Gourmet Blend from Trung Nguyen
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.
Box of two 250-gram bags inside, 500 grams (1.17 lb) coffee total. Ground only, no whole bean.
Sorry, we are temporarily out of the Gourmet Blend. We expect to have more before the end of the year.
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.
Best Coffee Ever
Excellent full body taste, without bitterness. Slight hint of chocolate. Loved it in Vietnam in 2008. Pleasantly surprised when we found out we could order it online. Have been ordering it for many years.

It is a very rich coffee with a bit of chocolate aftertaste. Excellent.

Our favorite coffee
We fell in love with this coffee on our trip to Vietnam and after the stash we brought home ran out I was thrilled to find that Len imports it. I've been ordering from him for over 10 years.

Bold, yet smooth blend
I have been using this coffee exclusively since traveling to Vietnam in 2013. The coffee is bold, smooth, and delicious.

Bold yet smooth
I first tried this coffee when I was visiting Danang a year ago. I drink my coffee black. No cream and no sugar. This coffee is very flavorful but not bitter. It is one of my favorites.

Hands Down, THE BEST flavor coffee!
Without a doubt this is the best coffee there is. The taste, rich and dark roasted flavor. Never a burnt aftertaste or weak taste!

Living in a rural area with no coffee shops, being able to make delicious satisfying coffee at home is essential. This coffee blend is magnificent: generous mouth feel, rich chocolate notes, rounded full flavor. Recommend you give it a try.

The Araku Valley of India
India's coffee tradition goes back 400 years or more, when a variety called Kent was first established in the Southern Hills. Arabicas predominated until the blight of 1870, when growers needed to hybridize to resistant varieties. The resultant strains had genes from Liberica and other unique, resistant species.
