Thai coffee can be found in Asian food markets under the label "oliang powder mixed". Add the milk to the brewed coffee slowly, allowing it to cascade through the ice.


  • 4 cups water
  • 1/4 cup Thai ground coffee
  • For the Sugar Syrup:
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup sugar

  • Shaved ice or ice cubes
  • 1 cup evaporated milk


Bring the water to a boil in a saucepan. Stir in the coffee and return to a boil. Let cool. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a pitcher.


Bring the water and sugar to a boil in a saucepan, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Boil until syrupy, about 5 minutes. Let cool.


Fill 6 glasses with ice. Pour some coffee into each glass. Serve with the milk and sugar syrup to taste.
