As one of the main coffee bean producers in the world, Vietnam has its unique coffee style. I went to the famous Bến Thành Market, to scout some good coffee beans. I found some interesting roasting method. Almost all the beans were roasted with some sort of butter, which gives the beans a oily and shining coat together with sweet and caramel smell.
Famous beans like “blue moutain” are incredulous cheap, costing about 5-6 SGD per 100g. I am curious how this buttery roast will affect the taste of I use these beans to make my espresso at home, so I bought some. I will report the taste after I try it out with my La Pavoni.
