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.
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.

Best Coffee Ever!
This coffee is strong and rich, but never bitter as some strong coffees are. We drink it for our morning coffee and use it in our Espresso machine for lattes. Love it! It's as good as we had in Vietnam!

My "go to" every morning
I have been drinking this every morning for about two years and I have two double shots every morning and it gets me going. The flavor is just to my taste. I am never happy when traveling and find myself in a hotel where I am presented only "lesser" coffee.
Try it if you have not. You are likely to find it rich and flavorful, I surely do.

I mix it further with the Truong Lam (my favorite, very chocolatey) to make the perfectly balanced espresso.

Wow... Just Wow...
Aside an organic Laotian coffee consumed in the mountains above Luang Prabang this is, so far, the best South East Asian coffee that I've tasted. It is wonderful, has no trace of bitterness and has just the right balance of strength & flavor without having your morning joe send you for a loop. I'll keep exploring with the help of Len's Coffees... thanks!

First time buyer..
I’m not much on conventional coffee, I’m an espresso drinker. But with the 100+ degree days lately I still need my caffeine but hot espresso is out of the question. So, looking online for iced coffee recipes, Vietnamese iced coffee piqued my interest. Not only for the ease of preparation, but the phin brewing straight to cup looks neat. I was recommended this coffee by several recipes. It does NOT disappoint. I WILL be buying more!
