Breakfast at CC. Ordered a Vietnamese coffee. They gave me a cappuccino with a little sweetened condensed milk added. I told the person behind the counter that it wasn’t like any Vietnamese coffee I had ever had. Vietnamese coffee is usually served iced and is a feast for the senses. It is a ritual, as the coffee is coarsely ground, then individually brewed with a small metal Vietnamese drip filter, into a cup containing condensed milk. The condensed milk and coffee are stirred together and poured over ice. There is a certain scent when drops of coffee hit the condensed milk and of course a big flavor…

I must have looked upset, because the person came by our table and offered to take back the coffee. I gladly exchanged it for a regular cup of joe. What was really funny, was that I was told the owner of the restaurant was proud of his Vietnamese coffee…

Jon suggested a new name: Viet-no-mese Coffee

I spent most of the evening in the laboratory, the result of which you can hear tomorrow…
