If you want an exotic drink that will make your taste buds tingle you’re in for a treat. Vietnamese iced coffee is exactly what you’ve been looking for. It’s a traditional coffee recipe originating from Asia. But we can also thank the French for introducing coffee to Vietnam for this lovely recipe.
But what is amazing about Vietnamese iced coffee is that it is so easy to prepare and you can have your drink prepared in a matter of minutes. All you need is a French drip filter which you can find almost anywhere online, and if you have Vietnamese stores nearby it will be even easier for you to buy one.
But don’t worry too much about not having the filter, because there are variety of filters available and you can still improvise. Next you’ll need dark roast coffee, preferably medium grind or medium-coarse grind. The last item to have ready is sweetened condensed milk. Of course don’t forget the ice, because we’re making Vietnamese iced coffee.
