    Cupping Notes: Bold, Earthy, Baker's Chocolate, Syrupy, Cedar

    This take on our fan favorite Sumatra is darker and bolder with an earthy, cocoa flavor.

    Fine Ground: At a fine grind, coffee should be soft to the touch – slightly finer than granulated sugar.

    Espresso: Great espresso requires skill, patience and quality equipment. Without these things, and a proper grind, espresso can be thin and weak or over extracted and clog in the portafilter. The perfect grind is essential to reaching espresso nirvana; an intensely rich and creamy extraction with thick crema and well rounded flavor.
    Grind: Fine/Very Fine

    Aeropress: The Aeropress is a quick and efficient way to make flavorful, rich coffee with low acidity and bitterness. With specially designed micro-filter technology the Aeropress consistently provides some of the best coffee in just under 20 seconds.
    Grind: Fine/Medium

    Medium Ground: At a medium grind, coffee should be gritty like sand with no considerably large pieces.

    Auto Drip Pot: The Auto Drip style coffee maker is an efficient and hassle-free way to make a fresh pot. With the correct grind and water to coffee ratio, it IS possible to get a great cup of coffee using this method.
    Grind: Medium

    Chemex: The Chemex is an elegant brewing device that extracts only the purest, most flavorful coffee without any bitterness or sediment. Because of the incredible functionality and design, the Chemex, paired with Chemex Bonded Filters, create a pure coffee experience unlike any other.
    Grind: Medium/Coarse

    Coarse Ground: At a coarse grind, coffee is separated into large fragments similar to grained kosher salt.

    French Press: The French Press is a classic and easy way to prepare decadent and smooth coffee and can easily be converted to brew cold coffee. The coffee grounds and water are separated by a fine mesh plunger leaving only fresh brewed coffee after 5 short minutes.
    Grind: Coarse

    Toddy Cold Brew: The Toddy Cold Brew system is a simple and consistent way to extract a delicious and low-acid brew. Oils and fatty acids that would normally settle into hot coffee are eliminated leaving you with a perfectly balanced and smooth cup of iced coffee.
    Grind: Coarse

    WOW! What a Roast!

    • price
    • bold
    • full flavor

    Think this is my current favorite. Just opened a bag yesterday and love the heavy cocoa background and full flavor that has come from 3 French Roast brews so far. Bold, dark, but not bitter. YUM!

    dark suimatra 5 lbs recent order #127040


    1 Last year the product produced several brews that were so bitter that I had to

    discard. This was 3 orders ago.

    2 I reported the problem when I ordered the previous (2 orders ago) order

    and that order was excellent.

    3 This most recent order is just beginning to be used and with not a great

    amount of certainty I think that it is slightly inferior to the order in 2 above.

    hope this helps

    As advertised


    This coffee is advertised as a dark roast with X-tra Bold Body. It is just a bit too bold for me; it is not bitter. I think it is roasted too dark and takes away some of the nuances of the coffee; just my opinion. It is as advertised: Dark Roast and X-tra Bold Body.

    Very good coffee

    Excellent coffee for the price. Sumatran coffee is my favorite for its bold body and deep earthy flavors. It is just as good of coffee, If not even more flavorful imo, as what I buy from a local roasterie, only at roughly half the price shipped to my door. Big thumbs up!
