Coffee is worth a try during your holiday in Vietnam

Although coffee was introduced in Vietnam by French colonists in the 1800s, Vietnamese people have successfully developed it as a unique drink that foreign tourists must have a try when they travel to Vietnam. Coffee has become a great part of Vietnamese culture. The Vietnamese coffee is part of socializing and as a result, you can find this drink in different forms, formats, and styles.   The taste of Vietnamese coffee is unlike any other you have tried. It is stronger and flavourful as the coffee is made up of Robusta beans. Though Robusta beans are considered inferior to the Arabica type, it seems like Vietnamese people really know how to make use of their advantage and turned the coffee one of the specialty products to be presented to foreigners. With variations that make use of yogurt, eggs, and even fruit, Vietnamese coffee has developed a style of its own.

1/ Vietnam's milk coffee 

 The Vietnamese drip coffee is usually filtered for individual purposes using a phin, which consists of a small cup, a filter chamber and a lid.  Once the coffee has dripped away onto the gorgeous creamy layer of condensed milk at the bottom, you remove the lid, place it upside down on the table and pop your filter chamber on top. Bloomberg said it was the top 10 coffee drinks in the world, including iced milk coffee of Vietnam.

An egg coffee is traditionally prepared with egg yolks, sugar, condensed milk and Robusta coffee. The drink is made by beating egg yolks with sugar and coffee, then extracting the coffee into the half of the cup with a similar amount of egg cream, which is prepared by heating and beating the yolks.
The cup is served inside a bowl of hot water to keep its temperature. The marriage of the egg’s rich taste and aromatic coffee wafting through the air makes up the specific flavor. To drink egg coffee, people should slowly stir bobbed froth of whipped egg with the coffee below. Sweet and tasty of the mixture of egg and milk are in harmony with the bitterness of coffee and leaves behind the mesmerizing scent.

3/ Yoghurt coffee

Like coffee, yogurt was originally brought to Vietnam by the French and has been adopted into local culinary tradition. Rich and creamy, it’s served with various toppings, from fresh mango to fermented rice – and even coffee. This might sound like an odd combination, but the rich yogurt pairs amazingly well with a drizzle of black coffee.
