Not that long ago I have the pleasure of dining at a Vietnamese-French restaurant. They make homemade sandwiches, soups, and pastries. Even their own mayonnaise and dressings. It was divine! As we were leaving my friend insisted I try their coffee. And I am so happy I did! I loved it!!
She gave me a mini history lesson, telling me how coffee was introduced into Vietnam by a French Catholic priest and I was intrigued. So for my birthday she gave me some goodies including a jar of Café du Monde so I could make this yummy concoction at home.
To make my Vietnamese Coffee I used a Vislep Coffee Dripper. It's made of kitchen grade stainless steel, is dishwasher safe, and gives you a perfect brew every time.
This coffee dripper is extremely portable, unlike its bulky counterparts. It allows the perfect brew to pass through its mesh but no unwanted coffee grounds.
It left me with a bold but not bitter perfect coffee taste. The chicory blended with condensed milk gives you a rich, smooth texture that is mellow. My favorite coffee attributes all in one cup! Just as good as my homemade Iced Cold Brew Caramel Macchiato!!
Vietnamese Coffee Recipe

I had never heard of this before. I had no idea that there was a Vietnamese version of coffee any different from the coffee I see every day, lol.

I didn’t either until my cousin took me to a Vietnamese restaurant
I didn’t know there was such a thing. Thanks for posting!
First time I’ve seen Vietnamese coffee made without a phin. Your way is nice and easy and doesn’t require any special equipment.
I know. I needed a phin but this was a nice compromise that turned out amazing.
