Coffee is simple right? Some grounds with water and heat. However, it's how you mix these ingredients together that makes the fine line between gas station coffee and 5 star. I was a little bored with the regular way of using a dull coffee maker. I noticed when going to my local Vietnamese restaurant they always the best coffee. It was so rich and robust. Unlike anything I could make at home.
My meals there wouldn't be complete until I had my creamy delicious drip of sultry. Last time I was there I finally broke down and just straight up asked the waiter how they made the coffee. Replying in broken English, the young waiter sounded like he was describing some sort of cup water was poured through. I asked if I could buy the contraption off of him and he just gave me a smile and took my plates away. My interest was sparked and I vowed to solve this case of the magical system that somehow transform coffee beans into liquid dopamine.
When I got home, I went straight to Google to see if any clues would pop up about this ancient secret. Turns out, coffee is relatively new to the Vietnamese. However, the coffee grown there is not only fantastic, but so is the way they make it. When I finally reached success, it all made sense. THIS is how coffee needed to be filtered. I immediately bought one and it's been a staple ever since.
Just let this video sink in and make you fall deeply in love with Vietnamese coffee.
