I am usually high on really good Sumatran coffee, however this particular batch from Kalani could have been fresher. Quick shipping, decent price, and certainly 10 times better than Grocery Outlet's own brand of Sumatran. There are a lot of Sumatran roasters that simply roast beyond medium, which should NEVER be the case of beans from this country. Thank goodness Kalani roasted theirs correctly. Kalani did not specify which part of Sumatra the beans came from and my favorite is Mandheling. Based on the flavor of this bag, they were definitely from Sumatra island. I will buy again, based on price/value, but freshness was an issue this time. Peets Coffee makes a very good Mandheling Sumatran in a so called "aged roast", but way over priced. Anyway, many more roasters out there that can ship so I will try more this month. The very best so far in my life has been from Truckee California at a shop called Truckee Express, which no longer exists I guess.

Sumatra is always a flavorful medium brew. I'm very satisfied with the quality of Kalani coffee and custom grinding.
We have been Kalani customers for many years, and their product is consistently excellent.
We have never found better.
Could be darker? And how about Maui moka
