Here at Talk Boba not only do we enjoy a great cup of boba or bubble tea, but we also like to have some coffee from time to time! And when we indulge in coffee, we usually make ourselves Vietnamese coffee.
There’s just something really delicious about Vietnamese coffee compared to other coffees! Maybe because Vietnamese coffee is quite strong, and we need it for longer days. Although we try other types of coffee from time to time, we’ll focus on Vietnamese coffee here.
If you didn’t know, Vietnamese coffee or cafe sua da is usually a bit stronger than other types of coffee. Vietnamese coffee usually has a more energetic boost because of the caffeine amount. If you don’t mind a stronger flavor of coffee plus an extra bit of caffeine, Vietnamese coffee is for you!
