Saigon Espresso #2

When we became the authorized distributors of Trung Nguyen coffees in 2005, one of our favorite blends was the Espresso #2 whole bean blend. It was drier than the Creative coffees and  ground well and extracted beautifully, with high levels of crema and body. The persistence and broad palate appeal comes from the blend of three beans - Arabica, Robusta and Catimor. The Espressos  #1 and #2 were discontinued by Trung Nguyen in 2009 and we have pined for them for years... but we pine no more!

We love the gentle citrus note and bright tones of the Catimor in this blend, and the Catimor also contributes to the crema... with both Robusta and Catimor in this blend, the crema is high and fresh and full of complex and delightful notes. The overall chocolatey tone brings warmth to this sharp and pleasing combination.

This espresso has a very bold profile black, but plays well with cream and sugar for a sweet, balanced treat.

8 ounce available in whole bean or espresso ground. Please select.

  1. 5 Star Review Great Espresso

    This is a great espresso! Very unique and distinctly different from Italian espressos but very tasty. Kudos to Len and the team for their master blending skills!
