Vietnamese people have a precious dignity that we are all proud of - our openness. We always keep an open-minded and being receptive to new things from other cultures. In fact, Vietnamese people first acknowledge coffee through the French when they dominated Vietnam. However, in the South of Vietnam, where was directly affected by French colonialism, Vietnamese people from aristocracy to normal people were still willing to try this new interesting drink.

Vietnamese always use filter to refine the coffee. You can drink coffee directly right after refining it or pour about 1/3 boiling water into the coffee to make it hotter and decrease its thickness at the same time depending on your preference. Some people even add on fresh butter to make the coffee more tasty and also to prolong the heat.

Filter coffee is perhaps an specialty of Vietnam, you are almost unable to find it anywhere else because of the difficulty when serving. However, most coffeeholics in Vietnam and even from other countries like filter coffee very much.

 There are two typical types of coffee in Vietnam and are becoming many foreigners' favorite, they are milk coffee and iced coffee. Vietnamese milk coffee is made with condensed milk. In the North of Vietnam, people call it "brown coffee" because when you add condesed milk, black coffee will slowly turn into brown. In the South of Vietnam, in Chinese coffee shops, they call milk coffee "bac xiu" instead.

Iced coffee is also very popular in Vietnam. Because Vietnam has a tropical monsoon climate, the weather is so hot around the year (except for the Winter in the North of Vietnam), therefore, they like to put a lot of ice into their cup of coffee. Nowadays, Vietnamese iced coffee is also spreaded all around the world.
