Lam Dong is a mountainous province in the Central Highlands of Vietnam, and the only province not bordering Laos or Cambodia. The Central Highlands is comprised of a series of contiguous plateaus, with some of the highest peaks in northern Lam Dong. Lam Dong is 70% forested and experiences a tropical monsoon climate with steady year-round temperatures. On average, temperatures range from 60-73°F with little fluctuation but can be more extreme depending on the elevation. Rainfall per year is between 60-106 inches. The complex topography, mild weather, predictable rainy seasons, and varying vegetation contribute to an ecosystem that describes how coffee has been produced in such large quantities since the mid-1900s.

Most arabica producers in Vietnam grow Catimor, Typica, and Bourbon, with Catimor making up most of what is produced. Catimor is a hybrid of Caturra and Timor that was developed in Portugal in 1959. Compared to the older Typica and Bourbon varieties, Catimor is more productive, easier to maintain, and pest-resistant, making it safer and therefore, more widely grown throughout Vietnam’s coffee-growing regions.
