Recipe: Vietnamese Iced Coffee

Vietnamese Coffee is a rich and intensely brewed coffee using a traditional Phin filter (or French Press) that drips down into a glass of sweetened condensed milk, served either hot or iced. If you want a unique gourmet coffee experience with very minimal effort, then you're in for a brewed awakening.

Total time: 8 minutes
Makes: 1 glass of coffee

Vietnamese Coffee Filter (In my case, I used a French Press since I don't have the Phin filter.)
Ground Coffee (preferably medium coarse grind)
Sweetened Condensed Milk

Put about 1/3 of sweetened condensed milk in the glass bottom. You can always add more later if you want your coffee sweeter.

Add 2 tbsp of coffee ground to the base of your French press.

Pour 400 ml of hot water into the French press. Press down slowly and let the coffee steep for  5 minutes.

Stir the brewed coffee into the condensed milk.

Add ice with coffee and stir again. Hot Vietnamese Coffee is made the same way but excluding the ice.

Drink up while the weather in the UAE is still warm! Have fun!


  1. In the relatively recent past, making some espresso was not any more confused than choosing your most loved brand of moment espresso and heating up a pot. How things have changed!
