Indochine grows authentic Bourbon Arabica in the Cau Dat (also known as Da Lat) Highlands region of central Vietnam. All Indochine coffees are shade-grown and environmentally responsible. These heirloom Cau Dat Bourbon beans are exceptionally aromatic and rich, possessing a fullness of flavor that has been lost in modern, overbred Arabicas. Their pure Bourbon Arabica coffees are an ideal place to start if you are trying Vietnamese coffee for the first time, as they are very accessable to the American palate.

We know the Indochine Estates family personally and have seen pictures of both the estates and the surrounding communities. We are proud to support these independent coffee producers, the good work they do for their community, and their amazing coffee.

In addition to their smooth and aromatic pure Bourbon Arabica coffees, Indochine also produces several blended coffees in the authentic Vietnamese tradition. These coffees have a darker, more complex flavor, and handle cream particularly well.


Indochine Gold - exclusive blend!

Indochine Estates Coffee Gold Blend

Commissioned exclusively for us by Indochine Estates, the Gold Blend is a fabulous mix of high-altitude, shade-grown Robusta Peaberry, Dalat Bourbon Arabica, and rare Excelsa beans. It's designed to be an accessible and rich-tasting coffee, a crowd-pleaser for our own customers. Because this is a product prepared especially for us, we can offer it at a very reasonable price.

This custom blend created for us features premium Buon Me Thuot Highlands Peaberries approximately 60%, blended with Bourbon Arabica and Excelsa for a truly well-rounded cup.

It is a medium roast and has the rich, buttery mouthfeel you would expect from a blend of these beans, and appeals to the heirloom Robusta fan as well as any coffee consumer who loves blended coffees that provide all the best of balance, body and aftertaste. Our focus group found themselves comparing this coffee to a number of world-class coffees costing two or three times the price.

As an iced coffee or drink base this is a really balanced cup, but not as distinctly dark and deep as the Indochine Dark. The Robusta base causes iced coffee to have a surprisingly mellow profile.

Metrics
  • Caffeine: MEDIUM-HIGH
  • Acidity: MEDIUM
  • Intensity: MEDIUM

Serving Suggestions:
Delicious hot as a drip coffee or ground fine as espresso; has strong character hot but is mild when iced. Handles cream and sugar well. Quite versatile. Brews especially well in drip machines and percs, 1.5 to 2 tblsp per cup.

Indochine's Brio Sun Blend

Indochine Estates Coffee Brio Sun Blend

Designed as a breakfast coffee, the Sun Blend is popular in many Vietnamese resorts and is sure to start the day right. A blend of Bourbon Arabica, Excelsa, and Highlands Peaberries, the Sun Blend is bright and pleasant, with a chocolaty aftertaste.The balance of the Peaberry and Excelsa is higher in this blend, giving it a lively and complex taste. The beans are roasted in butter oil in traditional Vietnamese style. This is an affordable gourmet coffee that also ices well.

The Brio line contains several other products designed especially for travellers looking for comfort away from home. Their coffees and cocoas can be found in the best Vietnamese hotels. We hope to expand our offering of Indochine's Brio beverages in the coming year.

Metrics

Indochine Dark

Indochine Estates Coffee Dark

The Cau Dat Highlands adopted the French art of preparing coffee more than one hundred years ago. Today, they prefer their coffee dark, velvety and sweet. This prized blend of signature Bourbon Arabica, Excelsa, and premium highlands Peaberries is full-bodied and nutty, with a hint of brown sugar, and ices fabulously, too. We have sampled this coffee to the local market to an overwhelmingly positive result.Similar in bean ratio to the An Nam Blend but with a higher percentage of Excelsa.

Although it's called "dark", it isn't burnt at all; it's roasted in the ideal Vietnamese style so that the entire bean becomes dark and rich without scorching the outside. This makes it suitable for anyone who loves the flavor of a dark roast but has trouble with the acidity and burnt elements in American-style dark roasts.

In our taste-tests with local shoppers at our favorite market, the Indochine Dark has blown everyone away. Our customers have been universally delighted with it; this makes it an excellent gift, because you can feel confident that the recipient will love it. It is a coffee with almost universal appeal; a great traditional Vietnamese coffee with a bright Arabica edge.

Metrics
  • Caffeine: AVERAGE
  • Acidity: MEDIUM
  • Intensity: HIGH

Serving Suggestions:
Delicious hot; fabulous iced. Handles cream and sugar well. Quite versatile. Brews especially well in drip machines and percs, 1.5 to 2 tblsp per cup.

Indochine's Le Marais French Roast

Indochine Estates Coffee Le Marais French Roast

A true French Roast (not charbroiled!), Le Marais is substantial in body, bold and bittersweet, yet smooth. It's mostly Bourbon Arabica coffee with a small percentage of Excelsa and Buon Me Thuot Peaberry, sure to please the French Roast connoisseur.

Possessed of the dynamic acidity beloved of French Roast connoisseurs, Le Marais also has a fullness of flavor often missing from American-style French Roasts. We have become accustomed in the USA to coffeehouse chainstore "French Roast" which brings coffee to the second "crack" during roasting, burning the sugars and oils and causing a breakdown of the coffee flavor elements. Many of the compounds produced by over-roasting are highly intolerable to digestion, resulting in heartburn and other unpleasant reactions.

