really enjoyed our experience here!! Learned a lit about the process of tea and coffee making and the Vietnamese culture surrounding tea and coffee. Our instructor Dai was very friendly and allows for hands on participation in the tea and coffee making! Would highly recommend this experience!!

As horas que passamos no Café Minh foram muito divertidas, aprendemos muito e nos sentimos à vontade para interagir com a Luísa, nossa instrututra. Ela nos ensinou a preparar chá da maneira correta e 3 tipos de café: café vietnamita tradicional, egg coffee e white coffee. As explicações foram muito detalhadas, com várias pequenas dicas que fazem toda a diferença no produto final. Ainda recebemos informações interessantes sobre a procedência do café e do chá bem como do surgimento do egg coffee. Recomendo esta atividade a todos que gostem de café e de cultura. Não ficarão desapontados!

Un bon moment dans un endroit très jolie et originale. La personne qui nous a appris les différents cafés était très gentille et connaissait très bien son sujet. Une petite expérience agréable, avec une personne qui a le sourire dans un bel endroit, je recommande si vous souhaitez retrouver un peu de calme à Hanoï !
