  • Step 1: Rinse the coffee-making tools: filter, cup, cup. This will evenly heat the appliance for a better cup of coffee.
  • Step 2: Pour condensed milk into the coffee cup. Normally, for each coffee filter, you should add about 2-3 tablespoons of condensed milk. You can adjust the amount of milk according to your taste. (You can also add milk to the coffee after it’s made.)
  • Step 3: Put the coffee powder into the filter. Shake gently to flat coffee surface. Place the coffee filter on the coffee cup. Use a compression plate to gently press down the coffee powder. It should be compressed just enough so that the coffee flows slowly without clogging the water.
  • Step 4: Let the water reduce the temperature to 93-95 degrees Celsius (for 1-2 minutes after boiling), pour the water just above the surface of the coffee to brew. You can put the filter on the filter lid, pour some boiling water into the lid so that the coffee absorbs the hot water from below. This helps the layers of the coffee to absorb water evenly, helping the coffee taste better.
  • Step 5: After about 1-2 minutes, pour water until the filter is almost full and then close the filter lid.
  • Step 6: Wait for about 3-5 minutes, the coffee will finish flowing. Stir together coffee and condensed milk. You can also add milk at this step and stir. Put the milk coffee into the prepared ice cup. So you can enjoy a delicious cup of iced milk coffee made by yourself.

  • The secret to a good cup of iced milk coffee is to finish brewing the coffee within 5-7 minutes, from the time you start pouring the water. If the water flows too fast (fast brewing time) the coffee will be sour (under). If the water flows too slowly, the coffee will be bitter (over). The average drip rate is about 1 drop/second.
  • However, for pure coffee, or coffee powder with moderate fineness, the drip speed will be a bit faster.
    To avoid residue in the coffee cup when drinking, you should place the filter cap under the filter while brewing coffee. After brewing is complete, put the coffee and residue into the filter.
  • Before adding milk coffee to an iced cup, you need to drain all the water in the iced cup to make the iced milk coffee more flavorful.