German scientists (Germany is one of the world's top exporters and importers of coffee!) have identified over 1000 compounds in coffee, one of the most complex foods on the planet. Perhaps 40-100 of these substances create the flavor we think of as coffee. Probably half of these elements are destroyed when coffee is burnt, causing a shallow flavor overwhelmed by a smokey or charcoal taste. Some coffee enthusiasts like this. For those who don't, there is Indochine Estates Le Marais!

Le Marais is a guardian of the original true French Roast standard, using an heirloom variety of Bourbon Arabica that is the predecessor of famous world coffees including the Jamaica Blue Mountain Region coffee. Take a trip back in time and enjoy this gem, roasted slowly to a uniform dark color. Say no to "crack"!

Metrics
  • Caffeine: AVERAGE
  • Acidity: HIGH
  • Intensity: HIGH

Serving Suggestions:
We prefer it hot and strong. The French Press extracts maximum flavor from this blend. Also fine in the Phin filter and drip machines. Use 1.5 - 2 tblsp per cup. French Roast is not a great candidate for icing.

Indochine D'Annam Espresso

Indochine Estates D'Annam Espresso

The new D'Annam Espresso from Indochine was commissioned by us for our personal tastes. For over a decade now, award-winning espressos from Italy have relied on a secret ingredient: Highlands Robusta from Vietnam (written up in 2009 in the memoires of a famous consultant to the Italian espresso industry).

We asked Indochine Estates to add 20% high-altitude Robusta into their Indochine Espresso, shown above. Similar in all other respects, the D'Annam Blend features a broader, bolder taste while still retaining the original natural sweetness and buttery mouthfeel of Bourbon Arabica. We have espresso aficionados traveling 50 miles to purchase our trial runs of this espresso, and now we have our first full production run.

We feel that this may be the finest espresso in the world in terms of broad and balanced flavor, natural sweetness, yet bold profile, and exceptional crema.

Indochine Estates delicious creamy instant coffee

Indochine Estates' Brio line was originally created for local fine hotels and tourist resorts; you may be familiar with the popular Brio Sun coffee, designed to make your morning bright but delicious anytime. However, the Brio line also features instant coffee and cocoa mixes.

Our first Brio Instant product was the Creamy Hot Chocolate mix. This has been a big hit with our customers, and is often sold commercially as gourmet hot chocolate in places like the Visitor Center of the Mauna Lau Observatory in Hawaii.

We have recently received a shipment of Indochine's newest 3-in-1 formula (coffee, creamer, sugar). This mix is different from G7 Instant 3-in-1 in several ways. First, Brio 3-in-1 comes in a 30-gram packet (versus 16 grams for G7). Each packet makes an average 10-ounce serving, which is almost double the 6-ounce serving size of G7 (Euro and Asian cup size standard is 6 ounces).

Also, the Brio 3-in-1 is a darker roast and stronger coffee. It's hard to compare and rate brands for consumers, as so much of the taste is subjective. But the Brio 3-in-1 has already gained its own enthusiastic fans because of its different formula. Please note: We were shipped the Brio 3-in-1 packets prior to production of the outer box, so the 12 packets are shipped "loose".

Enjoy a rich cup of instant anywhere you can find hot water, or ice it for summer. Try our new recipe for Brio Mocha Granita, a delicious and refreshing summer ice that can be prepared in under two minutes with a blender:

Ingredients:

1 packet Brio Creamy Hot Chocolate mix
2 packets Indochine Instant Coffee 3-in-1
1.5 cups of ice

Directions: Blend the instant mixes with 1/2 cup of room temperature water in a blender for 20 seconds. Add 1.5 cups of ice. Set blender on Frappe or Smoothie setting and blend for 20-30 seconds until there are no ice chunks. Pour into wide dessert glass and enjoy with a spoon.

WARNING: This Granita is addictive (metaphorically speaking!). Don't make three glasses of it or you will eat three glasses of it. It's incredible.

Actual customer review of Brio Creamy Mint Chocolate Mix:

"Len ~ The mint hot chocolate is as satisfying as eating a whole sleeve of Girl Scout mint cookies! Thanks for turning me on to it! Bestest, Tina"

Indochine Estates' Brio line was originally created for local fine hotels and tourist resorts; you may be familiar with the popular Brio Sun coffee, designed to make your morning bright but delicious anytime. However, the Brio line also features instant coffee and cocoa mixes.

Our first Brio Instant product was the Creamy Hot Chocolate mjix. This has been a big hit with our customers, and is often sold commercially as gourmet hot chocolate in places like the Visitor Center of the Mauna Lau Observatory in Hawaii.

Brio Chocolate Mix is available in classic chocolate or mint chocolate, both of which are head and shoulders above other cocoa mixes we've tried. The pure flavor comes from using the finest natural ingredients, including world-renowned New Zealand milk (no melamine!) and natural cocoa, with no unpronouncable ingredients.

This chocolate mix can be made with water, milk, or a combination; it's also good hot or iced, although it's best to mix it with a little hot water and then add cold milk and ice. We've also added it to brewed coffee to make a truly fabulous mocha!

Single-Cup Coffee Brewer
- Authentic Vietnamese café style

stainless steel vietnamese coffee filter

Although Indochine coffees brew extremely well in regular drip coffeemakers and French presses, we also offer the Vietnamese-style Phin filter for those wishing to re-create an authentic café experience. Coffee is made one cup at a time in these single-serving brewers, usually over sweetened condensed milk, and results in an intense cup of strong, rich coffee.
