Vietnamese Iced Coffee

Vietnamese Iced Coffee 2If you want an exotic drink that will make your taste buds tingle you’re in for a treat. Vietnamese iced coffee is exactly what you’ve been looking for. It’s a traditional coffee recipe originating from Asia. But we can also thank the French for introducing coffee to Vietnam for this lovely recipe.

But what is amazing about Vietnamese iced coffee is that it is so easy to prepare and you can have your drink prepared in a matter of minutes. All you need is a French drip filter which you can find almost anywhere online, and if you have Vietnamese stores nearby it will be even easier for you to buy one.

But don’t worry too much about not having the filter, because there are variety of filters available and you can still improvise. Next you’ll need dark roast coffee, preferably medium grind or medium-coarse grind. The last item to have ready is sweetened condensed milk. Of course don’t forget the ice, because we’re making Vietnamese iced coffee.

 

So let’s recap what you’ll need:

¤ French drip filter or easily accessible alternative

¤ 2 tbsp. of preferably dark roast medium coarse coffee

¤ 2 tbsp. of sweetened condensed milk

¤ 1 cup of water

¤  ice cubes

¤ your favorite mug and spoon to mix it all into

And how you make it? Easily.

Vietnamese Iced CoffeePut your ground coffee into the filter. Then boil the water. While you’re waiting for the water to boil, put condensed milk and ice into your favorite mug. Different people have different measurements, but don’t put too much otherwise it will be too sweet. Once the water is boiled put the filter above the mug. Then pour the water into the filter and wait for the coffee to brew. It will take a few minutes. Once it is brewed use a spoon to mix the coffee and milk. If you want to taste it to decide whether it is sweet enough for you, now it is the right time. If everything is how you like it, then feel free to add more ice; either let it melt for a few seconds or stir it up to fasten the process. And that’s it, enjoy your Vietnamese iced coffee. I’m sure you’ll like it.
