If you want to make Vietnamese Coffee at home, then always look for medium coarse grind coffee. You can use any type of coffee, as long as the coffee is normal to medium coarse grind and not fine grind, as the fine grind coffee would fall from the little holes of the coffee filter.
Usually, French Roast Chicory gives you the best Vietnamese Coffee, so if you can get your hands on French Roast, do give it a try.
What is Vietnamese Egg Coffee?
Vietnamese Egg Coffee is made just like the normal Vietnamese Coffee, the only difference is that in the Vietnamese Egg Coffee, the egg yolk and sweet condensed milk is whipped together until thick and is then mixed along with the freshly brewed coffee.
The texture which you get after whipping up the egg yolk and condensed milk is called Ribbon Stage, as when the beater is lifted the mixture falls like a ribbon.
To serve the the Vietnamese Egg Coffee, add the freshly brewed coffee into a clear glass. Next, pour the egg and condensed milk mixture slowly over the coffee.
You will see that after some seconds the mixture will float on the top, without you having to do anything.
