Vietnamese Arabica pour over. #theespressostation Hoi An Old Quarter.
Made from beans grown in the highlands of Dalat Vietnam it has a light coconut pecan flavor that hints towards a depth of date and hickory. With mild acidity and a medium body it wallops with a lot of caffeine. The color is almost Mahogany.
It has a little bit less fullness than the region’s delicious and quintessential robusta bean pour over but is just as rich in complexity. A prefect drink to get a lazy day started in Hoi An at The Espresso Station, a back alley gem tucked amongst greenery on the periphery of the old quarter.
Morning Report: Vietnamese Arabica
Resiliency: 8/10 You can only drink so much coffee, especially one with this much caffeine.
