A Vietnamese Coffee Tutorial

You will need:
Chickory Coffee (Sometimes called Lousiana Style)
Sweetened Condensed Milk (Not Evaporated Milk)
Vietnamese Coffee Press (We got ours at World Market for around $5)
1 coffee cup for brewing the coffee
1 glass of ice (packed)
Boiling Water
Add two teaspoonsful of sweetened condensed milk into an empty coffee cup. We don't like ours very sweet, and this seems to be the perfect amount. Add more or less to your liking.

Set up your Vietnamese coffee press on top of the coffee cup with the sweetened condensed milk in it.

Add four teaspoons of chickory coffee grounds. It's supposed to be strong.

Place the "press" on top of the grounds...

Pour in the boiling water filling the coffee press to the top. Allow water to drip through.

Fill the pot again and allow the water to drip through once again.

Remove the coffee press from the coffee cup and set aside. Be careful as it will be hot. Stir the coffee well to fully incorporate the sweetened condensed milk and pour the coffee over your cup of ice. A lot of the ice will melt so add more to your liking and stir.

Add a straw and serve. Drink it up and then do the dishes, wash the sheets, vacuum & mop the house, scrub the baseboards, make two kinds of home-made cookies, wash the dishes again, and then wash the car.


  1. Yummy!
    I wanna try! I love the condensed milk in my regular coffee!

  2. You are so lucky to live by a big city where you can get things like that. We have Wally World and a Dollar tree. Other than that its Drive to Muskogee, and still if Dillards or Penneys doesn't have it. Life sucks in Oklahoma today.
