"Not sure I fully remember this bean, seems like it was so so, maybe a bit too plain." (3 out of 5)
"A very nice cup of coffee. It reminds me of a coffee that is perked over a campfire on a brisk morning " (4 out of 5)
"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!" (3 out of 5)
"The nutty 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. " (4 out of 5)
"Nutty, earthy, spicy. Smoky sumatra, a nice contrast cup compared to the other coffees this month, but not our favorite." (3 out of 5)
"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." (3 out of 5)
"Good full bodied coffee. Brewed in French press, smooth with little to no acidic aftertaste. Nice dark roast coffee." (4 out of 5)
"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." (2 out of 5)
"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. " (4 out of 5)
"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." (2 out of 5)
"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" (3 out of 5)
"GREAT coffee. This is without a doubt a coffee you can drink every morning, smooth, nutty, spicy. It's just delicious. " (4 out of 5)
"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." (2 out of 5)
