Indochina is a fantastic destination for travellers for a lot of reasons. The cultures are diverse, the food is delicious and the people are friendly. Few things, though, are as tasty and truly unique as Indochina’s distinctive chocolate-y brew: coffee. Buffalo Tours presents this infographic on coffee, to help make sense of the famous brew in the region of Indochina.

The way that coffee is roasted, brewed and enjoyed in Vietnam and Laos is entirely different from the rest of the world. To say the least, it has to be tasted to be believed. More than just a morning drink, coffee is as much a culinary staple as Vietnam’s “pho” and Laos’ “laap“, and getting a taste of it is a pretty important part of the cultural experience.

Here’s your step-by-step guide to understanding how coffee goes from plantation to your cup in Vietnam and Laos (and how to drink it like a local!).



Thirsty for an aromatic cup of Laotian or Vietnamese coffee? Why not taste it at its source on an adventure through Indochina with Buffalo Tours today!
