VietFive Vietnamese Robusta 101

VietFive Vietnamese Robusta 101

Our 100% Robusta Coffee is a versatile bean with bold flavors exhibiting base notes of chocolate and almond. Our beans are imported rom our red volcanic soil farm in Buôn Ma Thuột, Vietnam then small batch roasted locally in Chicago.

Since the genesis of our farm in the 1970s, we have only used Regenerative & Sustainable farming methods. We have always believed in using natural techniques to cultivate our coffee. We protect our coffee by growing pepper and peanut plants around our coffee as natural pest deterrents; and our coffee plants pollinate with butterflies native to the Buôn Ma Thuột region.


After importing our fresh green robusta coffee beans, we partner with a small batch roaster to curate 3 artisanal blends specifically designed to bring out the highest quality of flavors from our robusta beans.

Whether you have a drip coffee maker, espresso machine, french press, Keurig or a Vietnamese phin, we have a perfect roast for you!
