**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

I loved this tour/class. I've wanted to join it before but the dates and times never worked out. I was so glad that I checked the calendar today and it was just starting. Lê Hoàng is so knowledgeable and passionate about coffee. A friend brought me a coffee filter from Vietnam several years ago and now I know all the (many) things I've been doing wrong! I'm excited to give it another go following Lê Hoàng's careful steps. I would recommend this tour even for non-coffee drinkers as it's just generally interesting to hear about the types of coffee used, how to judge the quality of the coffee and the brewing technique, and especially about the differences in how coffee is enjoyed in different parts of the country. Absolutely fascinating! Lê Hoàng I thought your descriptive words like muddy were exactly right. Don't change a thing. Maybe we could have a lesson in pho??
