Moxy: taste is ok. Aroma is too woody.
True grit: Taste and flavor are distinctive but average.
A little darker roast? to bring more taste and flavor?
I am very happy with my Nguyen Coffee Supply order. I am a big fan of Vietnamese coffee, and this product did not disappoint. Hope to be able to visit store in Brooklyn soon.
I cannot say enough good things about the quality and taste and, almost above all, //ease// of this coffee. It really should not be this easy to make an amazing cup of coffee with great flavour and no bitterness, but it absolutely is!
This isn’t just coffee. It’s memories, it’s heritage, it’s family. Being transplanted Vietnamese and growing up in Southern California, some of my earliest experiences that combined all three were the discovery of pho houses that would serve traditional Vietnamese drip iced coffee. But now with this bundled trio of coffee types and flavors, my coffee experience has been elevated to a new level of distinction and refinement. Even before the first sip, the aroma of it brewing is enough to make you fall in love, but that’s an inadequate test because even bad coffee can smell enticing. My first taste was the Loyalty, and it more than delivered in flavor what it promised by way of its aroma. It’s remarkably smooth and rich; perfect on its own or with a drop of vanilla and soy milk. Moxy is also smooth but with a deep sweetness. And TrueGrit doesn’t mess around—it’s straight up bold and yet, still smooth. The trio of phin filter drip sets also makes it easier to brew for different size cups and volumes. I love the whole set and have been experimenting with the different recipes from the website since receiving the kit. But you know what leaves an exceptional taste in my mouth is a coffee company with a conscience. Nguyen Coffee Supply may get me up in the morning, but their humanitarian causes and convictions help me sleep at night. And that’s what’s really good to the last drop.
I found Nguyen Coffee because I wanted to stand up for an Asian-American small business that's in my area. Of course I hoped I would also like the coffee and this new (to me) way of brewing. I'm happy to say I now have a new morning ritual with the "middle" phin and occasionally an afternoon or after dinner pick-me-up with the small phin. The coffee is excellent. I used to do work with a coffee brand and had learned that arabica was superior to robusta, but I have realized that that is incorrect! I will say that the True Grit may be too caffeinated for me. I had a stressful call to make later in the day that I first brewed it and my anxiety *may* have been heightened due to having consumed that rocket boost earlier in the day. But overall each of the blends was well-balanced, delicious and made me a fan. I still might prefer several Stumptown varieties for my cold brew, but for a hot cup with the phin, these coffees are great! They're good for cold-brew too.
