This article investigates the impact of coffee production on ethnic equality in Vietnam. As the second largest coffee exporter in the world, coffee has been a major contributor to economic development and success.

Vietnam has become one of the most successful socialist nations due in large part to its coffee production, but this has come at the expense of the overall goal of economic and social equality.
