Trung Nguyen Coffee Shop
Welcome to the Trung Nguyen Coffee Shop!
Trung Nguyen is the best-selling brand of coffee in Vietnam, with 800 coffeeshops throughout Southeast Asia. Travellers returning from Vietnam often remember their Trung Nguyen cafe experience and long to recreate it.
Their coffees include the Creative Coffees line of carefully blended coffees roasted in authentic Vietnamese deep butter-roast and the incomparable Legendee. If you are trying to recreate your Vietnamese coffeeshop experience, you may be looking for their Gourmet Blend in the decorative box, as it is the house blend served in all their shops.
Trademark heirloom Vietnamese Robusta originally established in Vietnam in 1890 - 1922, made from select Culi (single, unsplit, peaberry) beans for richest flavor. Dark, strong, full-bodied and naturally sweet, can stand up to plenty of milk and sugar. A particularly excellent choice for iced coffee.
Blend of rich, sharp Robusta and milder fragrant Arabica; one of our most popular and well-rounded coffees.
Creative Three - Arabica Se
Select single-source Buon Me Thuot Highland Arabica, a variety grown only in Vietnam. Se means "Sparrow", the name given to this indigenously developed varietal. A sweet, refreshing coffee with no bitterness. Floral and vanilla notes; extremely versatile.
Blend of culi (single, unsplit) beans of Arabica, Robusta, Chari and Catimor. Strong, very full-bodied and intense, with layers of complexity.
Hand-selected culi (single, unsplit, peaberry) Arabica beans from Buon Me Thuot Highlands for intense and complex flavor. Fragrant, smooth, yet with a dark edge from the peaberries; a gourmet choice.
Still their top-seller worldwide, Trung Nguyen's famous Gourmet Blend of all four bean varieties, in two 250-gram foil bags within Blend is blended from four coffee bean varieties, in two 250-gram foil bags within decorative boxes (500 gram total, 1.2 pounds). This is the traditional decorative boxes (500 gram total, 1.2 pounds). This is the traditional House Blend coffee served at over 1000 Trung Nguyen coffeehouses throughout Southeast Asia.
Important note about the current packaging and ingredients: Gourmet Blend gets some of its complex, subtle flavor from natural flavorings in the form of extracts. In the most recent packaging, this is listed as "natural and artificial flavoring" as a catch-all term that would work for all international definitions, including nations that define all flavorings as "artificial". However, the flavors in Gourmet Blend are all derived from natural sources, and are therefore 100% natural flavorings according to the American definition of the term. Trung Nguyen has agreed to correct this inaccurate phrasing in future shipments. In the meantime, please rest assured that your Gourmet Blend is 100% natural.

Makes a great gift!
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. Sometimes sold under the name "Sang Tao 8", or Creative 8, which is the exact same coffee. 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
The Whole Bean Legendee is a slightly different blend than Legendee Gold. It
features a higher percentage of peaberries and Robusta, with
correspondingly darker flavor. It is delicious hot, of course; however, it is even more exceptional iced.
Many people, including quite a few of us here in the office, consider this
the very best iced coffee in the world.

Naturally low-caffeine selection of Arabica and Chari (Excelsa). This immensely popular coffee here in the USA has been discontinued by Trung Nguyen company without any explanation. We are petitioning the company to return the Passiona to production, but we have no news at this time. Currently we are sold out and we have no expected restock date. We are very sorry for the inconvenience this will cause to the many followers of this coffee.
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 and Gourmet Blend are the only Creative Coffees that have any 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.
