A blend of Arabica, Robusta, Chari (Excelsa) and Catimor beans, in line with Gourmet Blend. In traditional Vietnamese roasting and flavor balancing style, Trung Nguyen created a trademark "every occasion" coffee with a rich, broad flavor and buttery mouthfeel, with excellent aftertaste and keeping qualities. This is a highly affordable coffee with great heritage, sophisticated balance and many hints of chocolate, fruit and nut. The 500 gram bag is more than a pound of coffee, about 17.6 ounces.
Over the last 11 years that we have been selling Trung Nguyen coffee, we have seen the S Blend climb to the top-selling spot in the lineup of Vietnamese coffees! You can't beat the price and value combination. We have had to increase the price $.50 recently due to rising prices from Trung Nguyen, but that is the only increase since 2012.
Want to try a quintessentially Vietnamese coffee with the traditional "butter roast", but not sure which coffee to try first? Start with the Buon Me Thuot Special!
Allergy note: The special butter-roast process that gives Trung Nguyen coffees their unique flavor and aroma is a proprietary recipe and we cannot promise that it is safe for individuals with severe allergies to any vegetable oil, such as soy.
We also can't promise it's vegan, but it is certified Halal and safe for lacto-vegetarians.
If you are vegan or if you have any concerns about allergens, we suggest our new Saigon Cafe Blend, which we can promise are free of common allergens and 100% vegan.

True VN coffee
My American family lived in VN from 1959 to 1969. I gave a bag of this coffee to my mother and it nearly made her cry with memories. It is that good.

Got this as a gift earlier this year, now can't imagine my morning coffee without it. Flavorful without the strong acidity and doesn't upset my stomach like some other blends out there.

I have been drinking this blend for several years. I have yet to find anyone that I serve it to say a negative thing about it. It's good hot and makes a really good iced coffee.

Smooth and delicious. Full flavor with a hint of cocoa that is Trung Nguyen Buon Me Thout S coffee balanced and rich. Great value as well! Very pleased with this blend.

Our first encounter with this coffee was in Hoi An Vietnam last December (2016). The flavor, aroma and texture of this coffee was superior to any coffee we had tasted. We purchased a couple of bags to bring home with us. We were pleased to learn of Len’s Coffee as a domestic source for this product. We have introduced a few friends to this product and they, like us, are devotees of Trung Nguyen Buon Me Thout S coffee.

We first had this coffee on a trip to Vietnam, and we brought several bags of it back with us. We were dreading the day when we ran out, and then we found this site. Saved! This coffee is just perfect - never bitter no matter how strong we make it, and it's as good iced as hot.
