A popular honeymoon destination, Da Lat is called the 'City of Eternal Spring' and its surroundings in Lam Dong Province are famous for coffee, cassia, and cocoa production due to the unique temperate climate. Made with Vietnamese Lam Dong cocoa nibs that impart a spicy flavor, this rub has a touch of coffee and star anise that makes it beautiful for rubbing on pork or beef, adding to noodle dishes (like pho) or even sprinkling over cut melon or ice cream. We are proud to source the coffee beans for Da Lat Spice from Nguyen Coffee Supply, the first specialty Vietnamese coffee company in the US!
