My New Love: Old Fashioned Vietnamese Coffee

Vietnamese coffee

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.

    i usually take my coffee ritual with me. We have a travel coffee press, and hot water kettles seem to be standard issue in Asia. I’ll either bring my own coffee pre-ground or get some locally.

      Hi Mason,
      I never did before, but this Vietnamese coffee press is small enough that I might start bringing my own.

    Great for a mid day pick me up without the extra liquid in search
    Of a public pay toilet.

    Glad that you love our coffee 🙂
    White mocha is actually taste better than condensed milk. What state are you? You can find condensed milk in most asian market. If you need some, email me and I’d be glad to send you some condensed milk cans.

      Thanks! I’ve been using good old carnation sweetened condensed milk, but we have a good Asian market right up the street.
