As known as the 2nd biggest coffee exporter in the world, coffee and drinking coffee now has become a part of Vietnamese culture. It is said that if you haven’t tried Vietnamese coffee while being in Vietnam which means you haven’t been to this country yet. Refer to this culture, in the 2019 Miss Universe competition, Hoang Thuy – the young woman representing Vietnam decided to wear a costume depicting “filter coffee with condensed milk” for her performance.
If you are planning to visit Hoi An, also plan at least 2 or 3 café stop a day in order to understand this kind of culture in the community. No matter who you are, a coffee expert or just a normal coffee drinker or try coffee at the first time, It is a great thing to seek for a cafe here because it may hide themselves in the alleyways, near the beach or even it is just a corner in the house.
