Coffee in Vietnam

Visit the origin of coffee in Vietnam

Is coffee one of your basic necessities and, despite this daily craving for caffeine, do you want to travel towards Asia? Then visit Vietnam! In the distant past, Vietnam – like many Asian countries – was a tea country. In the nineteenth century, French colonialists introduced coffee to Vietnam. Since then, some special coffee varieties have emerged, such as traditional Vietnamese coffee and unmissable variations with egg (ca phe trung), yoghurt (sua chua ca phe), and coconut (ca phe cot dua).

Right behind Brazil, Vietnam is the world’s largest coffee producer. The country exports more than 1.6 million tonnes of coffee annually. Most of it is Robusta (95%), other coffees grown in Vietnam are Catimor and Excela (both variations of Arabica).

Coffee from Dalat and Buon Ma Thuot

Everywhere in Vietnam, from cafés to markets, you will come across coffee beans from Dalat and the neighbouring ‘coffee capital‘ Buon Ma Thuot. Both cities are located in Vietnam’s Central Highlands. The surroundings of Dalat and Buon Ma Thuot are full of coffee plants. The altitude, fertile soil and climate ensure that Vietnamese Robusta coffee grows so well here.

Are you a true coffee lover or dare to call yourself a coffee connoisseur? Then make sure you travel to Vietnam in the month of March. During this month the annual Coffee Festival takes place in March in Buon Ma Thuot – a week in which Vietnamese coffee takes centre stage. During the festival, various activities, tastings and exhibitions related to coffee in Vietnam take place in and around Buon Ma Thuot.

Coffee culture in Hanoi

Vietnam’s capital city Hanoi is known for its coffee culture: hip coffee bars, big coffee chains and traditional coffee shops alternate in the streets. From early morning to late at night, you will find coffee lovers of all ages here. Trieu Viet Vuong is the street to be on for the best cup of coffee in Hanoi.

But hey, don’t take our word for it…

“We did a guided 3 days motorbike tour from Da Lat to Di Linh with Mr. Vu’s company and had an absolutely amazing time far away from the mainstream touristic road. We faced beautiful mountain landscapes, learned a lot about locals – life, numerous plantations and fabrics-, swam in and took a shower at a waterfall and enjoyed amazing local food. A million thanks to our guides Hong and Lukat who made this tour unforgettable – they explained us a lot about local traditions, showed us wonderful and hidden places in the countryside and answered every question. Both (and Mr. Vu himself, too) were super friendly, helpful and flexible, what is highly appreciated. Furthermore, we felt secure at every second on the motorbike – they are profis. We had a marvelous time together and a good laugh at all times with you, guys. Mot hai ba zo and don’t forget about the “silent fox” 🙂 Thanks a lot, all the best for you personell and the company. You do a fantastic job!”

“My friend and I took a 3-day tour from Phong Nha to Hoi An. The tour was amazing and we were so glad we booked it as we have seen a lot of interesting sites which we would not have visited otherwise. There was also a nice alternation between the enjoying nice views, swimming and sites related to the Vietnam war. We had Cuong and Hiep as our guides. They are really good drivers and we’re always very careful. They made us feel comfortable on the motorbike which ensured that we could enjoy the scenery while driving. Also of the motorbike, they looked after us, making sure our hotel room was good, that we enjoyed the food and they gave a lot of explanation at each stop. The tour was so good I would immediately book it again.”

“Mr Vu Rocks! 7 days, HCM to Hoi An via HCM trail. Great route thru Vietnamese backroads with Mr Vu sharing his passion and insights into Vietnamese history, culture, and love for his country was exceptional. You couldn’t ask for a better guide and itinerary. Go Mr Vu!”

“Me and my friend had an amazing time with Jack and LuKa. They tried their hardest to make it an unforgetable experience. 2 days before our long trip we did a day tour in Da Lat and wanted to finish our 4 week trip with an multiple day tour so we picked this one. We never felt unsafe on the motorbike and they drove very carefully. You’ll get to see a lot of things you wouldnt see if you werent on a motorbike trip with these experienced drivers. We stopped at multiple local restaurants where no other tourists stopped and visited some locals at their home. If we could do it over again we would choose multiple tours. Thanks for the amazing experience guys!!”

“I did this motor trip with my friend. We had very nice guides named Viet and dung. They showed us nice places and stopped at beautiful views for pictures. They drived save and they had protecting clothes for us. We liked it very much!!”

“We did have a great day with the easyriders today. We travelled from Hue to Elephant spring, had a great lunch ar Langco beach, then travelled to de Hai Van pass, Danang and Marble mountains. We loved the day also my teenagers loved it. We felt very save and secure. We had helmets and vlotjes. I recommend everybody to book with the easyriders. Thank you for one of the greatest day of our life.”

“We road from Da Lat to Ho Chi Minh. We road with Luu, Hoang and Ken and they are so nice and helpful. The whole trip was professional, they are open and they gave us a lot of information about the places we visited! We saw waterfalls, small villages, mountains, tried local food and a lot more! It have been a very exciting tour and it have been a pleasure to be with Luu, Hoang and Ken. We would recommend these guys to all they are the best! Thanks for the amazing tour we hope to see you again!”
