Ok, this deal is really only for people who like Vietnamese coffee, and possibly for anyone who wants to try Vietnamese coffee. I've tried almost all brands of Vietnamese coffee,sat in numerous Viet Cafes in Vietnam (HCMC, Saigon) and I have to say my favourite [that I can buy online] is Trung Lam Home Blend for $6.50 a package:
Trung Lam Home Blend :
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, and Excelsa (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.
500 gram (1.17 lb) bag, ground for Phin filter, French Press, cone-shaped drip machine and pour-over.
But everyone has their own taste, another favourite among Vietnamese coffee drinkers is the Trung Nguyen "Sang Tao" Creative line, with Creative #1 ,#2 and #4 being very popular. Essentially, #1 is more coffee flavour, #4 is more on the cocoa side, and #2 and #3 are in between. Sang Tao Creative #1 is on sale for $6.95 now.
Most people will probably recognize the "Cafe Du Mond" brand , the one in the yellow tin can etc. It's ok but I think a bit over priced and over rated.
Don't bother with any of the instant viet coffee though, tastes nothing like the original!
