Just like any other locale—be it a city or a country—Singapore has its own take on iced coffee and tea. You'd typically find coffeeshops serving Kopi poured over regular ice, affectionately known as "Kopi Peng." But hey, this is Fat Dough, where we like to shake things up a bit—or, at the very least, enhance the classics.
Sabana's Signature Blend...
Now, here's my twist: I opt for coffee ice cubes in my Kopi Peng to avoid the watery disappointment that regular ice cubes often bring. If you're cool with regular ice, that's totally fine, no judgment here!
Additionally, instead of the traditional method of blending brewed coffee with condensed milk, I save that luscious condensed milk for the grand finale. Intrigued? Don't worry, I'll spill the beans—no pun intended—on this nifty trick in the directions below. So, let's not keep you in suspense any longer; shall we dive into the recipe?
Freshly Brewed Coffee, 1 Serving
Singapore Blend Ground Coffee Preferably Sabana, 20g
Boiling Water, 200g + More
Condensed Milk, 2 TBSP Adjust To Preference
Cloth Drip Pot / V60
Ice Cube Tray
Fill ice cube tray with the freshly brewed coffee.
Freeze overnight to make coffee ice cubes.
I am using my drip pot to make this coffee. You can also use V60.
"Wash" the drip cloth with boiling water and discard the water.
Add the coffee to the drip cloth.
Bloom the coffee with 40g of boiling water.
Sit for 30 seconds.
After 30 seconds, pour the remaining 160g of boiling water.
Move the drip cloth in an up-and-down motion, they called this "pulling".
Once the coffee has completely dripped, pour over into the sauce pot in a pulling motion as well.
Repeat the step back to the drip pot.
Pour the brewed coffee to a cup and chill in the fridge for at least 2 hrs.
Place the coffee ice cubes to a serving glass.
Pour over the chilled coffee.
In a cup, add condensed milk and just enuff hot water to dissolve the condensed milk.
Stir to combine well or until the condensed milk has fully dissolved to a syrupy consistency.
Pour that condensed milk mixture over the coffee.
