    Vietnamese iced coffee

    The cult of coffee in Vietnam harks back to the days of French rule. There’s something about this iced version that’s even more addictive than the hot stuff.

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes, plus cooling
    • Total time: 10 minutes, plus cooling 10 minutes

    Serves: 4


    • 120ml Condensed milk
    • 80-100g Best-quality, roast coffee, ground
    • Ice cubes, to serve
    • 700ml Boiling water


    1. Pour the condensed milk into a coffee jug with a filter top or attachment. Place the grounds in the filter fitted over the jug. Pour a little boiling water over the grounds and leave the granules to expand for a few minutes.
    2. Now pour the rest of the water into the filter and leave it to drip through slowly. This should take at least 5 minutes. Alternatively, you could use a classic coffee plunger and add the condensed milk to the filtered coffee. Leave to cool.
    3. Fill four glasses with ice. Stir the coffee mixture in the jug well and divide between the glasses.
