Classic Black Robusta from Nguyen Coffee Supply

Those who know Sprudge will know that this publishing house is a fan of quality Robusta. It’s something we’ve been talking about for years and talk a lot about in our first book. But one New York company has gone further, launching something called The Robusta Pledge, “a global initiative to reassess inequalities and biases within the coffee community and work towards building a more inclusive coffee future. , equitable and sustainable”. by directly advancing robusta-growing coffee communities.

This company is called Nguyen coffee supply, founded by first-generation entrepreneur-activist Sahra Nguyen. Nguyen was instrumental in changing the policy of the national chain Whole Foods banning the sale of robusta coffee. And now the company is launching a line of one-of-a-kind ready-to-drink products containing 100% robusta from Vietnam.

We spoke digitally with the founder of Nguyen Coffee Supply, Sahra Nguyen, to find out more.

The Nguyen Coffee Supply website has many recipes. What’s your favorite for the Classic Black Cold Brew?

It’s delicious in a can. However, we have seen our community drink this with milk (your choice) and sugar over ice…or mixed with seltzer water.

Here is a recipe using the Classic Black Cold Brew:

Yuzu Cold Brew Spritz


2oz Classic Black Cold Brew*
4 ounces of sparkling water
¼ oz yuzu juice
Optional: ¼ oz simple syrup
Mint to garnish


1. In a glass filled with ice, add the simple syrup, yuzu juice and sparkling water.
2. Top with Classic Black Cold Brew.
3. Garnish with mint and enjoy!

Feel free to use more to your liking or adjust the ratios if you want a bigger drink.
