with No Comments

The Dumagueteño’s is calling Dumaguete ”the city of gentle people”…
And gentle people like to sit together with good friends and with ”strangers” as well. Have some decent food and drinks. Always ready to discover some new dishes and drinks.

The MIFUNE team is proud to introduce to our Pilipino guests and our international guests as well now a strong and flavorful original Vietnamese coffee!

Strong and flavorful Vietnamese Coffee
Strong and flavorful Vietnamese Coffee:
Coarsely ground beans go into a French drip filter (called a ”phin”), which sits on top of the cup. The beans are weighted down with a thin lid, hot water is added to the phin, and then the water slowly trickles through into the cup.

A not widespread fact is probably, that Vietnam is nowadays one of the most important countries who is involved in coffee cultivation! Today even the world’s second-largest producer of coffee (second to Brazil). Surprised?!? I guess yes for the most coffee consumers…
At the end of a fine Japanese food experience, we have been offering our guests imported Italian coffee for years.
Italian or Vietnamese coffee? > Same – but different!
A very unique preparation process and the blend of beans, give to the Vietnamese coffee its particular style & taste. Coarsely grounded beans filled into a French drip filter (it’s called ”phin”), which is placed on top of the coffee cup. The beans are pressed down through a thin cover, hot water is added to the phin, and then the water slowly trickles through into the cup. The result is dark and (of sure!) strong brew and most of the people like the coffee with sweetened condensed milk, a practice that probably began because the French couldn’t easily acquire fresh milk.

“Ahh the Italians are so special in the preparation of their espresso – could I do something wrong as well with the Vietnamese coffee?” Yes, you could: Don’t ever try to ask for ”decaf”!! If you prefer your coffee milder, do as the Vietnamese do and order ca phe bac xiu, means coffee with lots of extra condensed milk. 😉
No worries: you’ll be well guided by our waitresses, or your watch MIFUNE’s Vietnamese Coffee video ahead…
