Trung Nguyen – Creative 4
Trung Nguyen Creative Four
250 grams ground coffee
Many loyal Vietnamese drinkers proclaim this their favorite brew.
There are a lot of complex flavors in this coffee, and it also runs a little to the bitter and acid tastes, which is a plus for people who want a full-bodied coffee experience. If you like strong coffee, double up on this one. In winter this is a comfort coffee, with its rich, appetite-awakening flavor and aroma.
Many restaurants and coffee shops serve this coffee as their one “Vietnamese coffee” in the Phin single-serving filter. You can also double it up in the small filter and drink it espresso-strength.
Culi-based coffees have an edge to them that is lost if stored in the fridge as iced coffee concentrate. Drink it fresh… and brew it right onto ice if you can. It’s a sipping coffee when made strong, delightful in every taste.
At one level tablespoon per coffee you get a mild but broad taste. At 1.5 or 2 tablespoons you get that intense flavor it is famous for.
As with most Vietnamese coffees, if you can control the temperature you can get different effects.
- At 185° brewing you can taste all the extra flavor tones and the chocolate/vanilla hints.
- At 205° you lose those flavor tones and get a more American-style coffee.
Trung Nguyen Creative 4 is a very popular blend that you must at least try once!!!!
