Yes, we dared! After a year of R&D and experimentation we released our own flagship Vietnamese-roast-style coffee! Chocolatey, buttery, smooth, low-in-acid profile with excellent persistence. This is a masterful blend of 4 bean origins at 3 different roast levels with a tiny amount of organic flavor extracts to simulate the civet coffee profile that made Vietnam famous.
Arabicas, signature peaberry Robusta from the Vietnamese highlands, and Vietnamese Excelsa all combine to create this complex and coffee that is wonderfully comforting hot but explodes in flavor when iced. Fabulous as espresso also. We roast this coffee every two weeks... it always sells out! Several USA beer breweries use this coffee in their "Civet coffee beer" because it delivers a taste profile as smooth as Kopi Luwak.
Please note: We have renamed this product from Saigon Legend to Saigon Gold to distinguish it from other products that had names similar to "Legend" and "Legendee". Our original packaging is shown in the supporting image thumbnail to the left.
Available in whole bean and ground. Please select drip grind or bean below. 8 ounce bag, Our artisanal Harlequin Roast with 3 different temperatures and 4 different species of coffee.
Caffeine level: Medium-High (approximately 130 mg per serving)
Great flavor blend!
My fiancé and I absolutely love this coffee! The taste profile is very unique and delicious, sweet almost with hints of hazelnut and butterscotch it seemed like. Will definitely be ordering more soon!

Huge fan of Sang Tao 8 and this comes close
We love starting our day with Sang Tao 8 and were interested in trying this as a alternative. I enjoy it hot as much as I enjoy Sang Tao 8 hot however cold I prefer the Sang Tao 8. However, I am not sure that the difference in taste is so much I won't continue to enjoy the cheaper cost of Saigon Master's Blend.

best coffee for the price
this is the best coffee for the (affordable) price!!! so so delicious and definitely comparable to Trung Nguyen Legendee! We enjoy this one on weekends as a special treat.

This is an amazing cup of coffee very unique and rich flavor, on par with Trung Nguyen Legendee. Will definitely be making another order from Len's!

Such a Unique Blend
I'd like to think that I know my coffee. I was a barista for from age 24-32, working at two "gourmet" coffee houses and gained a lot of knowledge about coffee as well as having tasted dozens of different blends and single beans from around the world.
With that in mind, this is one of the most unique and complex blends I've had the pleasure of tasting and drinking, ever. Top 2 or top 3. What I found myself doing was battling my desire to say something bad about it. I just couldn't. What was specific about this blend was how many fruity overtones and even a vanilla undertone it possessed. I've never had anything quite like it. And with whipped cream (con panna), it finished it off and brought it to another level. I'm highly impressed by this roast. Really, really, really well done folks. Well done. I'll be buying more.

A very nice, smooth coffee. If you love the absolutely superb Trung Nguyen Creative Three (Arabica Se), you'll enjoy this coffee too. This is my other favorite coffee.
