In Vietnam, there is very little Mocha coffee left currently that contributes to boost the price of this product in the highest level compared to others. This is rooted in the low productivity and immunity from diseases of Mocha. For those reasons, people tend to reject this kind of coffee gradually. Nevertheless, some cultivators in Da Lat today have recognized the importance of preserving the ancient coffee kind, so they still cultivate and alternate between Mocha and Catimor, a sort of coffee also belonging to Arabica line but producing many berries, which are larger. At the beginning of 2000s, a company of Japan set up an investment plan to persuade cultivators to preserve and develop this species of plant in order that the company will monopolize in this product. After that, however, this plan could not be conducted due to many problems. Therefore, it is not easy to preserve and develop scarce species, which are the gift of nature.
