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.

"First tried this as pour-over. I'm not too clear on what 'malt' is meant to taste like but it puts me in mind of a malted shake or milk balls and that is not present here. The overwhelming flavor is very akin to Guinness, very stout-beer-ish. Highly bitter pour-over, took a good dose of milk and sugar. The cedar comes through in a French-pressed cup along with a much tamer stout taste. I actually drank the french press cup black. Much more balance. Immersion brew is the way here. Coarse grind, french press, four minutes, 1:12 ratio. "

"Better than a Starbucks cup, but I just didn't get the cedar and malty flavors it claimed to have. It made for a decent cold brew on a really coarse setting and about 20 hours to steep."

"Absolutely delicious dark roast coming from a person who typically prefers medium-light roasts! The darker side of this roast makes it so malty & sweet, rather then bringing out any of the usual bitterness. Just a touch of milk makes it even better."

"Definitely a departure from the coffee I normally buy but I don't regret it! I found it to be very toasty without any bitterness."

"For any die hard coffee ☕️ drinkers who like a full, robust cold brew this is it. Just the perfect coffee to brew 24 hours and then enjoy. My only regret is that I just brewed the last of this. Def 5 stars ⭐️."

"Back to Vietnam again after almost a year away. Loved the robust flavor but not too bold in what I expected in such a stout, almost malty like coffee. Def not for one who enjoys lighter roasts. A good, solid medium roasted no frills cuppa for sure. Enjoy it as such!"

"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."
