Cold Brewed Coffee

Usually, Vietnamese Iced Coffee is made using hot brewed coffee, but since I’ve started cold brewing my coffee I am more in love now with iced coffee than before. There are many benefits of brewing your coffee cold and although it takes a long time, it’s worth it.

Vietnamese Cold Brewed Iced Coffee tastes amazing and since it is cold brewed there are almost no acidity in it which means it is gentle on your stomach. Not only that, but cold brewed coffee is delicious and sweeter in taste.

You can try any type of coffee to cold brew. When it comes to coffee it totally depends on your taste. Some like it strong others like it light.

  1. I have really enjoyed the recipes from your blog. My question, What makes Vietnamese Coffee. Is it coffee from the country or is it the way it is flavored.

      Hi James, I’m glad you liked my recipes. Vietnamese iced coffee is similar to any iced coffee except they use condensed milk and filtered coffee. I just made it a little different by using cold brewed coffee 🙂

  2. This does look refreshing. I wish I liked coffee! I know tons of people would love this though.

    My husband is a huge fan of iced coffee. In fact, I bought him a Toddy for his birthday. I’ll have to show him your recipe .. I know he’ll enjoy the Vietnamese flavors x

  11. This looks so yummy. I’ve been into iced coffee recently but never heard of this type. Also the wait must be so sweet once it is done since it seems like it takes a while.

    I’ve heard a lot of good things about Vietnamese coffee but I have not tried it myself. This sounds amazing. I can definitely make my own at home!

  13. I just made hot coffee. This post makes me wish I’d have gone cold brewed instead.

  14. I was not able to taste the local Vietnamese coffee, only their signature tea and I loved it! I guess this is the time to experience the cold brewed one.

  15. Great recipe there you’ve shared! A must-try!
