Asean Anniversary celebration - Viet-Coffee was there
Consul General Le Viet Duyen cited the flag hoisting ceremony clelebrations of the 40th Anniversary of ASEAN as a show of the solidarity behind efforts to build a sustainable ASEAN community by 2015.

An ASEAN community with a rising international profile will facilitate peace, stability, and prosperity both regionally and globally, Duyen said.

The Vietnamese diplomat also highlighted recent landmarks in Vietnam-Australia relations, mentioning successes spanning economics, politics, education, science and technology, and national defence and security.

Viet-Coffee Australia is one of these successes

On the evening of the same day, ASEAN representative offices in Perth also jointly held a culture and food festival to introduce the specialities of the bloc’s member countries to local friends.

Record coffee crop expected in Vietnam
Blombergs reports that Vietnam is expecting the second largest harvest in Years. Expected tonnage is 1.6 million metric tons. This is expected to curb previous prices increases that resulted from Vietnamese farmers holding back beans when there was evidence of a drought in March.

Viet-Coffee Australia is still reviewing pricing with the challenging trading conditions with the falling dollar and Trung Nguyen pushing up pricing as they see their local market hold strengthening.

An unprecedented increase in parcels lost has resulted in some shipping charges increasing. We suggest upgrading your order size to take advantage of better pricing and delivery security on larger packs.

Creative 3 now in the 5 pack

Just updated the store with the Creative 3 five pack

On the coffee news front the Huffington post said this "Higher temperatures, longer droughts and more intense rainfalls have brought coffee producers around the globe more resilient pests i.e. coffee berry borer and higher incidences of plant disease i.e. coffee rust. Furthermore, intense water stress associated with vicious droughts in southern Sudan are driving wild coffee plants to extinction, now predicted to occur by 2020. Coffee beans are the second most globally traded commodity next to oil.

The flavorsome Arabica beans account for 70 percent of all coffee consumed, they are highly susceptible to all the symptoms of a warming world. Already, India has seen its coffee production fall by over 30 percent from 2002-2011. And, by the way, from 2010 to 2011 Maxwell House, Yaban and Folgers increased their coffee price by 25 percent while Starbucks increased its coffee price by almost 20 percent in 2011. Researchers from UKs Royal Botanical Kew Gardens predict that as much as 99.7 percent of Arabica growing areas will become unsuitable for coffee plants as temperatures continue to rise in the coming decades.

Travel tip in Vietnam – Although a reputed 5 million people from HCM return to the country side at TET that still leaves another 5 million behind.

It appears the Vietnamese don't come out en-mass until later in the day. We visited the city centre Wednesday night and I was expecting the city to be quiet - what a mistake!! Right in the city centre some of the streets were closed for all sorts of bands to beat their drum. Very colourful, lively and noisy.

Had a fantastic street restaurant dinner outside Binh Than markets with friends and had lots and lots of tasty food and a kilo of very tasty BBQ prawns with dinner costing less than $15 per head including drinks.

We escaped the throngs to the Caravelle roof top bar - not cheap by Vietnamese standards (probably good by Aussi Standards) and we had a bottle of whisky to share with friends and had very entertaining music.

Special TET offer – still on - buy coffee get a Trung Nguyen Aluminum phin. See previous news for complicated instruction or just ask for it in the comments section of the order (conditions apply)

Breaking news - New improved legendee the coffee of hero's is coming - new blend new price - pricing should be up by next week - see our teaser on Facebook. Vietcoffee Vietnamese Coffee and Tea on Van Collin's page

Free Phin and travel tip
Travel tip in Vietnam – Travel Vietnam at Tet and be amazed at the sights. If in Saigon be impressed by the Fireworks, the May Trees, the pink peach trees and the masses of cumquat trees and red and yellow chrysanthemums

Expect the city to be very busy in the week leading up to Tet as Vietnamese families prepare, cleaning and painting and buying new things for their homes.

Country travel may be a little slower with families trying to get home. Many of the shops including the markets close for a couple of days on the eve and Lunar New Years Day. But being Vietnam many are keen to do business to keep afloat.

This means that this is an ideal opportunity to explore the City centre without the pressing throngs.

Special TET offer – Only for a fortnight buy coffee add a Trung Nguyen Aluminum phin to the cart and at check out add the code ‘FreeTNphin’ and get a free Phin. Limited numbers, one phin per customer, expires in a fortnight.
If you have any problems with the code - just leave us a note in the customer notes section of the order or send us an email so we can fixt it up!
Another Travel tip in Vietnam
Travel tip in Vietnam – The South of Vietnam is hot or hot and wet, The North of Vietnam has 4 seasons that are the reverse of us in the southern hemisphere. Check out the weather via the internet as to what the weather is likely to be.

When we went to Hanoi (not well planned) in the Aussi Summer we had to buy second hand jackets from the local markets to keep warm. Leave light and buy some clothes while you are away – no need to rush out the first day.

Van buys me An Phuc shirts from Parkson shops near the Airport in HCM – they had a 50% off sale, they weren’t cheap but they are very good quality and about $25 - $30 each for short sleeve. The current poor economic conditions have provoked the special sale pricing.

Talking about special – we have added a Creative 1 through to 5 BX1 pack with shipping at special pricing for the first 10 boxes – the price will go up by 10% when these are gone.

Still not sorted out the new pricing of the 2 phin with shipping - they will go up by at least 10% to 15% get in now before I sort out the new pricing.

Van and Hugh's travel tips to Vietnam - Phin x 2 with shipping price increase
Travel tip in Vietnam - Have the address of the destination in Writing - this includes the Ward and District - get a good map of the part of Vietnam you are going to - Be prepared to get out of the taxi if the driver doesn't look like he knows what destination you want and find another that seems to know.

This comes from personal experience when I was travelling with Amy and Jake and not Van. I pronounced the street correctly and gave the correct district and gave the name of a major shopping center at the end of the street, The driver kept on saying the wrong street - so I got out and with Vans help got one that understood.

On another matter Van has been telling me off for a while about the price of the 2 phin with shipping - they will have to go up so get in now before I sort out the new pricing.
