Whether you are a coffee drinker or not coffee in Vietnam is a treat not to be missed. For full disclosure I am not a coffee drinker, but a shot of the dark, strong and very rich coffee in Vietnam hits the spot and is sure to wake you up. At its simplest, Ca phe sua is made with finely ground Vietnamese-grown dark roast coffee individually brewed with a small metal Vietnamese drip filter (cà phê phin) into a cup containing about a quarter to a half as much sweetened condensed milk stirred and then enjoyed. However, many of the cups we had the coffee beans were roasted with corn to add more caramel flavor and a velvety richness that when mixed with the condensed milk is sublime. The condensed milk is used due to the limitations on the availability of fresh milk. This particular cup of Vietnamese coffee was enjoyed in the Mekong Delta in Can Tho. Wherever you visit in Vietnam make sure to try the coffee even if it’s not a daily requirement for you to stay awake.
