PJ’S VIETNAM

 

Rick Yvanovich is extremely passionate and serious about coffee (and tea, but that’s a whole separate story).  Within days of living in Viet Nam he fell in love with cà phê sữa đá (iced milk coffee) and after 25 years of drinking it whilst living and building his business in Viet Nam and around the region, he realized that there was no true Vietnamese coffee concept readily available outside of Viet Nam.

Rick also thought that the quality and styles of international coffee coming into Viet Nam, were not the greatest and while they might be trendy, they did not match Vietnamese “tastes” or educate the Vietnamese consumer about coffee or create a unique coffee experience.

True to his entrepreneurial spirit Rick found and fell in love with PJ’s Coffee of New Orleans.  New Orleans has a hot and sticky climate that is similar to Vietnam, a history, culture and gastronomy that are French inspired, with warm and friendly people.  Rick thought PJ’s Coffee would be perfect for the Vietnamese consumer and decided to bring PJ’s to Viet Nam.

PJ’s Coffee is unique!  It selects only the top 1% of Arabica beans and roasts its coffee in small batches that results in a superior coffee that is above the rest.   PJ’s Coffee has received numerous international awards as the most flavourful coffee because of its philosophy to select the best coffee beans in the world and slow roast them to perfection.

Enjoy the uniqueness of PJ’s Coffee and join us for a delicious cup of roast coffee or one of our many specialty drinks and delicious foods as we open our stores throughout Viet Nam.  Our first store opens in Ho Chi Minh City at Vincom B in August 2016 and additional stores will open in HCMC during 2016 and 2017.
