Vietnamese-style coffee is not unique to Vietnam, also being popular in Laos, Cambodia and Thailand. The brewing style is low-tech, using a simple metal filter called a phin (most likely originating in Cambodia in the 1800's) that is essentially a single-serving brewer and filter (just add hot water!).
In Vietnam, coffee is not consumed on the run. People sit in cafes or at home and leisurely brew the coffee at the table in single servings. The phin filter also works beautifully for making a tall glass of Vietnamese iced coffee. For best results use Trung Nguyen Vietnamese Coffee.Hot Vietnamese Coffee
