Although Vietnamese Coffee is not as fine as Indonesian Coffee, they have more civet cats to compensate for it hence Civet Cat Coffee (Chon in Vietnamese or Weasel Coffee in English) is the Most INEXPENSIVE Civet Cat Coffee in the World! (Note Indonesia (Coffee Luwak) and Philippines (Coffee Alamid) also exports this blend made from coffee beans excreted by civet cats and cost $ 600 a pound in the US. it only cost 140,000-200,000 Vietnamese Dong (VND) or 8 tp 10 US Dollars to buy 100 grams or about $ 41 for 1 pound (454 grams! Talk about cheap, it is even cheaper than Kona Coffe of Hawaii!) of it but you must know how to haggle for it, you can bring it down to 125,000 VND!

if you don't want to haggle then just Buy Trung Nguyen Weasel Coffee in any supermarket, they are the Nescafe of vietnam!

beware: there are replica civet cat coffees and they sell much cheaper so be sure that you are buying the real thing
