Despite rapid social development and the arrival of modern coffee makers, filter coffee (and its enjoyment) remains one among Vietnamese people’s favourite drinks (and pastime activities). If you have one in coffee shops, you can take time to observe street life, chat with your companions, read books or newspapers while waiting for the last drop from the filter to land in your cup. If at home, you could also read news stories, watch TV, and chat with family members in a space full of coffee aroma.
Many coffee shops in Saigon still retain the use of coffee filters. Come and experience this drink yourself!
