ca phe phin – the morning ritual

If you want to make the best cup of coffee in the world, first you need the best coffee and I can’t go past Vietnamese coffee for that. Then you need one of these small tin gadgets known as a phin. The phin is a small metal filter which you sit directly on the top of your cup and into which you place the coffee, compress it, and pour boiling water over, once to thoroughly wet the coffee and the second time to allow it to drip through. After that all you need is a little patience, (best to go away and do something else as I am right now) and viola, ca phe den nong!!
