- Nam 2 See (The Two Colors River)
So I posted a Paksan Song for a Paksong Coffee post, kind of confusing. This song was given to me by Seeharhed when I did a post on the Two Colors River, I thought I share it with you. It’s a beautiful song about Paksan Laos.
I finally had a chance to use my Christmas gift, Mr. Coffee and I brewed some Lao Coffee this morning. This coffee was given to me as a gift by my relative in Pakse and one of the most checked items that I brought back. I thought I had to give it up at Kunming Airport in China, the security person couldn’t speak English and kept sniffing the coffee, finally he gave it back to me and smiled, “Kafe?” he said. I nodded my head and smiled back, I was glad to get it back.
My relative bought it from Ba Jeang Resort in Pakse where it’s known for its beautiful Tad Pha Suam Waterfall. The owner of the resort is Thai and his wife is Lao from Vientiane, so not surprised to see both Lao and Thai writing on the Lao Coffee bag.
Lao grounded coffee is a lot finer than the ones sold at the local supermarket, and tastes bitter also, some of my sisters don’t like it because of its bitter taste.
Since I like my version of Starbucks Coffee Jelly so much, I thought I give it a try with Paksong Lao Coffee. I brewed Lao Coffee, added brown sugar and let it sits to cool. Then I topped it off with coconut milk.
Another version is to add Chaokoh Cononut gel in syrup if you like it sweet.
