HITsa’s Executive Officer Olly recently spent some time overseas exploring Vietnam. Her travels confirmed that coffee culture is worldwide.
Olly shares her recent experience:
“Given the heat in Vietnam through the year they have taken coffee to a new level with the variety on offer – many of them Olly tasted throughout her journey.
Hanoi is where Olly first tasted egg coffee at the famous Note Coffee. It is by the lake and it is a must see – every person who visits writes a note and sticks it on a wall in one of the rooms.
The photos do not do it justice but will give you an idea….

Whilst in Hoi An Olly met a young man called Anh (pictured here) who has set up his shop outside his family’s gallery. Anh dreams of owning a commercial espresso machine in the future. He was amazed when Ollu showed him pictures of our commercial espresso training rooms – in his words “look at my goose bumps”.
If you ever visit Hoi An make sure you visit Anh in the old town – his shop is called ‘Sunday Morning Coffee’…..”
If this has spurred your interest in coffee courses, HITsa run espresso coffee training in Mount Barker, Salisbury and Clarence Gardens – head to our website for course details and dates – www.hitsa.com.au
