Abstract
 
Coffee has become one of key agricultural exports of Vietnam, bringing to the country billions of dollars each year. But profit from exports has been much lower than the potential and export quantity, requiring big efforts in order to attain higher position among consumers all over the world.
 
Vietnam coffee is exported now to more than 80 countries around the world. In 2016, Vietnam exported nearly 1.8 million metric tons of coffee, accounting for 15% of the global market share. At the moment, Vietnam is the world’s biggest coffee producer and ranks second among coffee bean exports in the world.
 
However, while export quantiy was about 27,500 bags (60kg/bags) in 2016, only after Brazil (45,400 bags), Vietnam’s export value was much lower, and even lower than that of Colombia, which exported only 12,500 bags last year.
