MEET OUR TEAM
As a small, close-knit team, we prioritise efficiency, agility, adaptability, and consistency.
With a customer- and quality-first mindset, we are here to bring you a better cup of coffee every day.
HANA C. / founder & roaster
SCAE certified Roaster / Brewer / Barista
Hana started roasting and brewing her own coffee in 2014, before taking professional SCAE training at SPC Coffee Academy in Seoul in 2015. She came back to Saigon in 2016 to start 96B Experiment, a small hidden space atop a chocolate and pastry shop.
Enjoying coffee, to Hana, is to drink with an open mind to appreciate the terroir and the hard work by each individual that plays a role in creating a good cup of coffee. There is no right or wrong in coffee. It is an exciting learning curve every day and in every cup.
THAI DANG / co-founder & partner
After finishing her Mphil in Politics at University of Oxford, Thai worked in Saigon for 6 months (where she discovered 96B!) and in Hong Kong for a year before realising that the only thing that makes her happy in life is coffee (besides beer and hard liquor).
Fuelled by espresso, she is in charge of various aspects of coffee education, operations, design, marketing, and long-term planning. Having lived in Korea, the Netherlands, Kenya, England, Hong Kong and visited 50+ countries, she brings in her own experience and outlook on the industry, while firmly believing in the future of Vietnamese coffee.
PHU HUYNH / barista & trainee roaster
You only need 5 minutes with Phu to feel better about your life. His joie de vivre brings life and laughters to every corner.
That said, this guitar-playing and random-melody-humming barista is serious about his work. Apart from enjoying making and drinking a nice cup of our very own Ca Phe Sua Da, he is determined on improving and perfecting his roasting skill.
HOANG NGOC / barista
Ngoc had worked as a barista since October 2017 in various specialty cafes, before choosing to land at 96B in February 2020. One of her reasons? She truly enjoyed out cold brew!
Besides cold brew and hot latte, she never says no to gin, whisky, and fluffy kitties and hamsters.
