Why Travel Tuesday: Vietnamese Coffee

Every Tuesday, I will be featuring a photograph from a place I have gone to, a photograph which I believe will inspire others to go out and see the world for themselves. I want to encourage people to travel because travel has shown me a lot of beautiful things, has acquainted me with a lot of amazing people, and has taught me lessons I will keep for the rest of my life. For this week, Why Travel Tuesday features the strong and sweet Vietnamese Coffee.

Ca Phe Sua Da (Iced Milk Coffee)

One of the things I was looking forward to when I went to Vietnam last year was their coffee. I have seen it harvested, roasted, brewed and consumed in travel shows one too many times. Typical Vietnamese coffee is made with dark roast coffee beans usually from Vietnam's central highlands. It is commonly drank with ice. Unlike any other coffee, however, it is sweetened and made creamy with a lot of condensed milk. A lot. Fine by me. Clearly, we could all use a little more condensed milk goodness in our day-to-day lives. When I finally had it, it far exceeded my expectations. Definitely better, way better, than the overpriced coffee from that green café found on every street corner.
