Vietnamese Iced Coffee (Cafe Sua Da)
Vietnamese Iced Coffee is a tasty and refreshing coffee beverage to start your day with. It can be surprisingly intense and aromatic with the right brewing method.
Servings: 1 person
- 2 tablespoons Vietnamese ground coffee
- 1 cup ice, divided
- 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons hot water, divided
- 1-2 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk (to taste)
Add 1/2 cup of ice (about 6-7 medium ice cubes) to your brewing glass. Place the cup spanner of the phin filter over the glass. Add ground coffee to the filter chamber, try to spread them evenly inside the chamber. Then gently place the filter chamber over the cup spanner.
Place the filter press on top of the coffee inside the chamber and press gently. Add 1 tablespoon of hot water to the chamber and wait for about 20-30 seconds to let the coffee bloom.
Add the remaining hot water and cover the chamber with the filter cap. Wait for the coffee liquid to drip directly onto the ice in the glass through the holes at the bottom of the filter chamber and cup spanner.
Once the filter chamber is empty, remove the filter from the glass. Add 1 tablespoon of sweetened condensed milk (or more to taste) to the glass and stir well to combine.
Add about 1/3-1/2 cup of ice (5-6 medium ice cubes) to your serving glass. Pour the coffee from the brewing glass to your serving glass. Enjoy immediately.
