How to Phin Brew Over Ice

Phin filter brewing directly over ice is a popular method started in Vietnam.

By brewing phin coffee over ice, the coffee cools instantly as it drips. 

Worried about dilution? Brewing using the phin filter yields a strong brew, so the end result will be balanced and bold – and chilled! Cold coffee without diluted flavor? Yes please.

    There's no wrong way to enjoy your coffee. Try our recommended guide, or freestyle on the water / coffee ratio until you find your personal preference (AKA the perfect cup).

    Watch how to phin brew over ice in our video tutorial below.
