This coffee has a floral complexity similar to tea, while also providing a mix of sweetness and juiciness reminiscent of ripe apples and mangos.

The Vuong siblings are a second generation family of coffee producers in Vietnam. Hieu and his brother Trung currently oversee the coffee farms alongside their father. As young producers, both under the age of 40, they possess a total of 12 hectares (30 acres) divided between two farms. Each farm boasts a 1,200 square meter drying area and a total of 5,000 Java variety trees, obtained from a farmer in Laos. In addition to the Java variety, the Vuong Family also cultivate Catimor, Yellow Bourbon, and Orange Bourbon beans. We were immediately drawn to this coffee during our cupping session due to its light, complex flavor profile with just a hint of funk. In our pursuit to showcase lesser-known origins in specialty coffee, we are thrilled to begin our journey in Vietnam with this exceptional coffee and the Vuong Family, with whom we hope to establish a long-term partnership.

It took 4,800kg of cherries to produce just 600kg of green coffee. The cherries were picked by hand when ripened, washed to remove floaters and put in 60kg bags with added water and sealed for 86 hours to create a low oxygen environment. After that, they were washed again before drying on the raised bed for 15 days.

FAQ

We roast to order and ship Monday-Thursday. Orders are usually fulfilled the production day after they are placed (for example, orders placed on Monday will ship on Tuesday). Orders placed Thursday-Sunday will be fulfilled and shipped on Monday.

By you? Yes. By us, sadly, no. Currently, we can only ship whole-bean coffee.

Freshness is critical to fully enjoying coffee. We roast to order to ensure your coffee is at peak freshness when it arrives. Sometimes our shipping partners experience delays due to weather, heightened demand, technical issues, pandemics, or aliens. All of which is out of our hands, except the aliens, but that's not for here.

If your package is delayed, let us know and we'll track it down and escalate its delivery. If it's delayed more than 2 weeks past the shipment date, and your order includes coffee, we'll either refund your money or ship you fresh coffee at no cost.
