DescriptionIn a country where coffee shops dominate almost every street corner, it is a bit of a surprise to know that coffee is just a new player here. It was introduced to Vietnam in the late 19th-century by French colonists. Now Vietnam is one of the biggest exporters, with many plantations in the central highlands. Coffee is now ingrained in the everyday life of Vietnamese. People come to the coffee shop not only to drink it but also to soak up the atmosphere. Here, enjoy a slow life, meet friends or business partners, and watch how the coffee is made, drop by drop, to fill up your cup. Take a short walk from meeting point to a boutique villa hidden in a local alley. Listen to may stories on this two-hour tour and learn about the journey of coffee from crop to cup. Discover what makes Vietnamese ground coffee, fined Robusta, different to other types around the world. Learn the steps needed to roast dark beans so that they mix perfectly with sweet condensed milk, which is an improvisation made due to the limitations on the availability of fresh milk at French colonial time. Your high graded barista guide will demonstrate how to make Vietnamese coffee to achieve the best flavor. Though it is brewed using a surprisingly low tech technique, with a little metal filter called a Phin (a version of the French press), the flavor is truly rich and deep. Enjoy your coffee with a cookie and water. Feel free to relax at the coffee shop and try the local dishes from the neighborhood. This tour is not only suitable for coffee lovers but for travelers who wish to discover the history and culture of a city. After the tour, you will know why cafe culture makes Vietnam a favorite city in the world.
