About the tour

**Disclaimer - Please note due to Covid restrictions in Hanoi this tour will currently be done at the guide's home** Let's travel! Visit Hanoi city and sit down to brew a cup of coffee. Making a cup of coffee in Vietnam is a whole process that you barely have free time in the middle. But it's also not a really complicated task to start the day with. First, we need a perfect set of filter and coffee, the right filter and the right coffee. We will brew coffee together, step by step. Brewing is not hard, it's just busy. Then I will show you how different our coffee is compare to the rest. How it combines with our special filter to make a perfect pair. The most fascinating part of the coffee making is "the waiting time", which we will experience what it's like to be in a Vietnamese Coffeeshop. And of course, admire the view of Vietnam. Last but not least, COFFEE APPRECIATION. Enjoying a good cup of coffee can be much more if you have someone to guide you through it. Vietnamese coffee usually really strong, so you might be overwhelmed. Don't worry, with my instruction, hopefully you can see all the layers in a sip of Vietnamese coffee, to find out why it's highly addictive. Other things to note Having Robusta Coffee Beans is a must. The taste of Vietnamese coffee can't be found in Arabica Beans. What to bring: Vietnamese Coffee Filter (Phin) Fine ground coffee (Trung Nguyen Cofee) Hot water (80 - 95 celcius) Sugar Condensed milk (if possible) A small plate A full stomach to avoid coffee drunk 2 spoons

Meet your local guide


Over the last 5 years, Hoàng has been a local guide in Hanoi and welcomed thousands of guests to his tours all over the country, and received countless compliments for his hospitality and service. Now Hoàng is bringing his service and Vietnam's coffee to you with this online experience. Hoàng was born and raised in Hanoi City, the heart of Coffee Culture in Vietnam. So he loves coffee by default. Hoàng's father taught him how to brew coffee when he was 6 and since then, he never stopped brewing. Becoming a guide helped Hoàng a lot in improving his coffee brewing skills. He got to know more about the culture and got tips everywhere in Vietnam, from other coffee lovers. And now, he's ready to share his passion with his viewers, fellow travellers and coffee lovers.

Hoàng has been guiding since Sep 2014

Hoang provides a wonderful experience in his tour including this Vietnamese Master Coffee Class. Learning the coffee culture and the steps to make their coffee was very interesting. Also, watching Hoang enjoy sips of his first coffee of his day was delightful. I felt like I was sitting there next to him and enjoying my cup of coffee too. Thank you

As a coffee lover, all I can say is that I loved Hoang's coffee masterclass! He definitely knows his coffee and is so responsive to questions and is generally a kind guy. Thanks for a great experience, mate!
