Vietnam Robusta


Starting at $5.50 / lb
As low as $4.25 / lb
raw green bean Green coffee is raw Roast prior to consumption

Vietnam has become the world's largest Robusta producer, and the second largest coffee producer. The area most known for this production is the southern Central Highlands region. Robusta beans are known by their name because they are full bodied, robust beans with a higher caffeine content than Arabica. Robusta beans contain generally 265.00 mg per 8.00 fl. oz cup which is extremely high! Most Robusta beans are bought for their high caffeine content and the crema!

Cupping Notes: Coffee made from Robusta is generally stronger, nuttier, and darker than Arabica coffee.

Most flavorful coffee I’ve ever tasted.

I tried roasting these in my SR300. It seemed as if they did not want to get dark. I never heard a crack. I roasted them till they finally appeared dark and as I suspected I it was too long. What little taste it had was not good. I've always been more than pleased with the beans I get from CBC so I'm sure it's something I'm doing wrong, especially with these particular beans. Any advice on achieving the correct roast will be greatly appreciated.

I recently learned about Robusta Coffee, so I called and ordered some, which came speedily. I roasted it and ground my first cup and all I can say it was simply wonderful. I don't look for the amount of caffeine in my bean, I look for the flavor and seeing this was something new to Coffee Bean Corral's line up, I wanted to order it and did with no regrets. Will order this again. (y)

This is a tough one to review. It's hard to review anything according to taste because, as we all know, taste is completely subjective. My wife and I, being fairly new to the coffee bean roasting game, were excited to try this Vietnamese bean because we had really enjoyed other Asian beans. This tastes nothing like anything else we've had. We drank the entirety of the the 1/2 lb I roasted to a medium/dark level. It is earthy, it is nutty, though maybe not in the way I would have liked. We will probably be giving the remaining 1/2lb of the 1lb bag we purchased to someone else with a "you really should give this a try and tell us what you think" attached to it. Here is where this bean shines: If you are looking to show people how vastly different coffees can indeed taste; that not all coffee tastes the same, then this would be a great example of how a Robusta differs from an Arabica or even just help clearly show the range of flavors that can be found. This is not a BAD coffee, but it is DIFFERENT. I would recommend everyone who is experimenting with roasting and tasting coffee to at least get a 1/2lb sample just to further enhance your palate a further deepen your understanding of coffee and its range of flavors. As far as Coffee Bean Corral goes, they always get a 5 star rating from us!

We roasted it to second crack, and tried making it two ways: through espresso machine and coffee brewer. We tried hot and iced. The caffein kick is strong and not a very good high(?) Compared to our other organic roasts from here. We preferred iced and with milk and sugar, but it did not taste like the Vietnamese iced coffee that we buy from the restaurants.

I tried different roast levels and brewing methods with no real positive results. Will probably have to use as a blend,
