Type Vietnamese Iced Coffee
Brew Time 40s
Ratio 1:3
Bean Dark roast
Equipment AeroPress

Vietnamese iced coffee (or cà phê đá) is made by combining strong coffee with sweetened condensed milk over ice. It's traditionally made using a small metal drip filter known as a phin, but the AeroPress works great too. It works best with a dark or espresso roast coffee, ground about as fine as white sugar.
