Truong Lam Home Blend

This is a quintessential Vietnamese house blend like a visitor might find at a sidewalk café in any Vietnamese town. It's a blend of multiple coffee species, like most of the best Vietnamese coffees, containing Buon Me Thuot Highlands Arabica, Robusta, (on the label it says 'Cherry' but this is a transliteration of Chari, which is their word for Excelsa), with the delightful addition of Moka, a variety of Arabica with petite beans and a naturally chocolatey taste. The roast is a deep butter-roast, and the flavor is quite sweet, dark, and very full, with a pleasant bitter edge. It's especially good iced with milk and sugar in traditional Vietnamese iced coffee style.

As with all traditional Vietnamese "butter roast" coffees, some natural extracts, butter oil and a touch of salt and sugar are most likely used in its preparation. Generally "butter roast" does not necessarily mean butter, it is sometimes a vegetable oil for stability. So we cannot vouch for whether this product is Vegan or not. For guaranteed Vegan products, you may want to try our Saigon Blends line, which we create ourselves and know is 100% Vegan.

500 gram (1.17 lb) bag, ground for Phin filter, French Press, cone-shaped drip machine and pour-over.

  2. 4 Star Review Great for Blending

    Truong Lam remains one of the staples in our coffee cupboard. We find it too rich to drink on it’s own but blended with any of the Trung Nguyen coffees, about 1/3 Truong Lam : 2/3 Trung Nguyen it makes a superb beverage.

  7. 5 Star Review Just like Vietnam

    We had this amazing chocolatey smooth coffee at a small roadside cafe in rural Vietnam, and we bought everything they had. Back in the U.S., we spent a long time chasing a coffee like it. This is it: beautiful, cocoa like, smooth. There is nothing else like it.

  8. 5 Star Review Singaporean kopi at home

    I was looking for a butter roasted robusta coffee that, along with some condensed milk, might come close to the kopi we enjoyed in Singapore. This is it. The phrase "deep, dark, and delicious" was never more apt. Chocolaty.

  9. 5 Star Review Amazing coffee

    This is the best coffee I have ever had! I've search so long to find vietnamese coffee like I had in Saigon and Truong Lam is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you for supplying it!

  10. 5 Star Review Excellent

    Since we were in Cambodia and tried Vietnam coffee with chocolate taste, we were searching for this coffee everywhere and couldn't find it. And after reading reviews, I gave a chance to Truong Lam Home Blend. It's awesome. It reminds me of the chocolatey coffee that I tried in Cambodia. It has NO added sugar, it's a "secret" recipe of Vietnam.

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.
