Vietnamese businessman Pham Dinh Nguyen admired the tiny town of Buford, Wyoming, so much he shelled out a whopping $900,000 to buy it.

The coffee importer leapt into action when he found out the town – billed as the smallest in the US with just one resident – was being auctioned off .

Owner Don Sammons – the one resident – had turned it into a bit of a tourist attraction on Highway 80, a place where travelers could buy gas, snacks and other road essentials.

But Sammons decided to sell the tiny burg, and Nguyen traveled from Asia to Wyoming to bid at the auction after reading about the sale on the Internet.

The businessman said he had always hoped to expand his coffee business to the US, and hopes people will sample his PhinDeli brand of java when they pass through Buford.

“Everybody has a dream,” he said a video promoting PhinDeli coffee. “So do I. I have an American dream. [But] this is more than that — this the most famous town in the world: the smallest US town.”
