We Talk With Tr’ân Hân, Vietnam’s First (And Only) Barista Champion https://t.co/tDWDFDNqOP

When I asked Tran Han for an interview, it was early in the morning—maybe seven thirty , no later than eight—and she was standing behind a Synesso at Bosgaurus Coffee, tasting shots of espresso ahead of a long day on bar. Han is Vietnam’s National Barista Champion, the country’s first and only barista to hold that particular title (Vietnam first appeared at the World Barista Championship in 2016). And while we talked about her experience competing in Dublin this past year on behalf of her country, our conversation’s scope was much more broad. We discussed gender, the future of the Vietnamese coffee industry, and the power of the barista, pausing every now and again as the sounds of burr grinders ate up the grand, white room. The only moment Han seemed hesitant was when I asked to take her photo; she was concerned about her makeup.
