Sumatra is one of the world's more exotic coffee destinations ... and peopled by folks of great character. Sumatran coffees tend to show tremendous character, too, and ours is no exception.
We've updated our roast for the K-Cup version of this coffee ... Our roast is now deep and deliciously dark, offering a sweet palate of brown sugar and spice notes. Look for lots of body in this big, bold K-Cup coffee.
A great tasting cup of coffee can give you a whole new perspective. It's a moment to pause, reflect, and reprioritize. That moment is what inspires us to make coffee that benefits everyone it touches. From carefully sourcing and roasting the highest quality beans, to supporting small farms and protecting the environment, we focus on what's important.
That's why we at Green Mountain Coffee® believe a good cup of coffee can change your day... but a great cup of coffee can help change the world.
Beans from Sumatra have always been highly prized not only because of their full flavor, but also because of their distinct appearance. Sumatran coffee beans, when green, are often asymmetrical in shape and have a deep aquamarine tint. Beginning in the 18th century when the popularity of Sumatran coffee rose significantly, the unique shape and hue helped European merchants recognize authentic Sumatran coffee beans.
However, Sumatran coffee’s distinct appearance isn’t the only factor contributing to the coffee’s uniqueness. The unusual drying techniques employed by Sumatran coffee farmers also contribute to the coffee’s distinctiveness. These techniques involve an extended period of the coffee bean’s exposure to the pulp of the berry after the berry has been harvested — a process which is believed to produce deeper tones in the brewed coffee.
Besides the exquisite flavor, the cooperative that grows this coffee has many reasons to be proud of their beans. Known as the Gayo Organic Farmers Association, this co-op grows 100 percent organic beans. With the funds from their coffee sales, this community of growers has started a project to bring safe drinking water to more than 1,500 people. The cooperative has also saved funds to help farmers with the reconstruction of their homes, many of which were destroyed in the war, and to aid in the construction of two new schools. This coffee has truly delightful qualities in its origin as well as in the cup.

Comments about Green Mountain Coffee K-Cup FTO Sumatran Reserve Extra Bold:
Comparable to Starbucks Sumatra roast coffee. I prefer this because it's USDA organic and fair trade certified. This is not a coffee that everyone will enjoy. My preference is strong and bold flavored coffee. I'm happy it's in the cupboard for my hubby and I, but a medium roast is a safer crowd pleaser.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Went on a trip and they had this available in room. We actually brought the GM Breakfast Blend but this won me over. Purchased it when we got back home.

About Me Average Joe
We have been using this product for many years but lately the formulation or beans selected/roasted seems to be weaker than it use to be. The aroma seems to have also changed. I am now looking for a replacement for this, perhaps the Barista Prime Italian Roast.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I use 2 k-cups in one mug pushing the small cup button both times
Tully's French Roast a good new friend!
The formula has changed from Bold to a weaker Medium blend with no aroma on this GM Sumatran. I have since found a substitute which is Dark,Bold and has great aroma: Tullys French Roast.

If you prefer a cup of coffee that's stronger than Dunkin Donuts, but not as strong as Starbucks, this is the blend for you!

Coffee changed with the new packaging
from Hartsville, PA
I have been receiving this coffee on auto-delivery for several years and find that with each package change the coffee is not as good; weakened flavor. This last change has me looking for something else. I had to change the Keurig water amount all the way down to a 6 oz cup. My family and I are very disappointed. I would no longer recommend this coffee.

So long old friend!
After enjoying this coffee for years, The past shipments of Sumatran Reserve (K-Cup) have been a waste of money. The formula has changed. It is a weak watery and unpleasant taste. It used to be a dark bold rich coffee I could get two brews out of.I am in search of a new Extra Bold. My next favorite, Double Black Diamond, also has changed to a weak coffee according to recent reviews. Perhaps it affects all Green Mountain Coffees. It seems Jet Fuel may be ok at the moment to take a chance with. Green Mountain needs to change description of Sumatran from Extra Bold to weak or mild when they change the formulas.

About Me Chef
The last batch I received is different; it has a very strong tobacco flavor and the aroma smells like burnt coffee. I have used this coffee for years, but I will need to find another for my next shipping. The new labels are not an asset to your product; they are difficult to determine one flavor from another and they lack sophistication.
