Vietnamese-style coffee, brewed through a stainless-steel drip filter called a phin, is potent and concentrated. It's combined with sweetened condensed milk, which tempers the bitterness, and served iced in the classic drink known as cà phê sữa dá. Look for a medium-roast coffee and grind immediately before brewing. The coffee should be ground to the coarseness of kosher salt.
