Vietnamese iced coffee with sweetened condensed milk

Talking about Vietnamese cuisine, you may know Banh Mi – Vietnamese baguette or Pho - Vietnamese noodle. Besides this well-known Vietnamese food, we also have many other delicious food and beverage such as Ca Phe Sua Da – Vietnamese iced coffee with sweetened condensed milk.

A cup of Vietnamese iced coffee with sweetened condensed milk and Banh Mi sandwich is the perfect combination to get ready for a new day in Vietnam.

Milky, nutty, and chocolate are significant notes that you might recognize easily when drinking Vietnamese coffee. Robusta or the blend of Robusta and Arabica coffee beans is usually used to make this drink. These beans are roasted from medium to dark levels. Additionally, sweetened condensed milk is a compulsory ingredient because it will create the sweetness and creaminess of this well-known drink.

Generally, to make Vietnamese coffee, we need a Phin filter, Vietnamese coffee ground, sweetened condensed milk, and hot water (and some ice cubes for the ice version). If you do not have a Phin filter (the classic Vietnamese coffee dripper), Vietnamese coffee can be made by espresso shot. Roll down the page to reach our detailed instructions.

In Vietnam, there are two versions – hot and iced Vietnamese coffee with sweetened condensed milk, it totally depends on personal taste. However, as a tropical country as Vietnam is, the temperature is always high and it lasts long all around the year; therefore, we prefer to drink iced version.

Besides that in Hanoi – Vietnam’s capital, we also have Egg coffee – Ca Phe Trung. It is made from egg yolk, condensed milk, coffee, and a little cocoa powder on top. If you are interested and want to try this drink, please let us know in the comment below, we could consider introducing you in the near future.

Nowadays, at Tea ’n’ Roll, you can order Vietnamese Milk Coffee from our menu or make your own drink at home with our Phin and coffee ground by following the recommended instructions below.

The Phin and Trung Nguyên coffee ground can be found at Tea 'n' Roll.


• 2 tablespoons of ground Vietnamese coffee

• The Phin (Vietnamese coffee dripper)


Step 1: Put the sweetened condensed milk into a heatproof glass.

Step 2: Add ground coffee into the Phin filter.

Step 3: Tap the Phin to flat the coffee ground and gently insert the metal coffee filter on your Phin.

Step 4: Put the Phin filter on top of your glass.

Step 5: Bloom the coffee with 20ml of hot water. Wait for 60 seconds and pour the rest of the hot water to drip.

Step 6: Wait until there is no water in the Phin (usually about 5-7 minutes), take the Phin out, and use a spoon to stir well the mixture of coffee and condensed milk.


If you prefer a cold drink, fill the glass with ice cubes and pour the coffee mixture into the glass.
