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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. 5 Star Review I love chocolate

    Truong Lam is one of my favorites. It's part coffee, part dessert. A little goes a long way.

  6. 3 Star Review Tastes like there is unlisted sugar added

    The ingredients list does not mention either (it says four bean varieties, butter, and salt), but one sip should convince anyone that Truong Lam has added cocoa and sugar to the grounds in addition to who knows what else. It tastes good, of course, but the obvious disparity between listed ingredients and apparent ingredients has me very concerned.

  7. 5 Star Review Super deep and dark

    Wow, great stuff here. Rich, smooth, sweet and DARK. I usually drink my coffee black, and I had to scale back the amount of coffee I put into the brewer otherwise it was way too strong. With a bit of cream, it is truly delightful.

  8. 5 Star Review Excellent

    By far my favorite coffee! Chocolatey and full bodied.

  9. 5 Star Review Sweet and dark

    A friend brought back some coffee from a cafe in Vietnam. Even when black, it tasted super sweet and chocolaty, and not at all chemical tasting like when you drink flavored coffees. This is the closest I have found at Len's to match that strange Vietnamese cafe coffee. This is spectacular. And no lies about it being dark, you can add a lot of milk to this and it looks as black as can be. Absolutely delightful.

  10. 5 Star Review Best of the best

    Since finding this coffee, all other vietnamese coffees are ruined for me. It's the best I've ever tasted, and every time I decide to try something else, I realize it's not possible to match Truong Lam. I keep some around at all times and drink it daily.
