How to Brew a Cafe Sua Da, a traditional Vietnam Coffee Style
Vietnamese iced coffee, also known as Cafe Sua Da or Cafe Da is a traditional Vietnamese coffee recipe. Today in this topic, We would show you how to brew a Cafe Sua Da following Vietnamese style
At its simplest, Cafe Sua Da is made with coarsely ground Vietnamese-grown dark roast coffee individually brewed with a small metal French drip filter or Bat Trang Ceramic Gravity Filter into a cup containing about a quarter to a half as much sweetened condensed milk, stirred and poured over the ice.
A Vietnamese filter is a small coffee pot. It looks like a hat and sits on the top of a coffee cup. Inside is a chamber for coffee and room for hot water. It allows the liquid to leak through the filter while keeping the ground coffee inside the chamber. It is very interesting, simple, and works!
This traditional use of filters has been widespread throughout Vietnam. It is available at a small coffee shop or at any home from Hanoi to Saigon. If you have the chance, you should relax and enjoy a cup of Cafe Sua Da with the Vietnamese traditional style
