At last! When Trung Nguyen discontinued the Passiona, many hearts were broken, as this was a much-beloved coffee. We created a Vietnamese bean blend that was also low in caffeine and had chocolate tones, but it wasn't the same... until now. Amorata is reborn in Vietnamese butter-roast style, produced by us here in the USA and nobody can take it away! :-)
A blend of Arabicas and Excelsa, low in acid and with approximately 40 mg of caffeine per serving, as compared to an average of 100 mg per cup. Smooth and chocolately, with notes of butter and caramel. Excellent persistence of taste and ices beautifully.
This is the perfect after-dinner coffee for people who are sensitive to caffeine... but it is NOT a decaf, so if you are VERY sensitive to caffeine, this is not a good choice. But for people who want to drink a lot of excellent coffee and not load up on caffeine, this is The One.
Please choose drip grind or whole bean. 8 ounce bags, dark roast profile.
NOTE: Due to overwhelming demand for this item, we may be running 2-3 days late in shipping it. All orders will ship by Thursday, however.
The discontinued Passiona was the only coffee I enjoyed drinking since I like a smooth, non-bitter, taste with very low caffeine. Plus, the flavor was excellent. Over the past several years, I tried and tried different brands of (mostly decaf) coffees but was never pleased. This new Saigon Amorata is so close to the original Passiona that I have given it 5 stars. It's not an exact 100% match, but it sure is very close. So I am back to enjoying coffee again. One note: Even though they should be the same, I do like the drip grind better than the whole bean version.
