Vietnamese Coffee Gear?
Though i am an espresso man myself, i do have a couple of Vietnamese friends who i would like to gift to them some Vietnamese coffee filters (Phins). I can grab some run of the mill ones but i would prefer to find some which may be made with a decent level of quality (after all, its meant to be a gift!)
Unfortunately BeanBay does not stock any related viet coffee gear and im not sure if any of the site sponsors do either. (other places do sell them but i would rather support the site sponsors).
Just wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction,
We have had them in the past but getting supply in small volumes of quality ones was problematic.
Best bet would be your local Asian supermarket... and go for the stainless over the alloy.
Thanks Andy, and BeanBay beans you may recommend for this style of coffee?
Also, because the friends would need to have the coffee pre ground, would you be going for the filter or plunger grind?
Hi, I looked around everywhere for these and could not find any Asian supermarket who kept these in stock.
ended up getting some from a friend when they went back to Vietnam.
You can obtain them through other coffee sites however they are not sponsors.
A Vietnamese coffee is fantastic on a hot day!
I bought a kit including coffee at a stand at the Royal Show. Loved the flavour, but it tasted (and smelled) like it was infused with something or were they using specific beans? The coffee was (GASP) pre ground - please don't shoot me.
The kit came with a specific brand of sweetened condensed milk (just the right amount of sweetness apparently) and it was great over ice.
If you want to be traditional, then some of these would be the go...

Or, you can choose an Arabica such as an Indonesian that would probably work pretty well... ;)
