But first, let’s talk about Vietnamese Iced Coffee.
The weather may be getting chilly, but that doesn’t stop me from drinking iced coffee. Vietnamese Iced Coffee is a simple drink but the combination of strong dark roast coffee and creamy sweetened condensed milk makes it taste completely different than a regular cold brew coffee.
How to Make Vietnamese Iced Coffee
There’s a full recipe at the bottom of this post, but Vietnamese Iced Coffee is easy to make. The only caveat is that you need Vietnamese coffee filter presses. These can easily be purchased online or found at your local Asian market. Here is my recommendation: Vietnamese Coffee Filter Press from Amazon
To make the Vietnamese Iced Coffee is simple, here’s a brief rundown:
- Put some sweetened condensed milk in the bottom of a large heatproof glass.
- Bring a pot of water to a boil.
- Remove the lid and the inner filter from the coffee press. Add some coffee. Replace the inner filter. Place the press on the top of your glass.
- Pour some boiling water into the press and let it start to drip through into the glass of sweetened condensed milk. Fill it to the top. Put the lid on it.
- Once all of the water has dripped through, remove the press. Stir together the coffee and sweetened condensed milk.
- Add ice (optional) and enjoy!
