Topic: New Coffee Experience (8 msgs / 168 lines)
1) From: gregcoffeeroast
Last night the husband of one of my wife's friends stopped by the house looking for me. He said he noticed I liked coffee, and he had brought me a brand new Vietnamese filter. I had never seen one of these before, and he had to give me some instructions on how to use it.
I ground some coffee to a little finer than french press (20 clicks above 0 on my Rocky), and put 7 grams into the filter. It took around 5 minutes for about 3 ounces of 200 degree water to make its way through the filter into my pre-heated, insulated cup. I was pleasantly surprised at the results.
The coffee tasted stronger than french press coffee but not as strong as espresso. It was smooth, somewhat heavy on the tounge, and surprisingly sweet. Yet one more way to enjoy coffee, and one I'll be experimenting with more in the future.
I sent the individual home with 1/2 pound of freshly roasted beans with instructions to give it a 3-4 day rest before using.

They are great. It is usually made with a bit of sweetened condensed =
milk in the cup. The coffee drips onto the condensed milk. It is also =
very good iced. After it drips through stir and pour over ice cubes.

These are my favorite lunch-time beverage when eating at vietnamese
places here in SF. Always over the sweetened condensed milk and iced.
Usually, I can finish half my lunch before it's ready to mix and pour.
I haven't tried them with homeroasted coffee. I've looked for the
actual filter assemblies but only half-heartedly. The last thing I
really need is another way to brew coffee...

Yes

Don't forget to cut the coffee with some chicory. I always ask what kind of 
coffee they use and they always bring out a bag of Cafe Du Monde - which 
contains chicory....At least, in NYC...
