Dakman Washed Arabica
$21.00 – $95.00
TASTE Bakers chocolate, torched sugar, vanilla
RECOMMENDED BREW METHOD
Our take on a Vietnamese coffee. This one is 100% Arabica, whereas the grocery store brands are normally Robusta. So this one has an overall smooth character which is still a dark roast. Tasting notes are bakers (dark) chocolate, vanilla and burnt sugar (reminds me of campfire marshmallow) and slightly earthy. This coffee is robust enough to stand up to the addition of condensed milk and either hot or iced drinks in a Vietnamese Coffee.

In the spirit of having Vietnamese coffee on the shelf we put together two delicious recipes we think you’ll love! Vietnamese coffee is highly concentrated coffee combined with condensed milk bringing forth a full bodied, rich, creamy caramel finish. Typically, Vietnamese coffee is brewed with a Vietnamese brewer which not everyone has. Instead we wanted to create a recipe using brewing methods more common. We found the best results came from the Aeropress as well as the French Press.
- 17g of coffee ground medium.
- 130g of boiling water poured steadily over ground coffee.

Iced Vietnamese Coffee
Add ice to any of these recipes for refreshing, delicious results! We elevated the ice coffee experience with this coffee by incorporating a martini shaker. We recommend using the french press recipe for this iced method!
- Once coffee is brewed set it aside.

- Then shake it like you mean it!
