The word “Phin” is derived from the French word “filtre”. The brewer is somewhere between a French press and a drip coffee maker, and uses percolation, not pressure as a mode of converting water and beans into coffee. The most common coffee maker in Vietnam, perfect for brewing a single cup of intense deliciousness in a traditional Vietnamese way.
