K’Ho Coffee – an ethnic minority producing high quality Arabica coffee in Vietnam

There’s an ethnic minority group in Vietnam called the K’Ho (Cơ Ho or KoHo) people. They are the oldest ethnic group living in the Central Highlands region, very close to Da Lat in the Lam Dong province, where most of the Vietnamese coffee is produced. The K’Ho people used to be nomadic, but now they are settled and they grow coffee and rice for a living, together with producing some really nice handicrafts. The community has reached 200.000 members by now.
