TONKIN TROPICAL COFFEE

We started at first with a simple idea, to harvest healthy beans free from harmful chemicals, that farmers are proud to grow, and consumers are excited to buy.

Why Premium Arabica Coffee?

Many people don’t know that Vietnam is the second largest coffee exporter in the world after Brazil, as we hardly make a name for ourselves in the global market because we are mainly recognized for our Robusta. Tonkin believes that we can share a hand to help change this perception.

“Tonkin Tropical Coffee was born at the midst of overwhelming

brands and labels fighting for a spot in today’s market.”

At the beginning of 2017, Tonkin launched an inclusive project to produce high-quality Arabica coffee called Tonkin Tropical Coffee, proudly made in Vietnam, where the farmers take great care and devotion to their trees. The coffee beans are carefully selected, and their quality will go beyond highly-set standards internationally. This project supports smallholder farmers associations to increase productivity and improve the quality of the coffee.

SOURCE & LOCATION

Da Lat is acknowledged as the best Arabica – growing area in Vietnam

Situated in the Langbian mountains, among many thousand-year-old volcanic mountains, hills and plateaus of the Central Highlands, Xuan Truong and Tram Hanh are Vietnam’s best origin for Arabica coffee. This location has an altitude of 1600 meters and sub-tropical, moderate year round foggy weather. Its Arabica coffee is enjoyed by local coffee drinkers and other customers across the region.

HARVEST & PROCESSING

QUALITY CONTROL

The farmers grow the trees throughout the eight month wet season with compost fertilizer, before harvesting by hand in October through November. The Arabica trees are cultivated and ripe cherries are selected consciously and then the wet processing method is used to ensure the highest quality of beans. After harvest, coffee cherries are brought immediately to a processing house nearby for fermentation to prevent a long waiting time that might affect the quality of the beans.

Tonkin implements a full wash process, starting with de-pulping machine to remove the cherry’s skin, followed by a cycle of washing, fermenting, then washing again to remove the mucilage. The parchment is dried on drying beds until the bean inside reaches 12% moisture content. Tonkin’s technicians monitor this process thoroughly to ensure high quality coffee.

FLAVOR PROFILE

This milestone is significant for us when work with local farmers from Tram Hanh & Xuan Truong village in Da Lat City to produce premium Catimor coffee beans.This variety was imported to Vietnam in 1984 from Cuba. Later it came from the Research Center for Varieties Against Rust of Portugal In 1990.

Tropical green coffee beans by Tonkin have already been cupped by US companies and specialty roasters that noticed that this coffee is clean, aromatic, and flavorful. Tonkin’s Tropical beans work wonders for blends or can be used as a single origin, estate, special & limited editions, or even as a reserve coffee.
