How to use a VN coffee filter

Vietnamese coffee is surprisingly good. The best preparation I found while visiting was this remarkably simple drip filter made of stainless steel. This little guy takes a few teaspoons of finely ground coffee and makes a unique drip brew that is less concentrated than espresso but stronger than traditional drip coffee. Makes about 4 or 5 oz. of coffee - or a cappuccino cup full.

The preparation is a short routine as detailed below:

1) spoon a few teaspoons of good finely ground coffee into the filter.

2) Screw the top filter (lightly) into place.

3) Pour hot water to fill the filter.

4) Place lid and allow all water to drip through. This can take up to 5 minutes
depending on how fine your grind is and how tightly you have screwed the top filter on.

 For authentic Vietnamese 'Phin Ca Phe' - top the glass with condensed milk and plenty of sugar!!!
