NEW YORK, N.Y, USA — Nguyen Coffee Supply has launched two additional Ready-To-Drink (RTD) cold brew products to their Vietnamese Coffee Line. Joining their Classic Black Cold Brew, the two new cold brew cans include Condensed Milk and Coconut and will be available on the Nguyen Coffee Supply website and at Whole Foods Markets in New York City. Nguyen Coffee Supply’s RTD is a first of its kind in the United States with national distribution and made with 100% robusta beans from Vietnam and manufactured in the United States.
This launch coincides with Whole Foods’ store opening at 1 Wall Street in Manhattan. With a full lineup of 3 RTDs, the cold brew series features 100% Vietnamese robusta coffee and different flavors for all coffee drinkers.
“After kicking off our cold brew launch with the bold & strong Classic Black, I’m thrilled to share the nostalgic flavors of condensed milk and coconut that represent Vietnam’s unique coffee culture,” says Founder, Sahra Nguyen. “The sweet and velvety milks pair perfectly with robusta beans.”
All Nguyen Coffee Supply Ready-To-Drink (RTD) cold brews are made with 100% robusta coffee from Vietnam.

The drink is a great natural energy alternative with 110 calories, 11g sugar, 180 mg caffeine, 100% natural ingredients, is gluten-free, and is shelf stable. The Coconut cold brew pays homage to the traditional cà phê d?a of Vietnam (robusta coffee with fresh coconut milk over ice). This drink is a nod to the tropics and is a delicious vegan version for coffee and milk lovers.

Condensed Milk and Coconut SRP 6 pack = $24, SRP 12 pack = $48.Nguyen Coffee Supply’s first RTD flavor, Classic Black, is a BevNet Best of 2022 Award Winner for “Best New Product” category.
Nguyen Coffee Supply expands the RTD coffee category with three bold & delicious product innovations and continues their company mission to uplift the resilient robusta bean and bring Vietnamese coffee to the masses.
Since 2018, Nguyen Coffee Supply has been a fierce advocate and champion of the resilient robusta bean with the Los Angeles Time hailing “Nguyen has emerged as the leading voice for Vietnamese craft coffee in the U.S.”.
In addition to being a relatively unknown but delicious brew, robusta’s farming practices are more sustainable and utilize fewer pesticides. Its beans, higher in caffeine content, are lower in fats and sugars.
Despite the coffee industry’s stigma against the robusta variety which excluded robusta farming communities from entering specialty coffee markets, Nguyen Coffee Supply set out to change the narrative, educate consumers and expand the coffee conversation to be inclusive of robusta. Vietnam is the second largest producer of coffee in the world (and the leading producer of robusta beans) and yet the nation has not played a significant role in specialty coffee culture—a sector estimated at $25 billion in the U.S.
Nguyen Coffee Supply ships to customers in all 50 states and internationally to Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Singapore, UK and is available in restaurants and cafés in New York City, Washington D.C., Seattle, Kansas City, as well as at all Neighborhood Goods locations nationally.
It is also sold in Whole Food, Fresh Direct, Gorillas, Say Wee and more. Nguyen Coffee Supply can be enjoyed in a wide array of styles including the traditional cà phê s?a dá (Vietnamese coffee with sweetened condensed milk & ice) as well as the pour over, chemex, french press, drip, espresso and cold brew.
