Inspired by the history of coffee in Vietnam during the French colonies in Southeast Asia in the 1880s with the French and their passion for ‘café’ (‘cà phê’ in vietnamese) and it is intrinsically linked to the spread of coffee across the world.
History of coffee in Vietnam really starts from here, where first introduced to by the French Colonists from Bourbon (La Reunion) but production remained small. Over the years, Vietnam now has grown to be one of the largest coffee producers all over the world.
The creation is a collaboration of the Winnipeg-based Western farmer's son and Eastern farmer's son. A hint of sweetness of sugar canes, which are grown around our coffee farms in Vietnam, Laos and other farms we work with in other regions of Southeast Asia. We want to create something to bring people to the origin and connect people together. Each candle reflects the incredible qualities every farmer has no matter where they from to build a brighter future for their families in peace.
