Vietnamese Iced Coffee

Notes: Traditionally, this dessert coffee is brewed by the cup. A small metal coffee filter (found in many Asian markets) filled with fine-ground coffee is placed on a mug containing a generous spoonful of sweetened condensed milk. Water, poured into the filter and coffee, slowly drips into the milk. By dessert time, all the water has drained, and the coffee is poured into a glass filled with ice.
