Tasting Notes

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.

About Green Mountain 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.

Notes From Origin

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:

      I had read about how this coffee had changed, and I thought well, it was for the better since it has been GREAT, very flavorful, deep and rich with distinctive taste. I've been buying it at the grocery store since it is readily available there...but my most recent grocery store purchase revealed a change in packaging -- the K-cup is different looking....Uh-Oh.
      It has now LOST everything that made this coffee special. It's weak, tastes like a basic nothing coffee....What happened? I had JUST put it on my membership order....I'll give it ONE chance then it's out of my life. With many other choices being bland and lacking body, I wonder if Starbucks has a more flavorful, rich and full K-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.

          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.

            Tully's French Roast a good new friend!

            from Wilmington,DE

            Comments about Green Mountain Coffee K-Cup FTO Sumatran Reserve Extra Bold:

            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.

                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.

                      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.
