*This will be a walking tour, we will walk to three different cafes and taste Vietnam signature coffee such as egg cappucino, coconut coffee, traditional phin drip and a special coffee drink that you won't find anywhere else! *My standard: We will just come to cafes that have no dark roasted and no quakers in their coffee beans. In fact, it's a part of our Vietnamese traditional coffee that I want to make changes. :-) *I did a research about caffeine and believe me, It won't be an overload of caffeine intakes. However, it would make you hungry, so we will have a small meal at the end of the tour - a special kind of bánh mì. *Coffee talk will be all about Vietnamese coffee: -Differences between our country's coffee culture and world's. -The story about Vietnam traditional and nowaday coffee roasting techniques. -How the coffee making techniques and filters (v60, French press, phin drip,...) affect aroma, taste and flavour of coffee. -What to know to make coffee that brings out all the flavour inside.
Xin chào I'm Ben, a young boy who loves coffee and fortunately, I was born and raised in the country that is placed second for world's top coffee exports - Vietnam. But it's also a problem. I found out that right in middle of Saigon, big city of Vietnam that has around 50 cafes per sq.km, there are not many coffee tasting tours for guests to experience Saigon's coffee culture. That is why I created this experience. I'm a roaster and coffee taster,I've tried thousand cups of coffee at many coffee shops in Saigon to bring you decent cups of Vietnam's coffee in this tour. I'm sure you won't be disappointed :-)
Vietnamese street food
4 exclusive coffee drinks
We will go by taxi, if walking is not a good choice at that time.
We will meet at Saigon Opera House, then walk to each coffee shops to experience the taste of Vietnamese signature coffee. Some cafes are located in apartments so you have to climb stairs. It can be tired a little bit but worth it! There is also a slightly different version of this tour, depending on the weather and your preference for having food for lunch or breakfast. Food will be bánh mì that has meat inside.
-Enjoy drinking coffee is a must!!! -Not suitable for vegan/vegetarian (if you still want to go, we will skip egg coffee and replace it with specialty coffee instead) -No problems with caffeine intake
