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.

Legendee - Creative 8

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. 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.

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 for you.

Passiona

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.

Available Ground only

We are sorry, but we are unable to supply Passiona at this time because we are being told it is a discontinued product. We hope they will reconsider and put it back in production but until then, we are out.

Since we will not have more Passiona for a long time (if ever), we encourage you to try another delicious coffee by Trung Nguyen: the Creative 3. Many people who love Passiona also enjoy Creative 3, and it is relatively low in caffeine (70 mg per serving)

Premium Blend

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

stainless steel vietnamese coffee filter

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.
