"We loved this coffee! We are partial to Sumatra coffees and this one did not disappoint. Rich, perfectly roasted, just the thing for a morning pick me up. "
"Darker side of medium roast
. Not sure if I catch the cucumber but there is a bright note in there that could be it. Good cup"
"This wasn't too bad. Would try it again. I liked the little note of cucumber and it was rich."
"This was okay but I didn’t get any cucumber. Middle of the road blend. Nothing special. "
"Not a bad blend. You can taste the chocolate
and cedar notes but the spice I taste none of. "
"Not one of my favorites. I did not enjoy it as much as I did the Holiday Blend. I am finding that my favorite beans seem to be the ones with shiny oily bean. "
"Darker coffee, can't taste the cucumber but definitely enjoy the earthiness in this one."
"Favorite on a diet barely any sweetener needed love love love"
"Subtle cucumber smell and taste. Nice unique flavor."
"3.5 to 4 - not getting much cuke but that's ok. Has a refreshing end taste. (Made with chemex
"Loved the hint of chocolate
in this one. Subtle but there."
"Too dark of roast to be considered a medium. I did not notice the cucumber finish- but maybe the dark chocolate
"This was a very solid roast. I enjoy beans with chocolate
undertones and that stood out in this blend. "
"A relaxing, full featured coffee that refreshes you on a summer morning."
"Great darker blend. Wonderful in a french press
. Warm cholately notes, barely acidic. Will definitely buy again. "
"Didn't taste the cucumber on this one, but I still loved it! Definite earthy and chocolate
"It's definitely a good coffee (brewed as an espresso
) and I like the slight spice notes to it."
"Not a lot of heavy or distinct taste to this one but one of the best cups of coffee I’ve had. Light earthy with faint cucumber crisp taste. Mellow chocolate
, with easy to drink caramel
tones. Not acidic, very easy on the stomach "
"I thought this was really great. Smooth, earthy taste, seemed mellow on flavors but was easy to drink."
"Brewed in feench press. Good medium roast coffee, that definitely has an earthy taste. Smooth overall with mild acidity. May taste better run through a filter, but pleasant coffee with decent finish."
"This is I think the only one I've gotten that I didn't really care for."
"Delicious! I never tried this with one of those caramel
cookies in the photo, but I bet it would be a great combo. This coffee was earthy, yet silky. I tried it as an espresso
and loved it!"
"This is an interesting one - I really do taste a little bit of fresh, crisp cucumber along with a nice chocolate
flavor (brewed in an aeropress
"This was my favorite in this shipment. Very smooth tasting and all around a really good coffee."
"I wanted a Sumatra that didn't have too much char, and this delivered wonderfully!"
"I didn't taste the chocolate
or cucumber. Wasnt anything special to me. I put a tsp sugar free hazelnut
in it. "
"I didn't enjoy this a much as I had hoped based on other reviews. It's middle of the road to me, although many others love this bled so maybe I'm just off. "
"Good but I actually found it acidic. "
"Thought it was decent and the flavor was earthy and smooth. "
"Great full-bodied medium-dark coffee. Love the chocolate
flavor. Got my husband the non-coffee drinker to give it a try and now he is a dedicated coffee drinker. Will order again."
"I sampled this coffee after brewing via the 4 minute french press
method with water preheated to 205. This coffee was good but not for me. Tea like. The floral
notes at the end are really bold.Big on cedar and spiciness this bold in a cup. To me that was all that was bold."
"I give this a 5 bean! For it's uniqueness in combination, definitely low in acidity, light and smooth. Great quality as always. :)"
"Not a fan in general of Sumatran coffee, but I wanted to try this one anyway - herbal
/woody flavors were just too prominent for my taste. Had a faint hint of chocolate
. Preparation: Hario v60
"Don't like Sumatra, but this was good. Mad it in Moka pot with a little bit of milk. Who is fan of Sumatra need to try this. It is really unusual! "
"I did pick up on the cucumber which was a very strange, refreshing taste. "
"This is not for everyone & I did not find it to be bad but it was not a coffee I will re-order. It is best brewed in a french press
or as espresso
"Nice complexity and richness in the flavor, though it soured quickly as it cooled."
"Nice bold flavor, while still resulting in a smooth cup. Really enjoyed this one!"
"Yum! Loved the notes of chocolate
. Was hesitant about the cucumber but didn’t taste it which was good. This is a medium/dark roast
. So good!"
"This one has a vegetal aroma and a decently bold flavor. I enjoyed it in a pour over
"Surprised we liked this since we typically don’t like Sumatra. "
"When I read this was have cucumber flavor to it, I wasn't sure what to expect. However, the mixture of chocolate
and cucumber was a pleasant surprise. I was impressed!"
"I was very intrigued by the mention of cucumber tasting notes, but when I brewed it up I didn't notice them in mine. Was a nice coffee with clean finish. "
"Was real fond of this one, just tasted a little muddy to me. Used a Bee House pour over
"Any coffee with chocolate
notes can't be bad. Especially with a breakfast pastry. This was a great selection"
"I bought this as a present for my boyfriend and he LOVED it. At first we weren't sure how well chocolate
and cucumber would go together but it was delicious and refreshing."
"Brewed this "Sumatra Mandheling" in our french press
for a rich yet smooth chocolate
morning cup. My husband liked the earthiness of this coffee & the darker roast flavor. We didn't quite pick up on the cucumber."
