Still their top-seller worldwide, Trung Nguyen's famous Gourmet Blend of all four bean varieties, in two 250-gram foil bags within decorative boxes (500 gram total, 1.2 pounds). This is the traditional House Blend coffee served at over 1000 Trung Nguyen coffeehouses throughout Southeast Asia.
Pack of 3 boxes, 500g per box (divided into two 250g sealed bags for freshness). Total 1.5 kilos, about 3.3 lbs.
Gourmet Blend is balanced for brewing in the traditional Phin filter, with added sweetened condensed milk. There is a little sour/bitter effect in the coffee profile to complement the sweetness of the milk. Gourmet Blend will also brew well in American drip machines and the French Press, just use a little less coffee to compensate for the denser, richer profile.
The Gourmet Blend "fired the shot that was heard around the world" in the Vietnamese Coffee revolution (or evolution, as we like to say). It showed the world what a multi-species coffee blend (Arabica, Robusta, Excelsa, Catimor) could taste like. Americans think only Arabica coffee is good, which is simply wrong. Trung Nguyen coffees are low in acid and smoother than American coffees, with back palate persistence and a much wider taste profile and great "mouthfeel".
Please note that this product is shipped to over 30 countries worldwide, so the packaging we are able to source often changes, but the product does not.
Allergy note: The special butter-roast process that gives Trung Nguyen coffees their unique flavor and aroma is a proprietary recipe and we cannot promise that it is safe for individuals with severe allergies to any vegetable oil, such as soy.
We also can't promise it's vegan, but it is certified Halal and safe for lacto-vegetarians.
If you are vegan or if you have any concerns about allergens, we suggest our new Saigon Cafe Blend, which we can promise are free of common allergens and 100% vegan.
