Drinking Vietnamese coffee (cà phê) in Vietnam is one of the things I looked forward to the most during our honeymoon in Da Nang.
As I have described in my previous post, the weather was insanely hot and dry in Da Nang. We were strolling along some streets under the scorching sun when we came across a lil' quaint café called Greeny. My eyes shone in glee when I saw the selection of cà phê, my love.
I recognized two types of cà phê on the menu: cà phê sữa đá (iced coffee with milk) and cà phê sữa nóng (hot coffee with milk). Sữa means milk.
I chose cà phê sữa đá.
At the bottom of the short glass was a layer of condensed milk. A steel canister was placed on top of the glass. Steaming hot black coffee dripped slowly from the steel canister into the glass.
As you can see, the black layer on top was coffee in contrast to the white layer of condensed milk at the bottom.
Ice cubes were served separately. When the dripping stopped, I removed the steel canister, poured ice into the glass, and stirred. Voila! Sweet and refreshing!
We took a peek at the remainder of drained coffee powder in the steel canister before we left the café. :)
