Intro to Vietnamese Coffee - Cà phê Việt

Dec 1, 2017

Have you ever heard or tasted Vietnamese coffee? It's quite different from your typical cup of coffee, from the type of coffee bean, the brewing method to what kind of creamer and sweetener we put in it. In this video, Zane and I gave you a short history of vietnamese coffee and showed you 5 different ways you can make it.

A coffee phin (drip filter) is used for making Vietnamese coffee. They comes in different sizes and configuration. We're showing you two most commmon types in the videos that you can get in Vietnam and in America. We don't really have a preference as both types can get the job done.

Beside the most popular form - Vietnamese Iced Milk Coffee, you can also make it straight up black and drink it hot or cold. My favorite is Hot Milk Coffee, which is perfect for dipping any doughnut, fried dough, or bread you have at hands. And lastly, an inpiration from Starbucks, Vietnamese caramel macchiato, a lower caffein version of Vietnamese coffee.

Don't forget that you can also enter for a giveaway - a Vietnamese Coffee Kit to try at home. Details are at the end of the video!!! Happy Holidays and Good Luck! We are so grateful for your support and encouragement!
