Copper Cow Coffee Reviews
Before we jump into the review, we want to tell you a little more about Vietnamese coffee and what “pour over” style coffee is. These were both new to us and they may be new to you as well!
Copper Cow says that Vietnamese coffee is coffee made from beans grown in Vietnam and/or coffee served with sweetened condensed milk. The pour over process of brewing coffee consists of pouring hot water over ground coffee through a filter several times. Combine Vietnamese coffee with the pour over process and you get Copper Cow Coffee!
For our Copper Cow Coffee reviews, we received the Best Seller’s Bundle which includes three pour over sets in the following flavors, Cream, Churro Latte, and Lavendar. Each Copper Cow pour over set contains 5 coffee packets and 5 creamer packets. This set is $44 if you purchase one time or $31.50 if you subscribe to regular deliveries (either every 30 or 60 days). This works out to between $2.10 – $2.93 per cup of Vietnamese pour over coffee. Plus, you get free shipping on orders $30+.
Copper Cow Coffee uses a coffee blend made from 70% Robusta and 30% Arabica beans, which they say will give a strong yet silky brew. Their coffee beans are grown in the Central Highlands of Vietnam on sustainable, organic farms using organic agricultural and processing methods (that means no chemicals, pesticides, or GMO’s). All coffee flavors are gluten-free and soy-free. Plus, your used coffee filter and grounds are biodegradable and the outer foil packet is recyclable.
Copper Cow Coffee offers customers the choice of a sweetened condensed milk creamer, using milk from local California farms, or dairy-free coconut creamer. The regular creamer is gluten-free, but the coconut creamers do contain gluten.
Both the Copper Cow Coffee coffee packs and creamers have a shelf life of a year.
Let’s dig into the 3 flavors that we received: The Classic/Cream, Churro Latte, and Lavendar.
About: Copper Cow Coffee’s best-selling product, The Classic is an unflavored coffee combined with the sweetened condensed milk creamer.
Taste: Smooth coffee taste with a good kick of caffeine. The creamer was rich and sweet (a little goes a long way!). This was my personal favorite and a great introduction to the world of both Vietnamese and pour over coffee.
About: A blend of cinnamon Vietnamese coffee and sweetened condensed milk creamer.
Taste: A spicy cinnamon flavor with a kick. If you like cinnamon you will love the Churro Latte. We tried it hot and it had a bit too much spice and cinnamon flavor for me personally, but I think it would make a great iced coffee combined with lots of milk and sugar to tame the strong flavor. Or it would be great over vanilla ice cream! This flavor will fill your home with a wonderful cinnamon smell.
About: A blend of lavender Vietnamese coffee and sweetened condensed milk creamer.
Taste: With the aroma of lavender, this coffee has a floral taste with a lavender finish. I’m not a huge fan of floral tasting drinks and was a little apprehensive about trying this coffee. And while it wasn’t my favorite, it was still enjoyable. We prefer this coffee American style with lots of creamer, plus milk, over ice. This gives you a coffee taste with a hint of lavender. Want more lavender taste? Make it hot Vietnamese style for a punch of floral notes in every sip.
Copper Cow Coffee comes in a variety of flavors including fun seasonal flavors like Candy Cane, Ginger, and Pumpkin Spice plus Rosemary, Coconut Vegan, and Decaf. In addition, they also have several teas including Thai Iced Tea and Chai Spiced Tea.
You can enjoy your Copper Cow Coffee hot, iced, or cold brewed. Instructions for each are below. In general, the more times that you pour hot water over your coffee the more diluted it will become. For a stronger cup, add less water and run through the filter 2-3 times.
Check out our video below to see just how easy making pour over coffee using Copper Cow Coffee sets is!
Step 1: Tear open the bag of coffee grounds
Step 2: Hang the wings of the bag on each side of your cup
TIP: Do not stretch the wings out too much as they will lose their hold and won’t be able to support the water.
Step 3: Wet the coffee grounds with a small amount of water and wait ~30 seconds. We recommend using hot water that is 195-205 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step 4: Pour enough water to submerge the coffee ground
Step 5: Take a short break and allow your coffee to filter through
Step 6: Repeat “Step 4” and “Step 5” a few more times
Vietnamese Style: To get a strong cup of coffee like you’d find on the streets of Vietnam, only fill your filter 2-3 times – or roughly 4oz.
American Style: To achieve a larger, more American style coffee of 6oz.-8oz., fill your filter 4-6 times with hot water.
Step 7: Feel free to add as much creamer as you please.
Step 8: Your used coffee filter and grounds are perfect to throw in the compost bin and the outer foil of each packet is recyclable!

Copper Cow Coffee brings you premium Vietnamese pour over coffee with all-natural flavors, sustainably sourced and organic coffee beans, and quality creamers directly to your door.
Overall, we enjoyed our introduction to Vietnamese coffee and the pour over coffee process. Our favorite set was the Classic Cream as it provided a smooth coffee taste with a nice kick of caffeine. The sweetened condensed milk creamers were a wonderful addition to this coffee and there was plenty of creamer for even the sweetest coffee lovers. We also love that the filters and grounds are biodegradable.
We did find it a bit challenging to hang the bag on some coffee cups and that you can not overstretch the bag or it will fall into your cup while you are pouring in the water. We also felt that the flavored sets were stronger than expected, which for some could be a good thing, but for us, they were too strong and needed to be diluted with water and/or creamer and milk.
If you are interested in trying Vietnamese coffee and/or pour over coffee Copper Cow Coffee is a great choice. With no added equipment you can make barista-quality coffee in the comfort of your home or office.
