  • Saigon (aka Ho Chi Minh City)

    My wife and I visited Saigon two days ago on a cruise ship. I wanted a recommendation of a good coffee place in Saigon. I looked in the NotAU Forum and a couple of members had mentioned Saigon Coffee Roasters. It was quite challenging to find (upstairs off a small arcade of tiny shops and with no visible street signage). However once we finally found it we enjoyed two very good long blacks. They have a two group Slayer and what looked like a Mahlkonig K30 Twin along with various other bits of high end equipment.

    I enjoyed the coffee so much I also got a large “take away” of espresso which I smuggled aboard our cruise ship later. So we have been able to make some iced coffees from our smuggled supplies as a contrast to the Illy they serve aboard.

    My thanks to those who recommended Saigon Coffee Roasters.

    They've also got an easier to find 2nd location near Bui Vien St, but I still really like the original - finding it is half the fun!
