Marbled Iced Coffee

On Saturday, we like to break from the weekday breakfast routine and enjoy a more relaxed meal. Often, that can just mean eggs and bacon or homemade bagels–anything that feels just a bit more luxurious. And to me, few things feel as luxurious in the morning as a good cup of coffee. Today I’m sharing one of my favorite summer coffees, which is as pretty as it is tasty. Vietnamese(ish) style iced coffee:

IMG_2662I keep thinking this coffee would be such a fun way to jazz up a brunch party, with everyone’s cup brewed individually at the table. I love how dramatic it looks, and really it couldn’t be simpler to make. The only special tool you really need is a Vietnamese-style coffee filter–a pretty cheap investment. (There’s more to brewing a proper cup of Vietnamese-style coffee, but I’m not about that today.)

Vietnamese(ish) Marbled Iced Coffee

  • Servings: 1
  • Print


  • 8oz milk, etc. (I used cashew milk)
  • 1/4 cup French grind coffee
  • sweetener, to taste
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • ice


  1. Pour your milk into a cup that leaves room for the coffee and ice
  2. Remove the damper from the coffee filter, add coffee grounds, replace damper
  3. Place filter over glass, fill filter to the brim with boiling water.
  4. Replace filter lid and wait for the coffee to drip through–about 10 minutes. This is when that pretty marbled pattern developes
  5. After all the water has filtered through, remove filter, add sweetener and ice, stir and enjoy!
