The Cambodia Daily reported yesterday that poor coffee harvests in Vietnam have meant increased world coffee prices. Vietnam -Cambodia's neighbour- produces half of the world's robusta beans, which are used to make instant coffee. Therefore, the price of robusta beans rose 20% in 3 days last week.
However, the price rise has not hit Phnom Penh yet, with the best latte in town going for US$2 or, $3 if you require a large latte in a class, which I do.
Where do you find this great coffee you ask? - at Brown Bakery & Cafe on St 214.
