VIETNAMESE COFFEE CULTURE DIFFERENT FROM THE REST

Category: CULTURE   |   03/01/2018 16:03:59

When Obama – the president of the United States – visited Vietnam on May 2016, he said that he would like to enjoy some “Cafe sua đa”, which means “Iced milk coffee” in Vietnamese. I think he definitely should, since Vietnamese coffee is absolutely great and even praised by people around the world.

VIETNAMESE COFFEE CULTURE DIFFERENT FROM THE REST


When Obama – the president of the United States – visited Vietnam on May 2016, he said that he would like to enjoy some “Cafe sua đa”, which means “Iced milk coffee” in Vietnamese. I think he definitely should, since Vietnamese coffee is absolutely great and even praised by people around the world.

Going around some big cities in Vietnam such as Hanoi or Saigon, especially in the morning, you can easily see many people sit on a chair or the pavement and drink coffee with a newspaper in their hand. Vietnamese don’t want to be hurry when drinking coffee, and we love enjoying it while we are doing other things like reading books, newspapers or talking with friends, business partners or simply meditating. It’s very different from the United States, where we can see people hold a big cup of coffee in their hand and walk with haste. However, in France, people have lots of things in common with Vietnamese regarding coffee culture: they like SSE Coffee ( Sit, Sip and Enjoy coffee) ( Bet Cafe or Cafe bet ), it come together with some chit chats and conversations.

The way people in Vietnam enjoy their coffee, as well as their preferences, are also varied which depend mostly on where they come from. For instance, in general, southern Vietnamese, especially Saigonese, prefer washier coffee, with lots of ice and sugar. They also have “Bac Xiu”( not Bac Siu ), which is simply iced milk coffee but with an extremely large amount of milk and just a little coffee. Meanwhile, there’s no “Bạc Xỉu” in northern Vietnam. Nothern people prefer “rich” coffee with little sugar and no ice. 

Recently, some “modern cafeterias” like The Coffee House, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf or Starbucks have been popularized in Vietnam, especially by the young generation. It brings a lot of novelties to this country and somehow changes the way people enjoy coffee. However, just like Tet Holiday and Trinh Cong Son music, the traditional coffee culture – one of the exclusive types of coffee drinks will still play a crucial role in Vietnamese people’s life.

Thank you for being a part of Vietnamese coffee Culture

  • FOOD TOUR ON MOTORBIKE - BEST WAY TO EXPLORE HO CHI MINH!

    FOOD FUN

    My husband and I had been recommended this tour by some tourists that had just done it. We were taken on the tour by Tiny and Juho. They were fantastic! They spent 4 hours taking us around and giving us an insight into life for the Vietnamese people. Along the way we were educated and well fed. The food was fantastic and in abundance. We felt completely safe and there was no concern about being on the busy roads. This is a must while in Ho Chi Minh!.

    EXCELLENT TOUR, WITH FIRST CLASS GUIDES TEE AND KENT

    We did the half day scooter tour, and couldn't have been more impressed. It was my partners first time on a scooter, and coupled with the HCM traffic she was a little nervous. Tee and Kent, our guides put her at ease right away. We visited temples, the flower market, motor cycle market, amongst others as well as fruit and vegetable produce from the Mekong Delta being sold on the banks of the Saigon River. We went up and down tiny alleys in areas off the main tourist areas. We got caught in a heavy downpour which added to the fun of the day. The supplied ponchos helped keep us dry. The guides, Tee and Kent, speak really good english, and explained things about the historical significance of certain places we visited really well. One of the best parts was our stop to have an authentic vietnamese coffee and we each chatted about our various cultures and interests. This has been my 3rd visit to Vietnam and I have done lots of tours and sightseeing, but this was right up there with one of the best things I have done. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone Thank you for a wonderful tour Tee and Kent Andrew and Maree

  • GOOD FUN!

    A FANTASTIC TOUR

    What an incredible night of exploring "non-touristy" delicious street food all over the city! Sophie is an incredibly fun, knowledgeable, thoughtful girl that beautifully wove through not only the maze of crazy traffic, but also the maze of my picky eating!! I cannot speak highly enough of what a fun and energetic tour this is! I highly recommend this experience!!

    TINY FOR THE WIN!

    I did the food tour around the city, and was lucky to get Tiny as my tour guide. She was amazing! Super friendly, very knowledgeable, and excellent English. I actually ended up with a private tour with her, and time just flew by as she took me from one delicious place to another, and talked about food, Vietnamese culture, and life. Highly recommend this company and in particular Tiny as your tour guide. Hi Tiny! - Your american bf
