In 1857 the first coffee plants were introduced here by French missionaries and around 1888 plantations were established in the northern plains of Vietnam. In the early 1900s it was determined that the area around Tay Nguyen was ideally suited for growing coffee and so this area became extremely important for Robusta coffee. Vietnam has been the main supplier of Robusta coffee since the year 2000 and ranks second as a coffee producer in the world.
