Make every morning a Tet Offensive with the rich taste of Trung Nguyen Gourmet Blend and Longevity Brand Condensed Milk!

Smell that? You smell that?

Cà phê sữa đá, son. Nothing in the world smells like that.

I love the smell of cà phê sữa đá in the morning.

  1. I need to get some of that Vietnamese milk, get some mileage out of my coffee maker. It’s a sin that I haven’t used it yet.
    A sin, in the eyes of God.

  2. Tonight, you will sleep with your Vietnamese coffee maker. You will give your Vietnamese coffee maker a girl’s name because this is the only pussy you are going to get. Your days of finger-banging ol’ Mary J. Rottencrotch through her purty pink panties are over! You’re married to this Vietnamese coffee maker. This weapon of steel and plastic. And you will be faithful.

    Man, I could do this all night. Pho tomorrow?

  3. OK… that sent me on a quest for the coffee maker. Looks like it would totally rule at the office. I’m getting tired of the multiple ways they have of making goop at the office. (And they all think of themselves as coffee snobs, too.)

    How fine of a grind do you use here?

  4. Hi Huw!

    The Vietnamese coffee filter is intended for use with a French press grind. So what you put in your Bodum, you can put in your cà phê phin. Vietnamese coffee is a little different than most coffee, though…instead of straight arabica like most coffee, it’s made from a blend of four different coffee varietals. It’s got this great chocolately smell and flavor. This is the stuff. You can also get the filter on that site.

    It is a delicate art, though. If you screw down the filter in the little cup too tight, the water takes forever to drip through and gets cold before hitting the grounds and leaves you with weak, watery coffee…and if you don’t screw it down tight enough, the water drips through too fast and…leaves you with weak, watery coffee. Trial and error!

  5. Howdy!

    Hmm. Learning new stuff all the time. Ok. I’m down with the grind. have to get the stuff though. This will require a trip to the Vietnamese grocery in Hamilton.

  6. The stuff is preground. Which is too bad, actually, because I would love to have the Vietnamese blend in whole bean form. Their coffee market is still developing, though, so I imagine once they realize the market for whole beans, you’ll start seeing it around…

    Also, at the Vietnamese grocery, check for Longevity brand condensed milk! It’s a white can with a drawing of an old man with a long white beard (Sort of like…Pai Mei…actually…). The best condensed milk evar. Can’t make Vietnamese coffee without it.
