Bean Box Breakdown

What’s this cup made of? Earth, spice, and everything nice! Add some dark chocolate and a hint of mystery, and you’ve got this Sumatra: a classic Seattle riff on one of coffee’s oldest gems.

Fonte Coffee Story

This exotic and very difficult to source coffee offers a syrupy body, dense earthy aroma, and a great chocolate finish. Recommended for French press brewing.

"Dark, slightly bitter, full flavored, and a little earthy. Smell the dark chocolate when opening and grinding. Nothing earth shattering about this one. Wife and I enjoyed it, however nothing that stood out compared other Sumatra coffees we have had. " (4 out of 5)

"We brewed it in a French press like it was recommended in the bag and we preferred like that instead of an espresso americano that we usually brew" (4 out of 5)

"When I saw the coffees that came in this month's box, I didn't expect this one to be my favorite, but I ended up thinking it was excellent. " (4 out of 5)

"This is a very robust coffee. The Sumatra is deep and too bitter for me. I'm more of a light to medium roast fan. Beans are somewhat oil, but definitely a great choice if you love dark brew!" (3 out of 5)

"Mondays can be hard, this coffee makes it better. Fonte Coffee consistently hits it out of the park. This is great for a morning coffee on the go. Strong but not bitter. Definitely chocolate aftertaste which I enjoy." (5 out of 5)

"This coffee reminds me of early morning by the sea. I love the bold flavor. I used entire sample bag with a medium-fine grind in a pour-over with 3.5 cups of water." (4 out of 5)

"This is my third coffee and my favorite so far. I like be the bold taste and the hint of chocolate. Very smooth. Not bitter or overpowering. I served it to a group of friends and they all really enjoyed it too so this would be a good one for guests or gifts." (5 out of 5)

"Usually not a fan of sumatras, tried this in a French press and well we were im'pressed'! Still not sold on it as it's Sumatra, however it was not too dark and had a smoother earthy tone finish without all the bitter and the chocolate flavor was nice. " (3 out of 5)

"Sumatra coffee is one of my all time favorite coffees, no matter the brand. Anything (usually) with the name Sumatra in it really catches my interest. This does that as well. I love Fonte's Sumatra and would even purchase a full bag of it over and over. Great Coffee!" (5 out of 5)

"Very rich, strong coffee flavor with a bit of an afterbite. The aroma is underwhelming, but you can get a hint of chocolate in it. If you like carmel creamer, it brings the chocolate taste out and soothes the bitterness of the sumatra origin." (5 out of 5)

"This is absolutely delicious. I use a Melitta pourover cone and am curious as to how it would be in an Aeropress. I can definitely see ordering this one again. " (5 out of 5)
