Crushed Ice

2 tbps (one serving / one part) Sweet condensed milk

Coffee (double shot / two parts)

  2. Pour the coffee into the glass with crushed ice.
  3. Add 1 serving of the condensed milk and stir.

Vietnam Iced Coffee

Preparation is similar to Thai Ice coffee but for those who had taste Vietnamese coffee before, you will know it is definitely stronger!

Dark roast ground coffee beans

Crushed Ice / Ice cubes 2 tbps (one serving / one part) Sweet condensed milk

Chinese Iced Coffee (Coffee Si)

This is a nice coffee which does not use sweet condensed milk but rather evaporated milk. It has a thick flavor.

Coffee

2 tbps full cream evaporated milk

1 tbps sugar Ice cubes

Steps:

  1. Using a coffee maker, make one shot of coffee or 1 serving of coffee.
  2. Mix the sugar in to dissolve.
  3. Then add in evaporated milk.
  4. Serve with ice.

Latte

Perhaps one of the coffee lover’s favorite! Latte is basically espresso with lots of steamed milk and it is pretty easy to make. To make this, you must have an espresso machine with a steam wand to froth the milk.

Steps:

  1. Pour whole milk into the steam pitcher and pace the steam wand at the end of the pitcher. Turn on the steam and slowly raise the wand until it is near the top of the milk. As the milk rises, lower the pitcher so that the steam wand stays approximately 1 cm from the top of the milk. Be careful not to overburn or over froth the milk! Try not to make big bubbles or overstretch the milk. The final result should be smooth consistent milk rather than big foamy milk.
  2. Let temperature of the milk reach around 27 ºC and then place the steam wand deep at the side of the milk. Spin the pitcher anti-clockwise till the milk heats up to approximate 70 ºC. Turn off the steam and clean the steam wand and thermometer with a wet cloth.
  3. Pour the milk into the espresso. If you are creative and want to create some designs with the milk.
  4. Optional: Serve with chocolate/cinnamon powder to add the finishing touch.
