Vietnamese Coffee

Postby blue_thunder » Thu, 15 Jan 2009 5:25 pm

I have been reading about coffee from vietnam and found most of them saying its one of the best coffee's in the world.
One of the distributors quote that a 500g of Trung Nguyen "Legendee" which is the Weasel coffee costs $40 in SG.
Is it worth the money ?
Pls share your views on it , if you have tried one...


Cheers.

VK - one of the charities I am involved in is in Vietnam and I can concur what you have heard - Vietnamese coffee, while some may say is an acquired taste, is indeed brilliant. In terms of here in SIN, the only place I have found thus far is at Changi Airport, T2, adjacent to Concourse C/D.

I'm sure some of our other regulars here will have other options.

If you need a taste I just bought some in, of all places, Taipei, and would be happy to give you a small bag out of ours so you can try it.

HTH, Mr. P

VN coffee is best made with a press or their cup mounted drip unit. There is a Vietnamese resturaunt behind the Singtel building that serves pretty good coffee.

Most times, it comes iced and black or iced with sweetened condensed milk. Either way it's great!

Hi VK, if you have tried and like the 'local Kopi' which you can get from the drink stalls in foodcourts here, I believe you will appreciate the Vietnamese coffee. It's similar to the local coffee here and has an after-taste of nuts.

Will be visiting to get a taste of the coffee and if its gud then would get a pack of coffee powder.
