Vietnam’s coffee blends Aroma and Intensity coffees, produced by Sobica Joint Stock Company, have been awarded at the first international roasted coffee competition in France.
As already reported, the award ceremony was held in Paris on 12 June by the French Association for the Valorisation of Agricultural Products (AVPA) and the International Coffee Organisation.
Vu Thi Thu Hang, director of Sobica’s market development department, told Vietnam News Agency that the two prize winning coffees were grown in the Central Highlands region.
While Aroma coffee was a blend of the best three Arabica strains in Vietnam, Intensity coffee was a mixture of Da Lat Arabica and Buon Ma Thuot Robusta, she added.
The company worked with its partners to determine a roasting technique that enhances the flavour of the coffee, she noted.
