Our most popular coffee in the new Saigon Blend series, this Vietnamese 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! It has become our top-selling Saigon Blend.
Editorial comment: Due to inadequate bank financing support for small businesses, we are always limited in how much Trung Nguyen Culi Robusta Creative 1 we can import. But we have the answer, 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 2:1. Featuring select highland Robustas in perfect balance, it is a SE Asian treasure.
Select 6-packs of 8oz whole bean or drip grind (slightly coarse, ideal for for Phin brewing, French Press, or cone-shape drip machines and pour-overs). Each 6 pack gives you a total of 3 pounds of coffee.
Shipping included anywhere within the USA and US territories (not available in Canada, sorry).
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 highland 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 and highland Vietnamese Robustas with Arabica and natural flavor extracts, similar to the original traditional "secret" recipe of Vietnam.

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.
