The aim with Cocobox is to create the kind of place that they always love to discover on their own travels around the world, but never really found in Central Vietnam: a friendly café with passion for organic and local produce, creative juices, excellent coffee and the shelves filled with products from a handpicked selection of local producers.
At Cocobox, you can sit down with a Vietnamese take of a chicken pesto sandwich and a smoothie while watching the hustle and bustle on the street. For a quick fuel for the body, you can have a cold pressed juice or cappuccino, made of beans from Da Lat, along with a chocolate ginger truffle from their local chocolatier. Or perhaps you decide to bring home a beautiful bottle of coffee flower honey from the highlands as a memory of your time in Vietnam.
They love edible souvenirs more than hammocks and tailor-made suits. That’s the simple reason why Cocobox decided to fill the shelves in the Farm Shop with unique products made by small and artisan producers around Vietnam, many of them organic and fairtrade certified.
You will always find a handpicked selection of the very best honey, coffee, tea, spices, coconut oil, natural snacks and even some liqueurs. They also have non-edible products such as unique and locally made tea pots and other ceramic items, the very best of Vietnamese skincare products (massage oils, candles, natural soaps and body butters) and some modern design items.
JUICE BAR & CAFÉ
They don’t want to brag. They are just honest – and proud – when they say that Cocobox have the most extensive juice menu in the whole of Central Vietnam. What makes their juices so magical is that the fruits and vegetables are slowly and gently squeezed. This pressing action, often called ”cold pressed”, doesn’t heat or oxidize the produce like traditional high-speed juicers. The result is a nutritionally packed live juice that is stunning to taste and with all its enzymes, vitamins, trace minerals and other vital elements preserved.
In addition to the juices, the bar has a large selection of creative smoothies, homemade coconut milk, tea and chocolate drinks. Their delicious coffee is Vietnamese of course, produced in the heights of Da Lat, and the mineral water comes from Alba Thanh Tan Hot Springs in Hue.
Cocobox's assortment of bread, cookies, tarts and chocolate truffles are all made in their own bakery. Please check the blackboards for the breads of the day, but be assured that there is always a wide choice of freshly made sandwiches for breakfast and lunch. All to be enjoyed in the cosy café, or as take-away if you are eager to explore the streets of Hoi An’s old town.
