While our entry into Vietnam may have been a but bumpy, the coffee has been nothing but smooth. In fact, I hesitate to even call it coffee because brewed traditionally it’s more like coffee syrup- I’ve been ordering it as dessert while the kids enjoy coconut ice cream. With strong notes of chocolate and caramel I haven’t felt deprived a bit. Last night I even asked the waitress to bring out the coffee so I could see the brand: Trung Nguyen.
Today my mission is to find a grocery store and stock up, and to pick up one of the specialty brewers they use over here for a single cup of nirvana. Fortunately, if I don’t make it, the items are easily located on Amazon. The Vietnamese Slow-Drip, Single-Cup Serving Brewer is only $6 shipped and Trung Nguyen Coffee is available as well.
The best recipe I’ve seen to make it at home comes from Hungry Huy. I usually don’t have condensed milk at home so I’ve been using regular milk fortified with a large scoop of powdered. Not perfect, but it’s pretty good.
What coffee rituals have you taken home? Please share in the comments.
