Among specialty coffee experts, coffees that have a bitter, pungent flavor, often termed ‘strong’ by novices, are considered low quality. As a country that has within the last twenty years become the second largest producer of coffee worldwide, Vietnam presents an interesting case study to examine the production of industrialized and low quality coffee to fuel development. The object of this study is to situate the unsustainable development of countries such as Vietnam within political and economic structures that have emerged overtime. We seek to understand the consequences of using coffee as a catalyst for economic growth, particularly in terms of ecological damage and potential social and political repercussions for future generations.
