Trung Nguyen Creative 4 (Premium Culi) Coffee

Blend of culi (single, unsplit) beans of Arabica, Robusta, Chari and Catimor. Strong, very full-bodied and intense, with layers of complexity. One of the most popular coffees served by our café and coffee shop customers since 2005. 340g (12 oz) ground coffee suitable for Press, drip machine or Phin filter brewing.

Please select 340 gram ground or whole bean (250 gram).

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 coffee 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.

  1. 5 Star Review The best coffee EVER

    I visited Vietnam in 2013 and to this day, it's one of my favorite vacations. The people, the scenery, and most definitely the coffee! I knew i had to bring some home, so i went into a little convenience store and asked the owner what coffee he would recommend. He steered me right, because Trung Nguyen Creative 4 is, to me, the best coffee i've ever had. It is super creamy, a bit chocolatey, there is absolutely no bitter bite at the end.

  2. 5 Star Review LOVE THIS COFFEE!

    I became aware of this coffee when a friend brought some back from Vietnam to give as gifts for his friends. I fell in love with the flavor and aromatics before during and after indulging. My kids and their spouses raved about it also.

  3. 5 Star Review a sweet stimulating brew

    One of my favorites for sure. The beans nave a slight sweetness to them that allows the coffee to be enjoyed without an added sweeter. The caffeine content clears out the cobwebs beginning the start of a good day but not an over caffeinated jittery start. I enjoy it hot and the morning and on occasion cold in the afternoon.

  10. 5 Star Review Really the only coffee you should drink

    Trung Nguyen coffee is a really such a chocolate, rich pleasure every morning. I have to make it myself these days as I've moved back to the states from Singapore where there was a Trung Nguyen Coffee shop that I loved to visit for a fresh cup and a couple bags to take home.
    Order a bag from Len's, you won't be disappointed (get a tin Vietnamese pour over pot too)
