Vietnamese Coffee

 Coffee was introduced to Vietnam in the late 19th century by French Colonists, where it quickly became a huge hit amongst the Vietnamese. It was also a huge hit for the economy as Vietnam quickly became a huge exporter of coffee.

Vietnamese Coffee (also called cafe sua da) is a type of coffee brewed with a dark french roast often with chicory. It is drank sweetened with condensed milk.  

Cafe sua da is prepared in individual servings.   Coarsely ground coffee is placed in a metal Vietnamese coffee filter that sits atop a coffee cup containing condensed milk.  Hot water is poured into the filter and the coffee slowly drips into cup over a period of about 5-7 minutes. It may also be served cold by adding ice cubes to the concoction.
