The Base Recipe (Hot Coffee):
Boil 2 cups of water.
Add 2 tbsp Condensed milk in a heat-proof glass container.
Remove the lids and the inner filter from the Phin. Add 2 tbsp of coffee grounds to the press. Replace the inner filters. Place the press on the top of your glass
Tap the side of the filter to evenly distribute the coffee grounds, then place the filter press until tight against the grounds.
Place a splash of hot water in the filter and allow the coffee grounds to "bloom" for 20-30 seconds.
Fill the phin filter with hot water all the way. The coffee should slowly drip into the glass below. When brewing is complete, remove the filter and stir well. Serve immediately if enjoying hot.
Shaken Vietnamese Iced Coffee:
1.) You can purchase the Vietnamese Phin coffee filter at Amazon or at your local Asian market or you can use a Moka pot or an Espresso.
2.) Robusta beans are preferred for their bitterness that counterbalances the sweetness of the condensed milk.
