New owner plans to sell Vietnamese coffee in Buford

Aug 8, 2013 - The Associated Press

BUFORD -- The tiny Wyoming town of Buford will be taking on a Vietnamese flavor.

Pham Dinh Nguyen bought the unincorporated area 30 miles west of Cheyenne last year from longtime owner Don Sammons.

Buford has billed itself as the smallest town in the United States with a population of one.

Nguyen plans to give it another identity, renaming it Buford PhinDeli Town. The name will reflect his plans to sell Vietnamese coffee to travelers along Interstate 80. PhinDeli roughly translates to "delicious filter coffee."

Nguyen still lives in Vietnam for now.

His marketing representative, Amy Bates, said Nguyen plans to hold a grand re-opening of the town on Sept. 3.
