Over the years, “K’Ho Coffee” has been known as a signature coffee brand in Lam Dong Province’s Lang Biang Plateau which was created by Joshua, an American, and his wife Co Lieng Rolan, a K’Ho girl. It is also an exemplary model for making clean coffee of the K’Ho ethnic group in the Central Highlands.
The “K’Ho Coffee” brand started from a romantic love story between Joshua, an American, and Co lieng Rolan, a beautiful K’Ho girl in Bonneur C Hamlet, Lac Duong District, Lam Dong Province. Joshua left the US in 2008 to work in a company in Cambodia which specialised in organising tours for foreign tourists. Then, he arrived in Vietnam and fell in love with Co Lieng Rolan, an artist from the Gong Troupe of Mong Mo Hill Tourist Site. They got married and decided to do business in the homeland of Rolan at the foot of the legendary Lang Biang Mountain. When talking with a foreign tourist about coffee, an idea of making a type of pure coffee came across Rolan’s mind and the couple decided to create a type of coffee product, applying the organic farming method.
Thanks to the knowledge of Joshua who once studied agriculture and with the support of Rolan who thoroughly understands the coffee farming method in her native land, the couple quickly implemented their plan to create the “K’Ho Coffee” brand. Rolan said that she wanted to create a signature coffee product of the K’Ho people and affirm the brand of coffee in the region.
