notes were too much for me but the sweet notes sort of balanced that out. Nice cup!
Just ok - I didn't get much flavor from this, though I thought the description would be good: herbs, spice, caramel
. Would try it again though. (chemex
I am definitely not a coffee connoisseur (though I’m trying), but this coffee certainly lived up to the tasting notes. Very herbal
and tasty! Would be the type of coffee a new coffee drinker could enjoy. I've already ordered another bag.
Had this one as an espresso
and absolutely loved it! It's difficult to describe, but the flavour has a good subtle spice and it's so pleasant and delightful I couldn't get enough of it. Will definitely order this one again, and strongly recommend trying it out!
Brewed with v60 pour over
. Quite herbal
and tea like flavors. A little spice and notes of caramel
. Good but a little light for my taste.
I enjoyed every sip. Was a pleasant surprise for my first box.
I usually like medium roast
and this was a bit lighter roast, but it was smooth and delicious! It paired extremely well with the Bali Sea Salt Toffee chocolate
that came with the coffee & chocolate
I got this one in a sampler. I enjoyed the spiciness. I would probably rate this higher if I were a bigger fan of Sumatran coffees.
Very interesting - caramel
-y at first and gets more herbal
/tea tasting as it cools (used aeropress

Herbs and spices! caramel
, sweet, light bodied, good linger. Good for a sumatra (not my favorite type of coffee if I'm being honest!)
Fantastic - ginger
snaps dipped in bourbon. Very herbal
nose - almost as pungent as a chicken base. Sits fairly light on the tongue, but hangs around forever. A surprisingly wonderful balance of well toasted vanilla and caramel
, a lively (almost cherry
-like) acidity, and plenty of spice!
Very unique mouthfeel, definitely a must-have for this season. Would recommend to anyone! I made this coffee in a chemex
So delicious! I was surprised how much I loved it. This is maybe the best tasting coffee I have ever had.
This was my first Bean Box and I was really surprised at the quality of the bean. I love this coffee and will likely order it again.
This particular coffee tastes more like tea, in my household's opinion. On the one hand, some of us enjoy that quality, but on the other hand, some of the household did not like it for that reason. You might just consider this when deciding for your own personal taste.
I was happy with the sweet edge of the coffee, since I tend to drink it black from the french press
; it can be a little hard to take when coffees are bitter! Sumatra always seems to have the perfect combination of strength and smoothness.
Freshly brewed the coffee packs some pleasant herbal
spiciness with subtle light notes of concord grape; it's a gift to the ol' olfactory system! The coffee drinks light, tea-like in body and I was able to pull out some citrus
acidity with a some tobacco
notes and a nice spice-drop like finish.
A great herbal
Coffee! You will enjoy this wonderful blend with every sip you take!
I am not a huge Sumatra fan but this is a very tasty coffee. I would most certainly drinking it again. However, it is not a coffee that I would personal choose over other origins at the same price
Delicious coffee with caramel
finsh and perfect balance with or without cream and sugar. Not too bitter not too strong. I thoroughly enjoyed this coffee.
Vashon always seems to make consistently good coffee, and this on is no exception. The herbal
and spice notes really come through.
A very smooth coffee with a nice caramel
taste. I brewed it with a pour over
and would recommend this coffee.
Brewed in french press
4-5 minutes. Very smooth with caramel
flavor. Excellent lighter roast coffee. The best description is again very smooth with very little acidity or the wine
flavor often associated with light a roast.
Excellent! I love the caramel
taste. I would recommend trying this coffee.
A delicious coffee! Firstly, the beans smell fantastic--the same herbal
/spices notes that the coffee tastes of. It is light with sweet undertones & aftertaste, but the coffee itself is not sweet. The flavor reminds me of tea and is one of the most distinctive coffees I've tried. Made with a moka pot
This one tasted pretty dark. I had to add more sugar than I normally do.
Ordered this brew on a whim, outside of our normal subscription and we ended up really enjoying this light roast
sumatra. We mostly brewed this roast in our french press
but it was also delicious in our aeropress
Another one I loved from my wife’s sampler. One of the best coffees I’ve had. Smooth like black tea but not bitter
Another one of my favorites! Such a bright coffee and seeet flavor I loved it so much!
A very good roast, light and slightly spicy. Will be trying other roasts by Vashon soon.
A little bland and the flavor did come through as well as others we have tried, but it was OK to drink black.
I really enjoyed this Sumatra. I don't drink it much since I now prefer lighter roasts. When drinking dark roast
s, Sumatra was a favorite. A welcomed respite
Out of all the samplers, this one was my favorite. Partially... because I pictured Vashon Island while drinking it. I'm not a trained coffee-expert but this one felt more home-y to me or subtle. Like, I wasn't distracted by the distinctness of hte coffee.
Notes of glorious caramel
make this coffee rich and delicious. This is one of my boyfriend's favorites!
