For exotic coffee destinations, Sumatra is near the top of the list. Like the folks that live there, Sumatran coffees show tremendous character and this Sumatran Reserve Extra Bold Coffee is no exception. The roast is deliciously dark and deep providing a sweetness of brown sugar and spice.
When I first tasted this Sumatran coffee, I was pleasantly surprised. It’s smooth, balanced and not bitter at all. I find it very pleasing and satisfying in the morning and afternoon.
Simply the best!
Wow! I've tried several different BOLD coffees from Green Mountain Coffee and this is my favorite so far, although Dark Magic, Espresso blend, and Double Black Diamond are all exceptional BOLD coffees in my opinion. It has a great aroma and wonderful chocolate undertones! It will definitely get you going in the morning too if you're looking for a great pick me up. Highly recommended!
Top Three Bolds
I love bold coffee, and have found the Keurig makes mild coffee, so I have tried every bold they have in K-Cups, and this is one of my three favorites. Smooth, unique flavor, and really strong. Love it!
Finally - a bold coffee I can go for!
This is by far the best extra bold coffee! I've tried the other Green Mountain extra bold varieties (Espresso Blend & Dark Magic). They're just not bold enough. At the 6oz cup size, it's not enough coffee; and at the 8oz, it becomes watery. And then especially when you add some creamer in there - add a drop of creamer in there, and it's already too light/milky! And even when drinking it black, it doesn't have much intense flavor either. I've also tried the extra bold variety pack from Coffee People such as Jet Fuel, Wake-up call, Black Tiger and Organic. These are much better. At least when you drink it black in the 8 oz cup size, it's not watery and still tastes bold. Out of these I think the Organic variety is the best. But going back to my initial review of the Sumatran, it's BOLD, dark, smooth, INTENSE! If you like strong, bold coffee like Starbucks (w/out the burnt taste) this is the coffee for you!
