Not only does Helena., JSC assist coffee gardens in stabilizing output, improving quality, and increasing product value and profit per unit area, but it also collaborates with various foreign units to acquire goods for farmers in need of assistance.
Coffee farmers co-operative
The name gives the game away. A coffee cooperative is a group of coffee producers who work together to gain better access to resources, better marketing and business opportunities, training, and other benefits.
Members typically pay a fee that is then reinvested back into the coffee community, with the logic being that combined funds can achieve more than if spent separately. Furthermore, many large cooperatives employ full-time employees in administration, marketing, education, research, and other areas.
“A cooperative is a for-profit business…” José Marcos informs me. “Participation is voluntary, and our job is to facilitate our members’ access to the means of production, or supplies.”
IDH has provided valuable technical assistance to VNSAT by replicating their approaches in intervention areas. According to Mr. Nguyen Quoc Hoan, Vice Director of Dak Lak Province’s VNSAT Project Management Unit. “IDH has convened all coffee sector players, including government, companies, traders, civil society, NGOs, and others, to co-invest in the project.”
“The biggest strength of IDH is promoting public-private partnerships in the coffee sector,” said Mr. Hardwick Tchale, Senior Agricultural Economist at the World Bank. “The Project’s sustainability is dependent on the collaboration of the private sector and farmers, and we hope that IDH will continue to provide technical assistance to this collaboration so that Vietnam’s coffee sector thrives even after the project is completed.”
Mr. Le Van Hien, Director of the VNSAT Project Management Unit under MARD, also emphasizes that “the timely and effective support from IDH to link with the private sector is very helpful to make the investment of VNSAT program more effective to show the strong link with market demand, ensuring the sustainability of World Bank investment for the coffee sector in the long run.”
In addition, IDH has shared technical information for VNSAT on agrochemical management, agroforestry, intercropping, water management, and landscape development. As a result of their valuable technological insight, The World Bank has invited IDH to participate in bi-annual project implementation support missions as a technical adviser for the coffee component.

To facilitate cooperation, we will clearly state the process of clean processing coffee according to the company’s standards for people to understand as follows:
The coffee processing process will have 4 phases:
There are two requirements for the harvest stage:
- Harvest completely by hand
- Only harvest coffee that reaches 96% to 100% maturity
2. Grading: When the coffee is picked, we will classify coffee to choose the quality coffee fruit to produce. The coffee classification process is relatively simple, including:
- Coffees reach legal maturity.
- Eliminate impurities such as flat seeds, dry branches, and leaves ……
- If the coffee beans are stained with mud due to rain, they should be washed and obliterated.
3. Processing: To process coffee according to the Helena process, there are two ways of processing:
- Processing method 1:
+ Step 1: Charge the skin (charge only 1/3 of the peel)
+ Step 2: Bring to incubate for 1-2 days
+ Step 3: Dry the sun with canvas or on a clean cement floor
+ Step 4: When the coffee is dried in the sun, it will take the shell to charge and pack and store
- Processing method 2:
+ Step 1: After being harvested and classified, coffee will be sun-dried immediately (leave the surface to dry) and dried with canvas on a clean cement floor.
+ Step 2: When the egg is dried in the sun at enough temperature, it will be charged, then packed and stored
Note: When starting coffee, it is necessary to avoid getting wet with rain or dew, leading to stale coffee and affecting coffee quality.
- Store in storage: avoid direct sunlight and over-heat the coffee
- The repository must be airy and clean, as not to let the coffee beans get moldy.
Our company always wants to cooperate with people to improve the quality of life and product quality in the market.
