The Story: Vinh grew up drinking coffee since he was a kid, enjoying Vietnamese iced coffee: a strong concentrated coffee that's usually brewed over ice and sweetened with rich, delicious condensed milk. Today, he brews coffee every day, and it has become a part of his routine before a rehearsal or a long shoot day. Movement reflects the smooth transition that coffee brings us from the morning into the day ahead, with purpose and intent. Discover and enjoy Vinh’s creative works at VinhCreative.com

 

BLEND APPROACH

Each season, our partners at origin work tirelessly to process both washed and natural coffees that are exquisite in their own differing cup profiles. We found that by taking a delicately floral and juicy washed coffee and blending it with a pungent and intense natural, we could have a cup that was greater than the sum of its parts. Our approach to creating blends is a bit different at Onyx. We select a few washed and natural Ethiopian coffees that we feel fit the profile of the blend, and we then adjust the ratio of the two coffees in the roast in order to strike a balance between the pungent natural and the delicate washed component. Feel excited that the coffee you are tasting is always in season, and therefore, it is cupping and tasting to its full potential. We will never compromise our commitment to high-quality coffees and blends, whether it’s a single origin release or a blend component. You will not find Onyx buying “blender” coffees to save cost or prolong a good coffee. We also always keep blends to three coffees or less and maintain ratios in the build. This way, what you extract is the flavor profile we designed. Movement by Vinh Nguyen is composed of Ethiopia Worka Natural and Ethiopia Durato Bombe Natural.
