Start by boiling some water. An electric kettle makes it a lot faster.
Preheat the filter and cup by pouring a bit of boiling water through it.
Remove the metal filter and pour in 1 heaping tablespoon of Cafe Du Monde.
Twist the filter on gently until it just starts to stop. Then turn it little more, a bit less than 1/8 a turn.
Pour a tiny bit of water in the filter just to wet the grind and to let the grind expand a bit. This will help rid of some small grinds that happen to make it through the filter. You can toss it out if you see any.
Fill the filter all the way and let it drip. Ideal brewing time comes to about 3 to 5 minutes so adjust the filter accordingly. Too loose and you'll just have runny brown water. Too tight and nothing will drip through. The filter will be hot, so use a fork or another utensil to adjust the filter. Place the cap on and watch the coffee drip!
Add 1-2 teaspoons of condensed milk and slowly add more to taste. Stir to fullly dissolve.
For iced coffee, let it cool off a bit then pour the brew into a glass filled with ice.
