More Information

This coffee is a gourmet's dream blend. Trung Nguyen puts together carefully selected Culi (unsplit "peaberries") from 4 different varieties. A lot of care and balancing goes into this coffee, and Trung Nguyen is rewarded by many loyal Vietnamese drinkers who proclaim this their favorite brew.

There are a lot of complex flavors in this coffee, and it also runs a little to the bitter and acid tastes, which is a plus for people who want a full-bodied coffee experience. If you like strong coffee, double up on this one and go for the gusto! In winter this is a comfort coffee, with its rich, appetite-awakening flavor and aroma.

Many restaurants and coffeeshops serve this coffee as their one, representative "Vietnamese coffee" in the Phin single-serving filter. Sometimes fans of this coffee will double it up in the small filter and drink it espresso-strength.

Culi-based coffees have an edge to them that is lost if stored in the fridge as iced coffee concentrate. Drink it fresh... and brew it right onto ice if you can. It's a sipping coffee when made strong, delightful in every taste.

At one level tablespoon per cup you get a mild but broad taste. At 1.5 or 2 tablespoons you get that intense flavor it is famous for.

As with most Vietnamese coffees, if you can control the temperature you can get different effects. At 185° brewing you accent all the extra flavor tones and the chocolate/vanilla hints. At 205° you lose those flavor tones and get a more American-style coffee.

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.

Limit 4 per order, please!

  1. 3 Star Review too mild!

    While this is finely ground coffee that works well in a coffee-maker, it is too mild for our taste. We prefer dark roast Vietnamese coffees.

  2. 5 Star Review Best bang for the buck.

    All the Trung Nguyen coffees are good but this is a really good blend to start out with. Very smooth with a hint of chocolate. Grind is just right to work with most coffee makers.

  5. 5 Star Review My favorite coffee

    Every year the hospital that I worked for held a raffle to raise funds for those struggling to meet their medical costs. Our very international House Staff put together a basket of international coffees. I won this amazing prize and of all the coffees THIS was my favorite. I’ve been ordering it ever since, and I especially like the subtle chocolaty undertones.

  6. 5 Star Review Think dark and rich!

    I like all Trung Nguyen coffees and each one has its own profile. Everyday would be Type S for the most bang for the buck. For special occasions the #4 can offer a lot of flavor.

  9. 5 Star Review Always in My Order

    Simply one of the best. I always include a couple of bags when ordering. Suggest using cone filters as others drain really slow.

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.
