Vietnamese Coffee

Vietnam is a strong exporter of coffee with many plantations in the central highlands.

Vietnamese coffee is made using medium to coarse ground dark roast Vietnamese-grown coffee with a small metal Vietnamese drip filter. After the hot water is added, the drip filter releases drops of hot coffee slowly into a cup.

A popular way to drink Vietnamese coffee is with sweetened condensed milk. This is done by filling up with the coffee cup with about 2-3 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk prior to the drip filter process.
