ground coffee beans
sweetened condensed milk
I have to disagree with the last reviewer - this is almost EXACTLY like the Thai coffee that is served in our local restaurants, backed up by my sister-in-law who is Cambodian and made this for us (except we have ours on ice). The only tweak that is needed, I think, to make it more authentic is to probably double the amount of coffee - the coffee should be VERY strong to handle the addition of the milk (and ice, if it's served cold). Thanks, Talia!
I am of Thai decent. This was a good attempt. Unfortunately, most Thai places are "Americanized" but you can buy real Thai Coffee in Asian supermarkets or online. You will taste the difference right away.
My family and I didn't like it nor did it remind us of a Thai restaurant Thai coffee.
Well, maybe the recipe name should be changed to "Ameri-Thai Coffee", but in its own right it is a very tasty, homemade gourmet coffee recipe. It is especially nice that it can be made without an espressor machine. Take this from a woman who used to be a Starbuck's barista! ;)
I was looking up ways to use up sweetened condensed milk; I had been meaning to try this recipe because I like cardamom. I think I'd like this better served on ice because it is so sweet. I'll make it again but will use less of the milk next time for drinking hot.
Nice way to round off your homemade Thai meal! This reminds me a bit of the Malaysian style of adding evaporated milk or condensed milk to coffee (my mother's country), although she says you can't replicate the aunthentic coffee shop style she grew up with of course. I follwed this recipe for single serving and used 2 Tablespoons Illy decaf ground espresso in a one cup melitta filter, with 1/8 of the cardamom. So I agree with the reviewer who said make the coffee very strong so it can handle the condensed milk which is great. The cardamom not too overpowering. I drank it hot but I'm sure it would be great on ice too. Thank you!
I have never tasted Thai Coffee so I cannot speak for its authenticity, but this recipe is delicious!
This is Americanized. I lived in Thailand for 2 years. This tastes nothing like what they served.
