Super easy Vietnamese Iced Coffee recipe (or ca phe sua da), this version is the ultimate refreshing coffee drink that requires just 2 ingredients.
Servings: 1
Prep Time 3 minutes
Cook Time 7 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes

Equipments:

  • Vietnamese-style coffee filter phin or similar device for making strong coffee

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp Cafe du Monde (or Robusta coffee Trung Nguyen) coarsely ground
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 tbsp Condensed Milk
  • 1 cup ice cubes

Instructions:

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.

Vietnamese Iced Coffee:

  • Follow the steps above, then slowly pour the mixture over a glass of ice. Stir and enjoy.

Shaken Vietnamese Iced Coffee:

  • Complete the steps for hot coffee above. Pour the mixture in a tall glass or cocktail shaker with about 1 cup of ice. Shake until foamy. Serve over ice.

Notes

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.
