Dak Lak farmers enjoy bumper coffee crop

The central highlands Dak Lak province is considered Vietnam’s “coffee capital” and local farmers are busy these days with the harvest.


Dak Lak is the country’s largest coffee growing area, with 210,000 ha. This year’s output is estimated at 500,000 tonnes of green coffee. Farmers are now entering the peak harvest season.

Dak Lak has asked organisations and individuals not to harvest unripe coffee beans, to ensure coffee quality. It has also suggested that farmers prepare dryers in case of prolonged rain./.
