Finally! A true traditional Vietnamese-style blend with signature Peaberry Robusta and premium award-winning Arabica and Catimor beans. That chocolatey flavor you love is here in a coffee we created ourselves. All natural, vegan, premium coffee with an amazingly smooth, chocolatey, buttery profile hot or iced.
This is our first blend in our new line of Trung-Nguyen-inspired coffees that adhere to the original taste and quality of the Vietnamese coffee style that is taking the world by storm. We love having control over the grind... our customers enjoy brewing with the Phin, French Press and drip machines, and most Vietnamese coffees do not do equally well in all three. Our "perfect grind" will deliver an optimal 4-5 minute brewing time in the Phin and works well with press or drip machines (coarse drip is the setting). Or choose whole bean to adjust for the grind you want. Our dry process will not clog your grinder or grind-and-brew machine like the Trung Nguyen whole beans tend to do.
We can't stop drinking this coffee ourselves. We know that everybody will love it!
8 oz bag, choose coarse drip or whole bean.
Notes: Chocolate, butter, apricot, brown sugar. Relatively high in caffeine. If you like Creative 4 or Gourmet Blend you should enjoy this coffee.
This is a coffee that is relatively high in caffeine due to the peaberry Robusta. It is about 150 mg per serving, about the same level as Creative 4 or Gourmet Blend.
Contains Arabica, Robusta, and Catimor beans, with natural flavor extracts, similar to the original traditional "secret" recipe of Vietnam.
After trying all of the TN beans, we have settled on "Creative 4" as our favorite and have been ordering after my trips to Viet Nam in June 2001 as soonas Len began importing. When he was out recently of those beans we ordered these instead at his suggestion. They are quite good and an excellent substitute when necessary.

Great Way To Greet The Morning
I drink this black and find it full bodied but smooth and not bitter. Very enjoyable.

This creation is a success.
This coffee has the flavor of Viet Nam - they did a beautiful job of creating it.

This coffee blend is aromatic and tasty. Not too strong but full bodied. It definitely has a taste that I can't put my finger on. But is definitely not rum of the mill coffee. Try it you might love it

Better then advertised
This exceeds billing will be buying again.

Like the headline implies, they nailed it with this blend. The flavor is just about perfect, especially mixed with condensed milk. It doesn't have the rum-ish flavor that most of the Trung Nguyen coffee's have.
If it only had the butter roast aroma, I'd never drink another type of coffee again.

Congratulations to Len!
I love the new Saigon Cafe Blend. It is every bit as good as the Trung Nguyen varieties. I will definitely be ordering more of this as soon as I am about to run out of it.

After settling on Truong Lam Home Blend, this is the first coffee that is as satisfying yet not overwhelming. Just perfectly enjoyable.

Len nailed it!
Len said he was trying to get a Creative 4/Gourmet Blend and he succeeded.

Excellent Vietnamese style blend!
This is a superb Vietnamese style blend and I will most certainly order more. I still love all the Trung Nguyen varieties, but Saigon Cafe blend is excellent.
I would say that it is a cleaner, brighter tasting coffee overall than most of the Trung Nguyen blends, but still with that rich, chocolaty, buttery consistency. I find that it works wonderfully for hot as well as iced coffees, whereas some Trung Nguyen blends are best served iced in my opinion.
