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! Read More

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. Read More

My family and I didn't like it nor did it remind us of a Thai restaurant Thai coffee. Read More

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!;) Read More

If you have an espresso machine make one or two shots of espresso and put it in a Pyrex bowl or measuring cup. Add the sweetened condensed milk to taste (1-4T) and LOTS of ice. Stir until the ice cools the coffee down and pour into a glass. I agree with another reviewer who says that the secret to making this is to have VERY strong coffee or espresso! Read More

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! Read More

This may be closer to the Thai coffee that they serve in restaurants but the Thai coffee I wanted to make is something called Oliang. It's only about 50% coffee that's cut with and roasted with noncoffee substitutes corn soy and sesame. It's supposed to be really really strong so I made a pot of coffee with chicory in it put it back into the coffeemaker with fresh grinds in the basket and added 1/2 teaspoon each of ground corriander and cardamom. I mixed in the condensed milk and poured it over ice and served it cold. It was good and VERY rich (enjoy this slowly--trust me!) but I still like the real stuff I get from my bean shop better. Thanks for the idea though! Read More

This is Americanized. I lived in Thailand for 2 years. This tastes nothing like what they served. Read More

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. Read More
