Vietnam Decembr 2013: Where You Can Find The Best Coffee

think of coffee and you will probably think of Brazil, Columbia, or probably Ethiopia, but the world's second largest exporter today is Vietnam.

inside the store, look what we saw...


this is how the vietnamese process their coffee (on a figurine's perspective :-)




the Vietnamese traditionally drank tea, like the Chinese and still do...they say, this tea tasted really good -)...i'm not a tea drinker...

...nor a coffee drinker, but my husband and Alex are :-) bought this two kinds of coffee for a pack of 8 and it cost us 11,000 pesos already, that's how expensive it is...


this is how Vietnamese coffee is consumed, and is partly why about a quarter of coffee drunk in the UK comes from Vietnam...












i asked Han if the money he paid is worth the taste of the coffee, he immediately said, yes!

high-end coffee shops mainly buy Arabica coffee beans, whereas Vietnam grows the hardier Robusta beans. Arabica beans contains between 1% to 1.5% caffeine while Robusta has between 1.6% to 2.7% caffeine, making it taste more bitter.

some companies, like Nestle, have processing plants in Vietnam, which roast the beans and pack it.
