A staple of coffee shops throughout the world, Sumatra has an earthy, chocolaty flavor and is considered to be among the finest beans available. Hailing from the Indonesian island of Sumatra, this varietal is ideal as a dessert coffee or for those who want to avoid high-acid brews. Featuring a dry, slightly smoky finish and sweet aroma, these full-flavored beans will leave you wanting more.
- “A great coffee. Full of flavor and smooth. My favorite although I jump around on other ones because I like trying different coffees. Service is excellent and always get my order fast.”
- “It has a smooth taste and doesn't bother my stomach. I usually get a bag of this with every order. ”
- “Coffee Bean Direct offers a "Dark Sumatra Mandheling" and they offer this, which, according to their little chart, should be a fairly light roast. It was decidedly DARK, without the oil re-absorption a lighter than full city roast should have. Either they have a screwy idea of what roast levels are, or they have poor quality control in packaging and shipping. Either way, it is a HUGE disappointment. I have had actual near-city roasted Sumatran and it is sublime.”
