ON THE COVER, IT’S TRAN HAN OF VIETNAM. Vietnam has quickly become one of the largest producers of coffee in the world, but much of its production so far has focused on quantity over quality.

You can find out more about Tran Han and the burgeoning Vietnamese café scene in this issue of Barista Magazine.
