Vietnamese Coffee is one of my favourite drinks. Hot or on ice, the sweet and creamy condensed milk complement the strong coffee (and sometimes chicory) of the French coffee. In this recipe, I am using the famous Cafe Du Monde brand from New Orleans. If you love it as much as I do, you gotta go and find yourself a Vietnamese coffee brewer. Believe me, it’s worth the effort.
You will need:
- 2 tablespoons Longevity brand condensed sweetened milk
- 2 tablespoons Cafe Du Monde coffee
- boiling water
Simply add the sweetened condensed milk to a small glass and set aside. Add the coffee to the coffee brewer and set (or screw) the top filter firmly on the ground coffee. Set the brewer on top of the glass and pour a little of the boiling water into the brewer to give the coffee an initial soak. Afterwards, fill the brewer to the top and set the lid on. Let the water fully pass through the brewer while you answer some emails or update your Facebook status to “I’m about to have some Vietnamese coffee…WOOT!” When the coffee is done, simply take off the brewer and set aside, stir the coffee and milk to combine and enjoy hot or pour into a glass of ice. Bliss.
