We’re excited to share our very first Vietnamese coffee with you: the dark and delicious Opal Bold, new from artisan roaster Fundamental. This cup is delicate, but robust, with an aroma of sweet brown sugar and fragrant cedar, a toasty body like malty dark beer, and a clean finish with a hint of tobacco and cracked pepper. Spicy like an Indonesian and smooth like a Hawaiian, this classic Vietnamese cup is a real delight for dark roast lovers.

"Good morning Vietnam! Haven’t tried this brew and in over a year now. The beans were great, dark and oily. As ground easily picking up the beer and tobacco mix. Very full bodied and smooth in the cup. Fantastic mouthfeel. Great way to start your morning routine over and over again."
"Caffeine: Medium; Grind Level: 40 (Breville Smart Pro Grinder); Settings: Gold Cup w/ 28 oz. water (Breville Precision Brewer); Review: Smells like spice and cedar. Truest label note identity yet. Sips are stout and bring out the sweetest tobacco flavors I can remember. My mouth is actually hot like I ate something spicy. Which is how my mouth would feel after smoking a cigar, peppery and smoky. I actually kind of like the intensity, and it’s unique enough that I can distinguish the label notes much better that maybe 1/2 of the coffees I’ve tried. Overall, I would definitely have a bag on hand. Only thing is, for being a dark roast, it’s more medium bodied. Wish it was a bit fuller. Also, tannins present, so that seems counter intuitive. "

"This coffee is amazingly unique--not acidic, but pleasantly spicy, woodsy notes and a hint of smokiness and pepperiness. Highly recommended, especially if you want something to stand up to milk and/or sugar without losing its varietal characteristics."

"A fine cup. Not super impressed to rate above a 3. Made in a pour over. Picked up a little spice as it cools."

"This coffee was bold and spicy. It reminded me of sitting in front of a fireplace at a ski lodge. "

"This coffee was absolutely delicious. dark, spicy and a little earthy-musty but in a good way. We are really happy we bought this and would buy it again. "

"Sweet smell with a bold taste! The cedar taste was most prominent! "

"I got it in a sample box and was pleasantly surprised. The smell was sweet and the taste was as described. It was pleasantly bitter (if there is such a thing). I drank it black. 1:15 french press. "
