Discover Classic Legendee
Classic Legendee, whole bean
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.
The Classic Legendee became unavailable for export in 2007, and was only being shipped to the company’s own coffee shops, but now we have obtained a shipment in whole bean and are pleased to offer the return of the original Legendee formula to those fans of the coffee who have been hoping for its return.
This Classic Legendee is a blend of Arabica, Excelsa and Robusta, corresponding to a popular formula fed to civets in the production of the bolder Kopi Luwak coffees from Sumatra and the Philippines. The aroma and taste are incomparably rich and smooth, with a complete lack of bitterness.
Serving iced brings out additional flavors that are never found in regular roast coffee. Many people consider this Legendee blend the world’s best iced coffee, and we heartily agree.
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. The Trung Nguyen coffeehouses in Vietnam seem to consider it more of a trademark coffee for single-serve at the café than something people buy to take home.
Enjoy one of the world’s most unique coffees at a reasonable price, while our current supply lasts!
