Please note: Amazon warehouses are not taking deliveries on non-essential items. We sent stock of this coffee to Amazon but they will not put it into inventory, so we can only supply this as Merchant Fulfilled for the time being.
(Ships within 1 day of order, Priority Mail) We feature all four of the remaining commercial species of coffee still produced in the world. – Arabica, Robusta, Excelsa and Liberica. Robusta is a “back palate” coffee for the 50% of people in the world who are not “front palate” people. Many people who have never found their perfect coffee are “back palate” people and fall in love with good Robusta when they find it. Vietnamese Robusta from the Dalat Highlands is the secret ingredient in Italian espresso. Its lush body, chocolatey taste, and excellent aftertaste are a product of the rich basaltic soil in Vietnam, and the fact that they are able to sun-dry the coffee cherries, which develops Robusta’s natural sweetness.
Why Robusta? Scientific tests have shown that people around the world, including the USA, are evenly divided between “front palate” people and “back palate” people. We find that people who respond well to Vietnamese coffees in general tend to be “back palate” people, and Robusta excites primarily the back of the palate. In particular, Vietnamese high-altitude Robusta has developed indigenously to be almost its own subspecies, and the gourmet Robusta from this region is exceptionally delicious, quite unlike the low-altitude versions and Brazilian Robusta. High caffeine, high body, low acid, very smooth. Fresh roasted weekly and vacuum-packed in foil vent bags.
This is a product we always carry as Prime, but occasionally the stock at Amazon runs out, and you will see that it is available as Merchant-Fulfilled until we get new stock into Amazon. As it is a fresh roasted product, we do not like to overstock. If it is temporarily available only as Merchant Fulfilled, we are sorry for the inconvenience.
