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!
