Vietnamese ice coffee
At our house, cafe sua da is an integral part of our morning ritual. Both my husband and mom can’t live without it. And one cup is never enough! Although the French colonists introduced coffee to Vietnam in the mid 19th century, Vietnam has become one of the leading coffee exporters in the world. Vietnamese are quite proud of their coffee and cafe sua da has become a quintessential drink of Vietnam. Coffee is both a social and cultural part of Vietnamese life.
Pour condensed milk into a small glass.
Remove lid and metal screen from coffee filter. Add coffee. Gently twist screen back on until it stops. Don’t push screen all the way down or it will take longer for coffee to drip, unless you prefer a strong brew.
Place filter over the glass and add boiling water. Place lid back on filter.
Let coffee drip for 5 minutes or until all the liquid has drained from filter. If coffee stops dripping sooner, gently loosen the filter to relieve pressure.
Once coffee has finished dripping, remove filter. Mix coffee and condensed milk together with a spoon.
Add ice, stir, and enjoy.
