White Gourmet Coffee

This is coffee with condensed milk.
The whole secret lies in the consistency of the ingredients: it’s not the milk that is added to the ready-made drink, but the coffee is added to the condensed milk. It is important not to stir the contents of the bowl until it is completely filled with a fragrant drink.
The sequence of preparation is as follows:
1. put 2-3 spoons of condensed milk on the bottom of the glass cup;
2. Place a filter on the top of the bowl and brew the coffee – Vietnamese style;
3. When the coffee has completely passed through the filter - release the top of the cup. The resulting drink retains a clear line of delineation between the white milk bottom and the dark coffee top;
4. Gently mix the contents of the bowl.
5. At the last stage of preparing, you can add ice to the drink, which will allow you to enjoy completely new flavors.
