Legendee Gold is a coffee created in the style of the classic Legendee, but with a new approach to taste and balance. Characteristics of this new coffee include an incredible natural sweetness --many customers who regularly sweeten their coffee like this coffee unsweetened-- and an acidity and aroma more typical of fine Arabicas than the original Legendee blend.
The Legendee family is one of the world's most famous branded coffees, and we are the only authorized distributor in the USA. Recently the Legendee brand has gone "retro" to its original name, "Sang Tao 8", or Creative 8. It is the flagship coffee of the original Creative Coffee series that made Trung Ngyen famous. Legendee is sometimes referred to as "weasel" coffee in Vietnam.
Each bag of Legendee is shipped with a full-color card detailing the history and celebrity of this famous coffee.
Classic Whole Bean Legendee
This blend features a higher percentage of peaberries and Robusta, with
correspondingly darker flavor that ices exceptionally well. Many of you
may remember the original Legendee fondly, and after fearing the coffee
would never be made again, we're delighted to have secured this supply

Naturally low-caffeine selection of Arabica and Chari. Better than decaf! Comparable to black tea in caffeine content (about 1/3 the caffeine of regular coffee). Smooth, rich, low in acid but still brightly flavorful, Passiona is a favorite with our taste-testers and local customers. This is possibly the only genuinely natural (no decaffeination process) low-caffeine coffee in the world today, and it helps you reduce caffeine while enjoying a truly gourmet taste.
Buon Me Thuot Special
Considered a "Home Blend" in Vietnam, this special blend is a slightly milder version of the Gourmet Blend and is sold through grocery stores there. Originally we introduced a limited supply of this coffee, which is usually not available for export, to supermarkets here in the USA, and it built up a big following. Since that time we have been deluged by requests for the coffee, so we are now keeping it in-stock permanently.
The Buon Me Thuot Special is a blend of Arabica, Robusta, Chari (Excelsa) and Catimor beans. In traditional Vietnamese roasting and flavor balancing style, Trung Nguyen created a trademark "every occasion" coffee with a rich, broad flavor and buttery mouthfeel, with excellent aftertaste and keeping qualities. This is a highly affordable coffee with great heritage, sophisticated balance and many hints of chocolate, fruit and nut. The 500 gram bag is more than a pound of coffee, about 17.6 ounces.

The Premium Blend in the can is a popular home-brew Vietnamese traditional coffee, made using Arabica, Robusta, Excelsa & Catimor beans. Trung Nguyen adds natural flavorings to this blend; it is the only Creative Coffee that has an additional ingredients other than a small amount of oil traditionally used in the roasting process. It's a great coffee in perfect balance, and the flavors added (cocoa being one) are not detectable as added flavors; they seem to be very subtle.
We're sorry, but we cannot ship Premium Blend to military or non-continental addresses. Shipping Premium Blend is, in general, much more expensive than shipping a bagged coffee, due to the shape of the can.

Single-Cup Coffee Brewer
Authentic Vietnamese café style
Although Trung Nguyen coffees brew well in regular drip coffeemakers and French presses, we also offer the Vietnamese-style Phin filter for those wishing to re-create an authentic café experience. Coffee is made one cup at a time in these single-serving brewers, usually over sweetened condensed milk, and results in an intense cup of strong, rich coffee.
