Hanoi Travel Information | A Coffee Lover's Guide to Hanoi

Did you know that Vietnam is the second largest producer of coffee beans in the world? That’s right, second only to coffee-giants Brazil; the Vietnamese learnt their coffee culture from their time as a French colony in the 19th century and have carried on the tradition long after the French hold was released. Slowly roasted over a low heat until they have a rich, full-bodied flavour, robusta beans are the coffee bean of choice in Vietnam and in a country where coffee is an art form, drinking it becomes a legitimate past time. So get ready to while away an afternoon over a cup because here we bring you the best coffee shops that Hanoi has to offer.
