What sets this brew apart? 

Picture this: a harmonious blend of robust black coffee, velvety condensed milk, and a whisper of salt, crowned with a rich cream. The salt doesn't just add flavor; it elevates the entire experience, cutting through the coffee's bitterness and dancing in perfect rhythm with the sweetness of the milk. It's a flavor symphony that's both unexpected and utterly satisfying.

From its beginnings in Hue, where it was once viewed as a curious oddity, salted coffee has surged in popularity across Vietnam. Its appeal has grown so strong that even international coffee chains have embraced this salty-sweet innovation. But Vietnam isn't alone in its salt-in-coffee tradition - this practice echoes age-old customs from Turkey to Siberia.

As the world's second-largest coffee exporter, Vietnam is no stranger to pushing the boundaries of coffee culture. From the iconic Ca Phe Sua Da (iced coffee with condensed milk) to adventurous variations like egg coffee, Vietnamese coffee continues to captivate global palates.
