I am pretty happy with this particular Starbucks Blend; the Sumatra which is Earthy and Herbal. When I first read "herbal" i thought, now why would I want coffee with herbal in the name, well what herbal does, I found out, is
Coffees in Sumatra are traditionally processed using a method called Giling Basah, or wet-hulling, which results in a coffee that leaves the farm with a much higher moisture content than other methods used more popularly worldwide.
The acidity in this coffee is low, but it has the herbal notes, which is described in the details on the bag of what this Indonesian coffee is as spicy, which is to balance the wet, dense, earthy richness.
I am not a "Coffee Conniseur by no means, but have learned a lot over the years, and I only enjoy this coffee with cream and sometimes with golden brown sugar or cane sugar. Cinnamon really influences the flavor's of this Sumatra coffee as well.
I will buy it again, as I like to have about 3 kinds of coffee in my house at one time, but this is not a daily coffee for me., more a desert coffee, or just a 1 to 2 cup kind of coffee. It can get boring and flat on the tongue it too many is drank.
This coffee got my husband hooked on Starbucks! He loves it! They don't seem to serve it at the Starbucks near my house, but when he tried it in London he said it was amazing. Thanks for a delicious brew!
This is my go to at home coffee! It is so rich and flavorful! This coffee has a kick and will definitely wake you up! It's also nice that you earn Bonus Stars each time you purchase! This coffee is on the pricier side but SO worth it! Once you try it, there's no going back! I definitely recommend!
I love the taste of this coffee, it's one of my favourites. The price could be a little better, it is rather pricey though. I have recently found other coffee's that are just as good for a lot less.
I love this coffee but find the price a bit too high. Many other great coffees on the market that are more affordable. Good for a treat or if I have a coupon.
My husband can not start the day without this coffee! He refused to drink any other. While visiting my sister one summer my husband purchased a bag to make at her house in the mornings. After we left I got a message from my sister telling her to thank my husband for getting her hooked on it. I am not a coffee drinker but I do love the smell of this coffee brewing each morning.
this coffee is the only reason that i can make it through the day! perfect for anyone that loves a good, strong cup of coffee
