How Vietnam became a coffee giant

How Vietnam became a coffee giant | THE VIETNAM WAR ERA  DIGITAL STUDY: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

"Think of coffee and you will probably think of Brazil, Colombia, or maybe Ethiopia. But the world's second largest exporter today is Vietnam. How did its market share jump from 0.1% to 20% in just 30 years, and how has this rapid change affected the country?"

Tracy Galvin's curator insight, May 5, 3:13 PM

This is a tough predicament, coffee growing is providing a stable income for many Vietnamese but land clearing is ruining the environment. Land mines are still in the soil in many places and could cause severe injury or loss of life. How long before the country cannot produce enough coffee and farmers start to suffer again?

Amanda Morgan's comment, September 13, 6:21 PM
Without globalization, the vietnamese would not be able to participate in the high demand for coffee, which inevitably turned around their country;s economy. Vietnam is capitalizing from using their country's geography and resources of the land.

When Erich Orrick came home from the Army after 12 years of service, he made it his mission to help other soldiers who were coming home too. But what Orrick, 44, the father of two girls, did not know was that his community had become well aware of all his good deeds — and so had the Indianapolis Colts’ Pat McAfee, who’d met Orrick through Orrick’s charity organization. “He’s the most selfless person I’ve ever met in my life,” McAfee said in an interview with the IndyStar.
