Saigon Amorata Low-Caffeine Coffee

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 chocolatey, with notes of butter and caramel. Excellent persistence of taste and ices beautifully. This is our most popular summer iced Vietnamese coffee... the chocolatey taste and lower caffeine let you enjoy a whole lot of delicious dessert-like coffee refreshment on a hot summer day.

This is also the perfect after-dinner hot 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.

  1. 5 Star Review For people who love coffee...

    ...and want it as something more than a caffeine delivery mechanism. Amorata is delicious (I am drinking it right now!) without getting you all amped up the way stronger brews can.

  3. 5 Star Review Good to the last drop

    We love this blend. My house smells wonderful while brewing. For us we like it best in an automatic drip maker.

  4. 4 Star Review A floral brew ideal for iced coffee

    The Saigon Amorata low-caffeine beans may lack the depth of a butter-roasted dalat peaberry, but this is more than made up by its soft caramel flavor notes, a balanced bitterness, and lovely floral aroma. We love it in the Summer with condensed milk over ice.

  6. 5 Star Review Very Smooth

    I grind at a moka using 4 tablespoons. Using an Aeropress with a Fellows filter 8 ounces of 192 degree water poured and bloomed 1 minute 20 seconds. Stir 8 to 10 times to settle the bloom. Start the press at 2 minutes. Takes 45 seconds more or less. Add 6 ounces of 192 degree water. Very strong but no bite. If you prefer a weaker drink add 2 more ounces of water for a Americano. I take mine with a tablespoon of heavy whipping cream. The taste is fantastic and smashing aroma.
    Have not had the opportunity to do espresso yet but have another bag. Working on a bag of Saigon Espresso 2 via the Aeropress. A bag goes pretty quick 4 tablespoons of beans per cup!

  7. 5 Star Review Shockingly strong vanilla and chocolate, but overroasted

    When I opened the bag, I thought I was smelling a chocolate cake. It's such a sweet, rich smell that I wondered if it had some flavoring added! The caffeine level is very tolerable for me, even when I'm extra sensitive. The roast is a bit too dark in my opinion, the beans are coated with oil. I will still plan on buying this many more times.

  8. 5 Star Review Amazing aroma and taste

    This is one of the best coffees I've ever had. The low caffeine means I can enjoy it even more. The aroma is incredible and the resultant brew is exceptionally smooth. You don't want to miss out on this one.

  9. 5 Star Review Excellent

    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.

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.
