Timen Swijtink had been in Việt Nam for over a decade when he met Korean newcomer, Scott Sehoon Bahng. One came from a background in consumer brand development, the other a seasoned coffee professional. Together, they hatched a plan for sharing Vietnamese coffee and culture with curious people everywhere, and the vision of Lacàph was born.
These first roasts would become Lacàph's Signature Blends, for phin, filter and espresso, and in early 2020 they were ready to launch their company. It’s not been smooth sailing, but Lacàph has gone from strength to strength and is now a premium Vietnamese coffee brand. With their vision always in mind, Timen and Scott continue to share Vietnamese coffee and culture with curious people everywhere.
