Vietnamese Iced coffee - technique, equipment, ingredients

I am on a quest to make "perfect" Vietnamese Iced Coffee at home... so my questions for those who have achieved this goal:

which brand of coffee? Cafe BeauMmonde? Mr. Phong's private reserve? another brand I need to find??
sweetened condensed milk - borden? some other brand I should use that's better?

Equipment - Phin range in price from 2.50 to $6 or $7...
when I search on amazon, they all look like they have the same picture... is there anything in particular I should look for to get the 'right' one??

Technique coffee in the phin, hot water over the coffee... allow to drain...what more do I need to know? how much coffee to water?
how hot should the water be?

Thanks all in advance for sharing your wisdom!
