. Each lot submitted was checked individually with farmers (providing lots of feedback), and cash was paid directly upon delivery. This method has ensured a large impact on quality, in turn improving the income and livelihoods of farmers.
