Ho Chi Minh City's coffee culture
You know that I love coffee!
When I am home, my Superman makes sure I get my hot coffee in the bed in the morning.
When I travel I make sure to stay at a hotel that know have I like my coffee.
When I first went to Vietnam I ordered the classic Vietnamese coffee known as "ca phe sua da" – literally “coffee, milk, ice”.
It comprises strong coffee, dripped from a small metal filter into a cup containing a quarter as much sweetened condensed milk, then stirred and poured over ice in a glass.
At first I couldn’t bear it's cloying sweetness, but three days in I’d grown addicted to the sweet buzz that follows a refreshing coolness on the tongue.
It suits the humidity of the place in a way that an ordinary latte wouldn’t.
Coffee was introduced to Vietnam by the French in the late 19th century, but the country quickly became a strong exporter. And now the Vietnamese have taken coffee to new levels of almost gastronomical – even medicinal – heights.
If you are in Norway you can get the coffee in one of the Vietnamese restaurants.
If you haven't tried it, dare to do so!
