7 Steps To Make Vietnamese Coffee – Café Sua Da

Café Sua Da is extremely a Vietnam drink. Southern men, especially Saigonese, sip Café Sua Da or Café Da (without milk) almost every morning before work.

Morning Café and news- papers in the morning has been turning into a part of Saigon lifestyle.

To me, coffee awakes  my morning mind with Zen ethos. Like ones, I sip the coffee little by little.

Café Sua Da is more tasty and enjoyable when served at nice places, right person, certainly, in the morning. Best sites in Vietnam for early morning coffee: Daklak, Dalat, Kontum, Khe Sanh and Hanoi.

The most easy recipe is from Steamy Kitchen. I edited a little bit  with folks sense and experience.

P.S I enclosed the best coffee song ever in Vietnam (Composer. Nguyen Cuong. Signer. Siu Black)
The song for love and coffee from Buon Ma Thuot, the best Vietnam’s coffee town.
” Ly Cafe Ban Me”

Enjoy Café Sua Da,

Add 2 tablespoons of ground coffee to the base of the coffee press Note: if you want a much stronger coffee, Wandering Chopsticks recommends to wet the grounds just a bit to let them expand. About a spoonful of water should do the trick!

Note.
The longer it takes, the stronger the coffee. Notice that there are only a few drops per second.  If the coffee is dripping too fast, then use a small spoon or tip of knife to screw the press on tighter, 1 turn clockwise. Or if it’s dripping too slow, unscrew 1 turn counter-clockwise.

Step 6: Get ice. Once it’s finished, stir well.
