Enjoy Great Coffee while Giving Back
No matter which Bamboo Bob Coffee you choose, two things are certain. You will love the coffee, and you will make a real difference in the community that grows it.
Change your morning cup, and change the world...
... at least a little bit. In Vietnam, like everywhere, the health of the land and the people are forever intertwined. Development demands a thoughtful path that respects the need to create long term success for the people, and a trusted coffee supply for you. Find out more about Bob's program to support development in the local coffee community.
Roots in Đà Nẵng
It is no wonder that Đà Nẵng regularly sits high in the rankings of the Conde Nast Traveler and Forbes “Top 10” lists. Situated in the center of it all, Đà Nẵng is nestled in a great section of pristine coastline, surrounded by mountains, rivers, waterfalls, and jungle. It is also a great access point for trips to the ancient cities and UNESCO World Heritage sites of colorful old town Hội An just south, and the 3rd century citadel of Huế to the north and easily accessible by a gorgeous half day ride through the storied Top Gear Hai Van mountain pass. The entire country is truly spectacular, but Đà Nẵng rises quickly to the top tier of places you might want to call home.
It’s in this coastal town where Bamboo Bob first laid it’s roots, and where you will find the home of Bamboo Bob Kickass Cà Phê Việt, and the Bamboo Bob Temple of Machined Metal, where you can pick up a moto, some great jungle gear, and some coffee to enjoy here or ship back home.
Rolling around, and writing it down

Bob Discovers Coffee.... and Vietnam
It's hard to say what clicked that day. I have never been a huge coffee lover, even back home coffee was not my go-to drink. It is not something that came suddenly to me in Vietnam, either. I was offered coffee most days, and would take it some days, but never would I go out of my way to find it.
Lost by Lunch near Đắk Lắk
The beautiful country around Buôn Ma Thuột captured my curiosity and began tugging at my heart the first time I rode through the central highlands, late one October. Riding from the dappled sun below the jungle canopy into fields of ripe coffee fruit, I found a small village, eager for dinner and some rest. Perhaps too eager for both, as the events of the next day might suggest.
