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

This Sumatran roast shines with a medium roast profile, while still maintaining full, complex, and rich flavors. Chocolate notes, well balanced, a hint of sweetness, delicious with cream and Merlot-like. Only available while the beans last!

"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!"
