The right and true way to make a cafe su dai
After my epic failure to make a cafe su dai using colombia coffee bean, i am determined to get my cup of vietnamese coffee the right and true way.
Ensure that you are of course using all the right material and wares before you attempt.
Some vietnamese recommend 红字 sweetening milk. Punch 2 hole so that the milk can flow out like this. Rest can keep fridge for a longer time.
Put in 2 to 3 teaspoon of vietnamese coffee bean and remember not to use other coffee powder other than those you get from vietnam. Shake well for even distribution and compact the powder with centre piece. Not too forceful, compact 85% to enable water to drip through.
Pour in hot water to 7/8 full and you can pour some hot water in bowl to keep the coffee warm through the dripping process.
Dripping of 1 to 2 drops per second is recommended. Check that you really have dark black coffee dripping and wait patiencely for 7 to 8 minutes. Listen to vietnamese song is recommended like how other had recommended. If you want i recommend listening to tim lai bau troi and giac mo qua roi during waiting.
Stir well and enjoy.
Throw in some ice cubes to make cafe su dai for me i prefer using cup from 星巴克.
