As far as the VM coffee brewer, mine came in and I have not been able to get satisfactory results as of yet.

I've been tinkering with the grind and find the main problem is that by the time the brew is finished, the cup is lukewarm and this might be due to the long drip time or the cold condensed milk.

Not being difficult, but I don't like iced coffee.

No big deal, the brewer was under 10 bucks.

My advice is then to use something like this.

add grinds and hot water...let it sit for a min or two and then place it on top of your coffee mug. It won't be as strong but you can tinker with that part, at least your coffee will be hot.

There are very few people in Viet Nam who complain that the coffee or the climate isn't hot enough. I have my doubts slow drip/condensed milk coffee was ever intended to be served piping hot - just thinking out loud here. I do know that, after a year in country, when the temp dips below 75* you go looking for a lined parka or you start shivering.

To Americanize, consider using a very thick mug, preheated with boiling water. Create a terry-towel "cozy" wrap for the Viet filter and mug during drippage. That'll hot things up. Or put the mug in the microwave for 20-seconds after the brew is done.
