Coffee is a favorite drink around the world, but every country has its own way of enjoying it.
The Travel, a magazine specializing in travel experiences, recently ran an article (by Canadian author Robynne Trueman) that listed the countries with the best coffee in the world, and at the very beginning of that article mentioned Vietnamese iced coffee.
The author of the article believes that drinking and preparing coffee in any place is infused with native culture and traditions. Therefore, learning about a country’s coffee culture also helps visitors learn more about the country itself.
In Vietnam, coffee isn’t just a drink to start a new day; it is something that people can enjoy in the morning, afternoon and even evening. Vietnam has some of the best coffee in the world and there are two very unique drinks that every visitor should try during their visit. Vietnamese iced coffee consists of medium or dark roast coffee with ice, combined with condensed milk. It’s the perfect drink for a hot day.
Another unique coffee that visitors should not miss when they come to Vietnam is egg coffee.
This delicious hot drink is made by combining egg yolks with condensed milk into a delicious latte for a cup of coffee.
Coffee is a popular commodity in Vietnam and around the world. Currently there are more than 70 coffee producing countries, but the majority of global coffee production comes from 5 major producers: Brazil, Vietnam, Colombia, Indonesia and Ethiopia. All of these top producing countries are located in the so-called “Bean Belt”, which lies between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn.
