When you first open the can, you will immediately notice its dark texture. The texture may remind you of baking flour. This coffee has a butter oil added in the roasting process, probably to slow down oxidation which can spell the demise of even the finest coffee. In addition, Trung Nyugen coffee is a coarse ground coffee. If you have a French press coffee maker, that's great. You are ready to make a cup. If you are not ready to make a commitment to purchase one at this time, be sure to add another paper filter in your coffee maker, to allow the water to soak up the flavors during brewing.
This coffee seems to me as an "anytime of day" coffee. But as one of the other reviewers stated, this blend tastes bitter without milk. I would agree with him. If you are an expresso or black coffee drinker and are satisfied with your coffee, it may not be worth your while to try this one. Trung Nyugen is a comfort coffee with a rich explosion of four different coffee beans, each one with its unique characteristic. I prefer to prepare it with condensed milk and a small amount of artificial sweetner. If I use half and half, the results taste much like Arabica coffee, which spoils the effect I am looking for. It seems to have a higher than average caffeine content and is slightly acidic but never bitter. It is probably the most intense tasting coffee you will have because of its unique blends. Finally, this coffee has a very small amount of cocoa flavoring.Read more ›
I don't mean to be pretentious, but Vietnamese coffee simply *has* to be brewed differently than you would any other type of coffee.
Vietnamese coffee is a very dark, very bitter (but also sweet with the addition of creamer or sweet condensed milk, which is what you'd most often get), and very concentrated (almost oily). It has powerful notes of cocoa, and is delicious and unique.
Here's the thing though- while it's ground very similarly to a french press grind, it can not be properly made in a french press. What you need is a Vietnamese coffee filter set, which you can find for 3USD on Amazon (or 50 cents on the street markets of Vietnam :P ).
Preparation is also very different from french pressing, and is more like filtered brewing where the hot water comes on top of the coffee and gently sips through. It has a few rules though, that you absolutely need to follow-
Alright, so you'd need the filter, the coffee, and preferably some measuring spoons. Most filters are composed of 4 parts: There's the wide flat filter that goes on top of the cup and holds everything else above the cup, on top of that goes the main, cup like filter where the coffee and water go, on top of that is the secondary filter which is flat and usually has some sort of a handle sticking up; the secondary filter is placed inside the main filter above the dry coffee before the water is added. And the last part is the lid.Read more ›
