How To Use Vietnamese Coffee Maker
Here are some simple steps you can take to use Vietnamese Coffee Maker.
1. Add Condensed Milk to Glass
First, you put pure milk in this Vietnamese Coffee Maker, open the lid of this coffee maker and add milk to it as you wish but at that time you did not put water and coffee beans in this coffee maker.
2. Add Ground Coffee to Filter
In the second step, you must first remove the top cover of the coffee maker’s filter. Now put a tablespoon of coffee beans in it, coffee beans, whether thin or slightly thick, will work. Some versions of this version use the Chakori type. You can also use the Cafe du Monde type of coffee to make coffee. Make sure you add 1/2 teaspoon of coffee beans to this coffee maker.
3. Cover with Top Filter
Now keep screwing the filter above until it is in place properly. If you decide to use coarse grinding, you will need to tighten your coffee maker filter.
4. Set Brewer Over Glass with Stand
The advantage of brewing into a glass instead of a mug is you can watch the brewing take place.
5. Add Hot Water
At this stage, cover your coffee maker with warm water. When you fill it, try to let your water cool for 30 seconds. It should take 4 to 5 minutes for the water to pass through the filter. If it gets too fast, you can either tighten the filter above or use a coarse grinder. If it moves too slowly, either the grinding is fine or the filter is too narrow. You can also put a lid on the coffee maker’s filter but I don’t because I have to keep an eye on the coffee brewing.
6. Wait for Brew to Complete
The easiest part for you is just waiting for the coffee maker to pass through the water filter. For the first few drinks, use a timer. Coffee drips through the filter. Aim for 4 to 5 minutes. If you are out of this range.
7. Mix the Coffee and Condensed Milk
Now shake the cow’s milk well in the yellow coffee. Some recipes require the addition of extra sugar. I found the drink quite sweet, but let your lock be your judge.
8. Add Fish Sauce (Optional)
In some places, the Vietnamese coffee maker will have a fish sauce at the end of the lifting of the teeth and will stir it in the coffee. I believe that the reason for doing so is that a little salt or salty taste is known to cut the bitterness. Dark roasted coffee, especially French roast, is more bitter. So just adding a small amount of fish sauce, which is salty, can make a heavily baked coffee taste smooth. If the coffee you are using is not a black roast, I will skip this step.
9. Serve With Ice
Now you can finally drink your own coffee with ice. Your coffee is completely ready and you can simply serve it in a cup if you like or serve with ice if you like.
Vietnamese Coffee Maker can make two types of coffee for you, one is ice cold coffee and the other is coffee made in any type of coffee maker. Now it is up to you to decide which coffee you like to drink. There are also some things you need to keep in mind so that your coffee maker can support you for a long time. You must clean your coffee maker about 2 times a month. Also, keep your coffee maker in a clean place so that no viruses, bacteria, or fungi can attach to your coffee maker.
