Blend of rich, sharp Robusta and milder fragrant Arabica; one of our most popular and well-rounded coffees. Good hot or iced, black or with cream and sugar.
The Trung Nguyen Creative Two (Robusta Arabica) is definitely the hands-down most accessible and popular coffee served in our taste testings and Market booths. It's a wonderful blend of high-quality Arabica and heirloom Robusta. It is an "anytime" coffee, with medium caffeine, well-balanced blended taste, and as good iced as it is hot. We suspect that at one time, a blend like this was the standard approach to fine coffee served around the world, before the days of modern hybrids and confined one-species tastes.
12 oz bags (340 grams) for ground coffee, 8.8 oz bags (250 gram) for whole bean.
If you have never tried Vietnamese coffee, here is a perfect first candidate. In over 20,000 taste tests we can count on the fingers of one hand the number of people who were not enthusiastic about this coffee.
This coffee is best brewed at 1.5 tablespoons per cup, in a cone-shaped drip machine, French Press, percolator or any soak method. For some reason the coffee is not as successful in commercial machines as some of the other Trung Nguyen coffees, so we don't recommend it as a coffeehouse coffee, despite its immense popularity in home brewing. The whole bean is exceptionally flavorful, and could be experimented with if you want to use the #2 as a base for coffee specialty drinks and a house coffee.
If you are introducing a friend to Vietnamese coffee and you don't know their tastes, you can't go wrong with this balanced and delicious popular favorite coffee with a budget price. It remains our most successful coffee for inclusion in gift packages and Mini-Kits.
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.

My only coffee!
A friend brought a pack of Trung Nguyen Creative 2 Robusta Arabica back from her trip to Vietnam as a gift and I fell in love with its smooth but intense taste. with a hint of mocha and cinimon type spices. I was so lucky to find it at Len's Coffee. I cannot recommend it enough. It is now almost the only coffee I buy and drink.

Amazing Aroma, greatest taste
I bought one 8 oz bag and it did not take long for me to finish it. I love the aroma and great taste. I'll make sure I have enough available all the time.

This is by far some of the best coffee I have tasted. Smooth and not too acidic.

Dark and Rich
The coffee is a little too sweet for me by itself. I have been mixing the beans with other coffee and actually like it quite well. The hint of chocolate is yummy. I do have to wipe the beans since they are oily and that's not good for my grinder.

This comes very close to the coffee I experienced while in Vietnam. It is delicious with the hint of chocolate to the flavor.

Love this Coffee
Vietnamese coffee is all I drink. This particular type is very good. So far I have enjoyed all the flavors I've bought from Len's Coffee.
