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. Ground coffee only, this product is not available in whole bean.
Over the last 15 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.
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.
Takes too long to brew
Hiya, this takes so long to get through my pour through paper filter cone that it is cold by the time it's done. However, a good flavor as a dessert coffee, chocolatey with a bit if cherry? Almond? background?

Absolutly love this coffee. Anything else is just a cup of disappointment.

Unexpectedly good coffee. From an unusual source (Vietnam). Will buy again.

Excellent coffee from an unexpected source - central highlands in Vietnam.

Better than gourmet
I ordered both the gourmet blend and the special, and in my honest opinion, the Special blows the gourmet out of the water! It's super rich, chocolatey, hints of cherry, very creamy. So good

Best Vietnamese Coffee
Hands down this is the best "flavor" choice of Vietnamese coffee. I've tried most of the products that Lens Coffee has to offer and I always go back to this one.

My Go To Choice
I have been enjoying this coffee since 2017 after first tasting it in Vietnam. It's full bodied but smooth. A really satisfying cup of coffee. I always want another cup.

This is my go-to coffee every morning. Smooth and rich, buttery, great coffee for the morning.

Only Coffee you will ever need
I have been Trung Nguyen since I was in Vietnam in 2015. Honestly I like this coffee even better than the creatives 1-5. For the price you can’t beat it - and the flavor is awesome. Everyone I have ever let try it agrees it is a great coffee. Many have continued to buy it and I am not surprised.

Great for Shakes
The wife adds a little of this to her morning protein shake. And, she is not a coffee drinker. She loves the taste.

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.
