Makes a great gift!
Legendee Gold is a coffee created in the style of the classic Legendee, but with a new approach to taste and balance. Characteristics include an incredible natural sweetness --many customers who regularly sweeten their coffee like this coffee unsweetened-- and an acidity and aroma more typical of fine Arabicas than the original Legendee blend.
The Legendee family is one of the world's most famous branded coffees, and we are the only authorized distributor in the USA. Sometimes sold under the name "Sang Tao 8", or Creative 8, which is the exact same coffee. It is the flagship coffee of the original Creative Coffee series that made Trung Ngyen famous. Legendee is sometimes referred to as "weasel" coffee in Vietnam.
Each bag of Legendee is shipped with a full-color card detailing the history and celebrity of this famous coffee.
Important: Legendee has experienced a surge in popularity, which is great! But now it's selling faster than we can replenish it, due to supply delays caused by Trung Nguyen's current corporate restructuring. We are going to have to air-lift in some emergency Legendee. Meanwhile, to avoid selling out entirely, we must limit purchases to no more than 10 bags (5 kilos) per customer, per week. Thank you for understanding!
One of the world's most famous coffees, the Legendee is a unique enzymatically-treated coffee that releases flavors bound in the beans and not released under ordinary processing. The Legendee product is largely regarded as the world's most successful attempt to produce a coffee with the balance and flavor of the famous Kopi Luwak, or Civet/Weasel coffee. Trung Nguyen worked hard on achieving a new balance of Arabica and Excelsa beans in this formula.
Tourists to Vietnam often don't consider their visit complete until they have sat in a Trung Nguyen coffeehouse and tried the Legendee brewed by the single-cup Phin filters. We get a lot of comments also that the Legendee is more available here to buy on our site for home brewing than it is in Vietnam, and at a lower cost. Sometimes sold under the name "Sang Tao 8", or Creative 8, which is the exact same coffee.
A coffee that please all tastes, it makes an excellent gift that is sure to impress.

Costa Rica's Dota Tarrazu Region
"Tarrazu", like Champagne, has just been made a restricted term that can only apply to coffees grown in one small mountainous region. The Tarrazu region produces some of the most highly-prized coffee in Costa Rica. It is home to a variety of subspecies of Arabica, which are combined to create an exceptionally well-rounded and rich cup. One particular valley, called Dota Tarrazu, receives a slightly different amount of sun and rain, which results in absolute top-tier beans. Recently a crop from this micro-region, from a subspecies of Arabica called Gesha, was a Cup of Excellence winner and much celebrated. Learn more and browse our Costa Rica Dota Tarrazu coffees here.
