A few months ago I visited Pocellino's Craft Butcher in Memphis, TN and it has become a favorite of mine. On my first trip I discovered the "Café Shepherd". It is basically a Vietnamese style chicory coffee with sweetened condensed milk.
Since we live in Georgia, and my favorite coffee isn't easy to come by, I decided to make my own version. The only problem was finding chicory coffee. But after some research, and a quick purchase off Amazon, a box of Community Coffee New Orleans Blend with Chicory arrived at my door.
4 cups water
1/2 cup ground coffee
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 T. vanilla
ice cubes, as needed
- Brew coffee with water using your preferred technique. Pour coffee into pitcher. Stirring, add in the milk and vanilla. Serve hot or chilled with ice cubes.
