Trung Nguyen Gourmet Blend
The recent packaging update has given this coffee a new name, the Gourmet Blend. The coffee itself is exactly the same, so don't worry, House Blend fans! The new box is very attractive and we are pleased to offer the same delicious coffee in its new packaging.
The trademark Trung Nguyen Gourmet Blend in the decorative box is an inexpensive introduction to the world of TN blended coffees. It is often the first TN coffee that people try, since it is the House Blend for the TN coffeeshops throughout Vietnam, and the most common coffee exported by TN.
It is a careful blend of 4 varieties (Arabica, Robusta, Chari aka Excelsa, and Catimor) that are grown under Trung Nguyen direction in ideal environments across the Buon Me Thuot Highlands. The blend is incredibly fragrant and it fills the room with scents of spice, chocolates and fruit, and it's a great coffee that should be brewed at 1 tablespoon per cup to preserve its fine balance.
Makes an incredible cup of coffee in the single-cup Vietnamese filters, but we have also had great success with any drip coffeemaker that takes a medium or coarse grind, percolators and office-style coffee machines (Bunn, etc.) Just be sure to use about 20% less than you would with most other coffees.
Inside the box are mylar bags with CO2 vents for freshness (one bag in the 250 gram (~ 8.8 oz.) and 2 bags in the 500 gram (~1.1 lb.)).
