Vietnamese Coffee (Cà phê sữa (đá)

Cà phê sữa (đá) is the typical Vietnamese iced milk coffee that is served all over the country. You can add ice (đá) or drink it pure. But it is always served with green tea. It is also called ca phe nau da (Vietnamese: cà phê nâu đá, “iced brown coffee”) in northern Vietnam. At its simplest, Ca phe sua da is made with finely ground Vietnamese-grown dark roast coffee individually brewed with a small metal French drip filter (cà phê phin) into a cup containing about a quarter to a half as much sweetened condensed milk, stirred and poured over ice.
