What is Vietnamese coffee (Cafe Sua Da)
Cafe Sua Da is a coffee drink made from brewing Vietnamese medium-ground dark roast coffee in a phin coffee filter. A phin is a traditional coffee filter to make a single cup serving of coffee and brews incredibly slowly; however, it makes a stronger, bolder, and thicker coffee. The coffee is then mixed in condensed milk and with/without ice. This condensed milk will create a perfectly balanced coffee and a noticeably different aroma than any other coffee.
This recipe is so simple and you will only need two main ingredients.
- Cold brew
- Condensed milk
- Optional: ice cube
