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.
We're sorry, we are currently out of Truong Lam and we do not have a date as to when it will return to the website yet.

Thick & chocolatey with a hint of sweetness
It's our favorite Robusta blend. It's thick and chocolatey. There's a hint of sweetness so we're able to have it black without any milk or sugar! It's nice & strong too.

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.

I love this coffee! I’ve been drinking it for many years. Although I’ve tried drinking other coffees nothing compares to this.

Dark, Rich and Full-bodied Coffee
Truong Lam is a strong, densely flavored, complex coffee that ranks among the best of the Vietnamese

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.

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.

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.
