In 2012, Vietnam became the number one coffee exporting country. Coffee was introduced to Vietnam in 1857 by the French because Vietnam has many regions provide moderate sunshine and rain, steady temperatures and rich porous soil; all necessities for growing superior coffee beans.
Influenced by the French, many Vietnamese drink coffee every day. The coffee can be brewed with a drip filter, coffee from the drip filter drops in the bottom of glass with condensed milk. When it finishes dripping, turn the plug upside down and put the drip filter on it.
