Searching for Vietnamese Dalat and Weasel coffees in US

Polecat | Oct 17, 2010 07:39 AM

Hi all,

We were recently in Hanoi, Vietnam and had the good fortune to purchase some amazing Weasel and Dalat coffee beans there. Naturally, in a little more than two months, we're all out of the Dalat and making our way through the Weasel brand but quick. In emailing back and forth with the the proprietor of the shop in Hanoi (Tour Cafe at 103 Hang Buom, for anyone who's interested), I discovered that the delivery fee from there is pretty expensive. So, yeah, hindsight is 20-20: we should have bought more when there. Next time in Hanoi, we'll buy a small truck full.

This is incredible, bold and flavorful coffee, though - especially the Dalat - the wife and I are developing a borderline dangerous dependency. We're seeing Weasel poop around every corner and are mouthing the words, "Dalat" in our otherwise deprived sleep.

Anyone know of a vendor that has these coffees Stateside? I've done a google search, which, so far, has only yielded links to Vietnam blogs, vendors, etc. I realize that the Weasel brand is made in other parts of Southeast Asia, such as Indonesia, so I'm not going to limit my search to Vietnam here.

Any info, web links and so on, would be much appreciated.
