Our second in the new Saigon Blend series, this Culi (peaberry) Robusta Blend is sure to please anybody with a "back" palate who loves deep, dark, delicious coffee with high body and persistence. 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. High in caffeine. Great hot or iced; excellent choice for making cold brew.
We can't stop drinking this coffee ourselves. We know that everybody will love it!
Editorial comment: Due to the catastrophic state of international shipping at this time, we can no longer import Trung Nguyen Culi Robusta Creative 1. Hopefully we can bring more in for the Fall. But we have the answer in the meantime, our Saigon Tradition is all that and more! In blind taste tests, people prefer Saigon Tradition to Trung Nguyen Creative 1 at a rate of 3:2. Featuring select highland Robustas in perfect balance, it is a SE Asian treasure.
Select 8oz whole bean or drip grind (slightly coarse, ideal for for Phin brewing, French Press, or cone-shape drip machines and pour-overs).
Notes: Chocolate, butter, apricot, brown sugar. High in caffeine.
This is our second 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).
High in caffeine due to the peaberry Robusta. It is about 180 mg per serving, about the same level as Creative 1 (an "average" cup of coffee contains about 90-100 mg, for comparison).
Contains peaberry Robusta with Arabica and natural flavor extracts, similar to the original traditional "secret" recipe of Vietnam.

I enjoy a smooth, bold cup of coffee and the Saigon Tradition is just that! No acidic aftertaste. Very enjoyable coffee.

This coffee has wonderful aroma and a rich taste profile. It also is not as acidic as so much of the coffee on the market. We drink coffee black,

Nice Chocolatey background, but less artificial tasting flavor than some coffees. Better grind for pour through than some other brands. Really good.

The best coffee!
I started ordering from Len's because I wanted a robusta bean. Didn't expect to get such a delicious coffee!! I get all my coffee from Len's now. Never disappointed. They taste freshly roasted and consistently delicious. Also speedy delivery!

This is far and away my favorite coffee. Mixed with condensed milk, it is just like what you'd get in Saigon.

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.
