You may have sipped coffee brewed with an aluminum filter or a bean-to-cup coffee machine. But have you ever had coffee made using a cloth filter, or Cà phê vợt in Vietnamese?
If not, head to the 60-year-old Cà phê vợt (coffee brewed with a cloth filter) at 330/2 Phan Dinh Phung Street, Phu Nhuan District, HCMC, to taste this kind of coffee that first appeared in the 20th century.
Coffee powder is put into a cloth filter and then brewed in a ceramic pot. After some 10 minutes, the brewed coffee is poured into smaller pots made of aluminum to serve guests.
