Vietnamese Coffee | Vietnam

Whether you are a coffee drinker or not coffee in Vietnam is a treat not to be missed.  For full disclosure I am not a coffee drinker, but a shot of the dark, strong and very rich coffee in Vietnam hits the spot and is sure to wake you up.  At its simplest, Ca phe sua is made with finely ground Vietnamese-grown dark roast coffee individually brewed with a small metal Vietnamese drip filter (cà phê phin) into a cup containing about a quarter to a half as much sweetened condensed milk stirred and then enjoyed.  However, many of the cups we had the coffee beans were roasted with corn to add more caramel flavor and a velvety richness that when mixed with the condensed milk is sublime.  The condensed milk is used due to the limitations on the availability of fresh milk.  This particular cup of Vietnamese coffee was enjoyed in the Mekong Delta in Can Tho.  Wherever you visit in Vietnam make sure to try the coffee even if it’s not a daily requirement for you to stay awake.

Nothing like a good cup of coffee in the morning! Just read about yours while “reading my morning paper” … that would be livingif.com of course! Always enjoy my morning jolt of travel news before I start the day here in snowy Minnesota. But we just had the most beautiful snow last night. I met a friend for supper drove along the River Road both ways and the snow coming down with all the city lights and the river was spectacular! I just know you two miss the snow some awful … right? :-)) The temps were even decent enough that you could stand outside and enjoy it! Have a great day! Donna

Donna, can’t say we miss the snow, but we are enjoying the cooler weather as we move North through Vietnam.
