Heirloom Coffee in Medford (Vietnamese coffees)--any experiences?

emannths | Nov 18, 201106:43 AM     1

I noticed that one of the Groupons today is for Heirloom Coffees, a Vietnamese coffee retailer. Outside of Cafe du Monde and the occasional order of coffee at Vietnamese restaurants, I know nothing about either the store or the imported coffees that they sell. My coffee geek hackles get raised at the prospect of long-ago roast dates and the use of robusta in many of the blends, but I'm curious if anyone has had first-hand experience with the stuff they sell at the shop. The discount makes it all-but free, but if it's in the same ballpark as CdM and the cans of Vietnamese stuff I can get in Market Basket, it's not worth the trip for me.

Here's the store's website: http://www.vietnamese-coffee.com/inde...

Edit to add: Groupon's sold out now, but I'd still be interested if you know anything.
