Salt Coffee – Strange Unique Drink of Hue

Saigon likes iced milk coffee, Hanoi is famous for its fragrant egg coffee. The Hue Imperial City is remembered for its unique Hue salted coffee that can not be found anywhere else.


Although Hue salted coffee is not as old as iced milk coffee or egg coffee, it quickly resonated. And now it has become a typical Hue coffee, winning the hearts of both locals and visitors.

This drink with this strange combination has become the pride of the Hue people. Many people say that coming to Hue without drinking salted coffee makes it impossible to understand the richness and uniqueness of Hue drinks and food.


Salt coffee is a drink that Hue people sip early in the morning. The salty taste of salt seems nothing special, difficult to combine with coffee, but strangely harmonizes through ingenious creativity, which helps to highlight the passionate and aromatic flavor of coffee.

The secret to making delicious Hue salted coffee is that the ingredients must be accurately calculated, and when combined together, they must not be too sweet and fat, nor too salty, but just enough. Bitter taste, but not overpowering, the very characteristic and intense flavor of roasted and ground coffee.


A cup of salted coffee is served very simply, with just a little bit of fermented milk with salt, a traditional aluminum coffee filter, and a little bit of ice mixed together. If this is your first time sipping salted coffee, you will be surprised by the extremely special flavor of these seemingly ordinary ingredients.

The bitter taste of Hue salted coffee is ecstatic on the tip of the fragrant tongue, plus a layer of fatty fermented milk, a little salty salt. They all create an explosive taste party but also a very gentle lingering in the mouth, very strange, unlike any other coffee.
