25 Unique Coffee Experiences From Around the World - Vietnam & New York

Various coffee experiences of different authors around the world

12. Coffee from Vietnam.


We recently tried Vietnamese egg coffee (Cà Phê Trứng) in Hanoi and I would highly recommend it to anyone passing through. If you’re put off by the sound of eggs in coffee, don’t be – it’s not the soggy scrambled eggs I’d envisaged, rather an indulgent, silky coffee-flavoured custard.So what’s actually in it? The topping is a combination of egg yolk and condensed milk whipped together until thick and creamy. Once this is spooned into a glass, strong black Vietnamese coffee is poured over the top and left to sink to the bottom. It’s sweet, sinful and definitely more of a dessert than a coffee. It’s delicious though, and I can honestly say it’s the only time I’ve seen a server looking envious delivering a drink! You can find egg coffee all over Hanoi, but the photo attached was taken at Hanoi Social Club. Word on the street is that Cafe Giang is also a top place to indulge.

13. Coffee from New York.

Ferrara Bakery & Café – This place has been described as ‘an over-the-top New York experience’, but surely that’s what you want when visiting the Big Apple?! I have to restrict my coffee fixes, as I am a nightmare to be around when high on caffeine, so I have high standards for my limited rations. The café latte really hit the spot, rich, smooth and creamy. Liquid gold! Perfect alongside their delicious chocolate cake. I was sugared up and bouncing off the walls, ready to explore the rest of NYC all for just a few dollars!
