Vietnam Coffee In Thailand

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where I can buy coffee (preferably whole beans) from Vietnam in Thailand? I am looking for the coffee with the rich chocolate flavor that you can get at, for example, Cafe Mai in Hanoi. A friend bought some for me from some place in Silom many years ago but I never could find the shop. I actually have made trips to Vietnam to get it but that was when i (thought) i was rich and i certainly am not now!!

I can get it back in the USA when i am there because someone imports it.

Trung Nguyen is one of the major exporters of Vietnamese coffee, it's a popular brand for Overseas Vietnamese and I'm sure it is the taste you are looking for .

Trung Nguyen coffee is available at many stores in Bangkok and they even have a Thai website at http://www.trungnguyen-th.com/ with all the info you need. Enjoy!

There's also a guy who sells Vietnamese coffee for 99 baht a bag. He advertises on craigslist. His name is Nick and you can contact him at 084664-0401. Nick lives in Ladprao but comes to Sukhumvit fairly often.

I've seen those ridiculous ads. The seller seems unwilling/unable/incapable of providing the most basic pricing information in his advertising. How much coffee is in a bag? Who knows? Who cares!

I suspect that if you bothered to call him, you would find out. As Forest Gump said, ------ is as -------- does....

Why would I call him? I've learned all I need to know from the ads. Oh yeah, I could get a free "coffee machine" if I buy some "bags" of coffee.

French colonists, realising that conditions were ideal for coffee cultivation, first planted coffee in the South Central Highlands region of Vietnam. The coffee also proved popular with a local resident: the common palm civet (Paradoxurus Hermaphoditus), a weasel-like animal, which quickly developed a taste for the sweet, fleshy outer layers of the coffee 'cherries' - the fruit of the coffee bush.

It was found that the fruit seeds, what we know as coffee 'beans', passed though the civet largely undigested and the resulting beans, when washed and sun-dried, had undergone a remarkable change to produce a uniquely smooth and delicious flavour. Perhaps this was because the civet would choose only the best and ripest beans to eat, but also because the beans had been modified by enzyme reactions on their journey.

Legendee Coffee is wonderful and you can order on-line

Its quite nice... and you can order by mail.

Correct, they also deliver in the UK form a web site. I order it and have it mailede to a friends house and they bring it over when visiting 12 bags at a time, I also find when drunk neat a bit rich for me I mix it 50/50 with a local macro brand.

Tis is sold in Vietnam called weasel coffee, not the same as the chocolate flavour.
