"This particular coffee tastes more like tea, in my household's opinion. On the one hand, some of us enjoy that quality, but on the other hand, some of the household did not like it for that reason. You might just consider this when deciding for your own personal taste." (4 out of 5)

"I was happy with the sweet edge of the coffee, since I tend to drink it black from the French press; it can be a little hard to take when coffees are bitter! Sumatra always seems to have the perfect combination of strength and smoothness." (4 out of 5)

"Freshly brewed the coffee packs some pleasant herbal spiciness with subtle light notes of concord grape; it's a gift to the ol' olfactory system! The coffee drinks light, tea-like in body and I was able to pull out some citrus acidity with a some tobacco notes and a nice spice-drop like finish." (4 out of 5)

"Brewed in French press 4-5 minutes. Very smooth with caramel flavor. Excellent lighter roast coffee. The best description is again very smooth with very little acidity or the wine or fruity flavor often associated with light a roast. " (5 out of 5)

"A delicious coffee! Firstly, the beans smell fantastic--the same herbal/spices notes that the coffee tastes of. It is light with sweet undertones & aftertaste, but the coffee itself is not sweet. The flavor reminds me of tea and is one of the most distinctive coffees I've tried. Made with a moka pot" (5 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)
