The trademark Trung Nguyen Gourmet Blend in the decorative box is an inexpensive introduction to the world of Trung Nguyen blended coffees. It is often the first Trung Nguyen coffee that people try, since it is the house coffee for the Trung Nguyen coffee shops throughout Vietnam, and the most common coffee exported by Trung Nguyen.
It is a careful blend of 4 varieties (Arabica, Robusta, Chari (aka Excelsa), and Catimor) that are grown under Trung Nguyen direction in ideal environments across the Buon Me Thuot Highlands. The blend is incredibly fragrant and it fills the room with scents of spice, chocolates and fruit, and it’s a great coffee that should be brewed at 1 tablespoon per cup to preserve its fine balance.
Makes an incredible cup of coffee in the single-cup Vietnamese filters and in a French Press, but we have also had great success with any drip coffeemaker that takes a medium or coarse grind, percolators and office-style coffee machines (Bunn, etc.)
In drip machines or percolators, just be sure to use about 20% less than you would with most other coffees, because this formula, as with most TN coffees, is very dense and flavourful and will brew more coffee per tablespoon than most other brands.
