Inspired by the lack of fresh milk in the tropics, Vietnamese Iced Coffee was created when the French brought coffee to Vietnam during the colonial era in the late 1900s. Made with ultra thick and creamy condensed milk that can survive tropical heat without refrigeration, Vietnamese iced coffee is typically enjoyed rich and sweet. It has a thick mouthfeel that is the signature difference between it and simply sweetened iced coffee. The French traditionally combined chicory with coffee which gave Vietnamese Iced Coffee an even darker roasted body. Made with Teeccino, you get the best of the French & Vietnamese inspiration without the caffeine and acidity of coffee.


  • Chilled Teeccino French Vanilla (or a certified gluten free Teeccino Dandelion Blend)
  • 3 Tbsp condensed milk or evaporated milk (for a vegan version, use sweetened condensed coconut milk)
  • 4 tbsp milk or half and half (or non-dairy alternative such as almond milk or coconut creamer)

Note: If you plan to use unsweetened evaporated milk, try a non-caloric sweetener like Stevia

Teeccino French Vanilla

We made this recipe with Teeccino French Vanilla, one of our Maya blends with deep coffee notes from roasted chicory roots and ramón seeds from the Maya Biosphere Reserve, softened with creamy vanilla bean. Our Maya blends were created for purists who want a robust, focused body without any sweetness in their coffee or tea.
