Hear hear: our newest, spicy Indonesian is so good, we’ve awarded it our “Sumatra Cum Laude”! Sumatra Mandheling Grade 1, from Fundamental Coffee Company, is a rich, medium-dark roast with a syrupy body and all the classic, beloved Indonesian flavors: notes of thai basil add a hint of fresh, herbal sweetness, balanced with savory notes of grilled bell pepper and garam masala spice. The low-acid, earthy profile makes this cup a natural for the season, when you want a morning cup to not just sip, but to sink into.

Didn't expect to like this one and my expectations were pretty much met. I just didn't like the flavor combos for a cup of coffee. Maybe in tea I would have enjoyed such a weird combo, but not my coffee. I tasted the bell pepper and the basil for sure, had a deep dark flavor for being a medium roast. It was not my cup of tea, or coffee for that matter.

I received a sample of this with a sample/starter pack and didn’t really care for it. For a medium roast it was darker than I would have liked/preferred (the beans were a little oily) and to me more of a medium-dark roast. For reference, I prefer a medium or light-medium roast.

Wasn't a real fan of this one. I actually held off trying this one right away as the listed flavors didn't appeal to me for a morning cup of coffee. It wasn't horrid, but wasn't for me. You could smell the bell pepper when grinding, brewing and drinking. Wasn't a fan of the spices. Maybe for other people, just not me. Was a mild non acidic coffee.

Fresh yet deep flavor, unique but not my favorite in the bunch but that's just my preference for more "basic" flavors.

Very nice! Exactly the unique Sumatran fresh/spiced/woody flavor I wanted in time for fall

I didn't really know what to expect with the flavor profile listed on the bag when I brewed this cup. This blend was a pleasant surprise! I could definitely taste the notes of bell pepper. They weren't overpowering, and lent the cup a bit of sweetness. I could also taste "freshness", which I'm assuming was from the notes of Thai basil.
