Vietnamese iced coffee is a delightfully sweet coffee treat that can be interpreted in a number of ways, but perhaps one of the best manifestations of this treat is the specialty version offered at the Roll'd Viet takeaway chain.

The Australia-based Vietnamese-inspired chain's masterpiece makes use of a handy blend of Brazilian and Colombian beans with 10% Vietnamese Jade Mountain washed arabica.

The recipe itself is extremely strict, as any lapses in proportion or concentration of ingredients can cause this Vietnamese iced coffee to go from excellent to merely very good. The recipe calls for 50 grams of espresso, 100 grams of ice and 80 grams of evaporated and condensed milk, which clumps on ice nicely.

The resulting beverage is a touch milder than typical Vietnamese iced coffee and has a sweet sting that makes it an absolutely delightful indulgence.
