Bean Box Breakdown

So rich and full-bodied, you'd swear it was a dark roast: that's the magic of Sumatra! It doesn't take a lot to transform these beans into a deeply complex brew, and this perfectly-developed roast reveals the cup's fantastic earthy nature. Woodsy notes of dark chocolate dominate the palate, with a hint of red-wine tannins that catch you right at the end. Just like the Springtime, it's meant to be savored.

Vashon Island Coffee Roasterie Story

"More of a dark roast, I could taste a wine/fruity taste that was pretty strong. I used my self grinding coffee maker- and next time I would try it as a pourover- may taste a little more mellow."

"Enjoyed his mild roast. The cocoa definitely comes through. Will order again to try and pick up the hint of wine. "

"Very smooth and well-balanced roast. It complemented my morning and breakfast well. While I did not notice hints of red wine, I found it to be flavorful with a great finish."

"My favorite of the four coffees I received. Very strong chocolate and nutty flavor to it. Perfect in a french press. "

"Brewed with french press and noticed hints of cherry. It drank like a dark roast in the french press which my wife and I enjoyed, due to our tend to lean towards darker coffees anyway. "

"This coffee had an interesting flavor. The hoppy notes were definitely unique. Made for a good hearty feeling cup of morning coffee but not sure it is going to be one that I reach for consistently. "

"in the french press, this brews up as a dark coffee with very light hints of cherry, some smokiness and very smooth. i like!"

"i really enjoyed the earthy notes and of course the dark chocolate!"

"Well grounded flavor, medium body, sweet and rich. The nice thick mouthfeel and a nice bittersweet flavor are strongly reminiscent of hot chocolate."

"Wow, never tasted a coffee like this, nor smell one. I love the woodsy smell. Really had a taste of red wine in it, which was complimented wonderfully by the cocoa notes and earthiness. Will definitely buy again. Brewed french press with two filter screens."

"Like this roast a lot! Obviously earthy, chocolatey goodness in this medium roast! Drank with a splash of cream and after the first sip, immediately wanted another! Highly recommend!"
