Blend of rich, sharp Robusta and milder fragrant Arabica; one of our most popular and well-rounded coffees. Good hot or iced, black or with cream and sugar. 12 oz bags (340 grams) for ground coffee, 8.8 oz bags (250 gram) for whole bean.
The Trung Nguyen Creative Two (Robusta Arabica) is definitely the hands-down most accessible and popular coffee served in our taste testings and Market booths. It's a wonderful blend of high-quality Arabica and heirloom Robusta. It is an "anytime" coffee, with medium caffeine, well-balanced blended taste, and as good iced as it is hot. We suspect that at one time, a blend like this was the standard approach to fine coffee served around the world, before the days of modern hybrids and confined one-species tastes.
If you have never tried Vietnamese coffee, here is a perfect first candidate. In over 20,000 taste tests we can count on the fingers of one hand the number of people who were not enthusiastic about this coffee.
This coffee is best brewed at 1.5 tablespoons per cup, in a cone-shaped drip machine, French Press, percolator or any soak method. For some reason the coffee is not as successful in commercial machines as some of the other Trung Nguyen coffees, so we don't recommend it as a coffeehouse coffee, despite its immense popularity in home brewing. The whole bean is exceptionally flavorful, and could be experimented with if you want to use the #2 as a base for coffee specialty drinks and a house coffee.
If you are introducing a friend to Vietnamese coffee and you don't know their tastes, you can't go wrong with this balanced and delicious popular favorite coffee with a budget price. It remains our most successful coffee for inclusion in gift packages and Mini-Kits.
The only coffee I drink
My trip to Vietnam showed me how awesome the coffee is. I was delighted to find Heirloom Coffee on the interwebz so I could have a reliable source for Vietnamese coffee. These guys are great!

We received a gift of Vietnamese coffee from our son, who lives in Asia and were hooked. Found Teung Nyugen online and have been very pleased with it.

I do like the flavor of this coffee but if you are looking for something stronger, definitely get the #3 or #4. The description said this would be perfect for the Phin Filter. It is if you are wanting a nice sweet coffee. If you want a stronger taste, like in vietnamese restaurants, again get the 3 or 4. I still gave it a 5 star because there is nothing wrong with the quality, great coffee. Now and then, I like to have my coffee sweet and smooth and other days, nice a strong. Happy coffee tasting!

Relax and enjoy this one!
this is the richest, smoothest tasting coffee I have ever tasted! x2 ! I grind it fine (dense beans) and brew in either a filtered dripper, or a Vietnamese steel single cup. "Off the hook" incredible flavors! Complex! Chocolate definitely rings the bell! Grind them medium coarse for the french press and get all the good stuff that comes with whole beans! The beans came fresh in the bag and are a bit spendy for my budget, but as a treat or dessert coffee, this is truly worth the extras. BTW, the beans are dense so a good grinder and patience are best. Follow the brewing instructions if you want a starting point and then proceed from there. I have also sampled the ground version from the supplier and it is ready to brew - excellent quality and flavors. Relax and enjoy this one.

This is what ...
This is what Vietnamese coffee is supposed to taste like! Rich and smooth with chocolate overtones. There are stronger coffees in this series, but this is the one I remember.
