"I really enjoyed this Sumatra. I don't drink it much since I now prefer lighter roasts. When drinking dark roasts, Sumatra was a favorite. A welcomed respite " (4 out of 5)

"Out of all the samplers, this one was my favorite. Partially... because I pictured Vashon Island while drinking it. I'm not a trained coffee-expert but this one felt more home-y to me or subtle. Like, I wasn't distracted by the distinctness of hte coffee. " (5 out of 5)
