Sumatra is one of my go-to types and this one is a great intro to the type.
Not bad but nothing life changing either. Earthy cup of coffee
This was a good coffee, made with a drip machine, though it didn't stand out as one of my favorites.
I'm not normally a fan of Sumatra, but this was nice. A sweet aroma, with a slightly bright, spicey taste and a smokey finish. It has a medium mouth feel and isn't too bitter. Drank black from french press
This was a great coffee. I really enjoyed it in the afternoon when I needed an extra kick.
A well balance sumatra, which is my fav variety. It pairs well with breakfast or dinner, and as a pour over
My wife and I received a 12 month sampler prescription and have been very impressed by every coffee we have received from Lighthouse Roasters. We have yet to be disappointed and this coffee lived up to our expectations. Brewed with french press
Very rich, smooth, sweet, but not in any way overwhelming--the spice notes are perfectly balanced. Really nice cup.
Quite enjoyable overall but not a stand out. Reminds me of a coffee shop in the village I always liked. I'm not disappointed by any means, it isn't too acidic or bitter and takes the french press

Not for the faint of heart. This coffee was a bit too much even when toned down with some cream. Had a very bitter finish, and probably wouldn't order again. We were looking for something different, this just strayed too far off our traditional likes.
Not bad, but far from a favorite. The earthy tones come out, but I was disappointed to not really find the advertised spice..
I enjoyed this one iced
and hot. It's nutty
, earthy and spicy. Fairly mild and not very acidic.
I was excited to try Lighthouse Roasters but this coffee tasted almost burned..
This lasted almost 2 weeks, which is normal in my house. Tastes great
Not sure I fully remember this bean, seems like it was so so, maybe a bit too plain.
A very nice cup of coffee. It reminds me of a coffee that is perked over a campfire on a brisk morning
Really earthy, not a huge amount of flavor. If you like dark but don't like the burnt taste, this might be your cup of coffee!
flavors of this coffee came through really well which I enjoy. Nothing was particularly special about it but made for a good morning cup overall.
, earthy, spicy. smoky
sumatra, a nice contrast cup compared to the other coffees this month, but not our favorite.
Loved this coming out of a Kalita Wave 185. smoky
and syrupy indeed without being charred or bitter, 100%. Brewing this as pour over
around 202 degrees and using a touch more water ratio, 24g beans to 390ml water helped. Would buy a bag of this, for sure.
I was expecting a thick, dreamy coffee and was not let down. That being said, I can only recommend the strong earthy tones for the strongest of souls who like their coffee with a side of dirt. Delicious dirt, but only for the hardiest of hearts.
Good full bodied coffee. Brewed in french press
, smooth with little to no acidic aftertaste. Nice dark roast
This is a great cup of dark roast
coffee. The simple earthy flavors make it easy to drink and pair with or without creamer. Although dark roast
s are not usually my favorite, I love to try them because of coffee just like this one, a nice bold flavor that is easy to drink, with subtle flavors.
I got this as a sampler. It was too dark for me. It started out with an earthy flavor, but just ended up leaving a bitter aftertaste in my mouth. I would not order this again.
If you like dark roast
without any fruit backtones this is the coffee for you. It is like roasted nuts with a hint of cocoa
. I added a touch of cream to even out the flavors and it was great.
As a fan of bold, smoky
flavors I had high hopes for the Mandhaling, but was disappointed by it’s acrid, burned the flavor which overwhelmed the other notes. The freshly ground beans did smell great. If you’re a fan of coffee in the spectrum of Starbucks’ darkest roast, this is your jam.
Those who like a smooth and simple dark roast
will appreciate this. Smokey, but not burnt. Elements of a slightly creamy nut flavor prevail, though the profile isn't incredibly complex when compared to light beans. I favor light - med beans; this is slightly too one dimensional for my liking. 3.4/5
GREAT coffee. This is without a doubt a coffee you can drink every morning, smooth, nutty
, spicy. It's just delicious.
This coffee had an acrid flavor and almost seemed "burnt." This acridness overwhelmed whatever flavor was in the actual beans. Not the worst I've had, but definitely not the best.
