Starbucks Reserve® Sun-Dried Sumatra


$18.00
8 oz
Spicy and full-bodied with complex flavors of rhubarb jam and tarragon.
Availability:  This item is not available.

This is our first sun-dried Sumatra and it comes from the Wahana Estate.

Until now, we've never offered a sun-dried coffee from Sumatra – a country renowned more for its semi-washed coffees – where a determined generation of farmers is challenging tradition to coax bold, unexpected flavors from the beans. Native to Sumatra, this Rasuna varietal is cultivated on the Wahana Estate, where it matures slowly in the shade of native trees. Once ripe, the cherries are handpicked and laid out in the sun to dry with the pulp on, infusing each bean with the fruits natural sweetness.

This Starbucks Reserve® coffee is available only at select times and stores, so be sure to enjoy it when you can.

Tasting Notes Spice & Dried Fruit

Region asia-pacific

Producer:  Wahana Estate

Elevation:  1,300 - 1,500 meters

The Wahana Estate sits in the mountains surrounding Lake Toba, Indonesia's largest lake and the largest volcanic crater lake in the world. Growing at 1,300 – 1,500 m above sea level, the Rasuna coffee trees in Wahana Estate are shaded by native trees to prevent direct sunlight and allow coffee trees to mature more slowly.

Coffee with sophistcation!

Comments about Starbucks Reserve® Sun-Dried Sumatra:

This coffe has has a dark rich taste with a subltly complex flavor. Compared with the Regular Sumatran beans, the sun dried beans maintain a much richer and darker flavor. Suprisingly smooth with the rich darkness associated with hand cured coffees that I have had in many different countries throughout Eastern Europe, Asia, So Asia and Oceania.

Amazing! Unlike any coffee I have ever had.

Comments about Starbucks Reserve® Sun-Dried Sumatra:

This is a very unique coffee. As soon as I opened the bag I got the aroma of fruit. Typically, a Sumatran coffee will hit you with a spicy aroma. That's your first clue you are in for something special.

In the cup the coffee is definitely fruity. I agree with the tasting notes that state "dried fruits". That is spot on. That fruitiness is very enjoyable. Then, the coffee finishes with a hint of spiciness (think cinnamon, not black pepper). Honestly, it's just the right amount of spiciness.

Something else I noticed about this coffee is that there is no bitterness. That helps to make this coffee very drinkable without any added cream or sugar. This coffee is unlike anything you have every tried before from Sumatra.

I brewed this coffee in a French press and the results were great. I used 2 tbsp of coarsely ground coffee for every 6 oz. of water. I used filtered, bottled water just off a boil (195-205 degrees). I steeped my coffee in the press for 4 minutes and the result was an amazing cup of coffee.

Give this coffee a try. You will not be disappointed.

Great flavor with a body to hold it.

By peter13

from Corvallis, OR, USA

Comments about Starbucks Reserve® Sun-Dried Sumatra:

When I smell this coffee, the first thing that hits my nose is that amazing aroma. I grabbed notes from that drying process that are distinct and herbaly. I paired this coffee with my morning oatmeal, and the flavors of the dried fruit, nuts, and the brown sugar made everything come to life even more. I love this coffee and it's full body with an incredible finish and great mouthfeel. Quite an experience.

Great tasting coffee

By vietnamvet48

Comments about Starbucks Reserve® Sun-Dried Sumatra:

I have tried many sumatra whole beans from all over and this Sun-Dried Sumatra bean is the best. Great smell when it is being brewed in my french press. One cup is all I need. I love the full bodied flavor.

Comments about Starbucks Reserve® Sun-Dried Sumatra:

The jam notes described are accurate. I love the aroma and taste of this coffee. It reminds me strawberries. It's great with toast & jam and berries. I've purchased it a few times already and will continue to restock until it's no longer available. I love this coffee!

This was a Christmas gift to my sister's family, of which my two nephews are barristas at different coffee shops in MN. Everyone raved and thoroughly enjoyed the complex and fresh flavors of the beans.

Quite Good as long as you dont have the Harrar to compare

By CoffeeCrazed

Comments about Starbucks Reserve® Sun-Dried Sumatra:

I rank this Sun Dried 2nd out of all the Sun dried reserve coffee they have released this year. Has a darker roast that the other 2 (Harrar, & Sidamo) which works for me. Worth buying a couple bags to have when you want something different and unique. I would try it and buy it over the Sidamo if that helps anyone. Shoud be the reverse I woud have thought

A friend of mine in Seatlle sent me 1/2 # of this & I liked it so much I had to buy more of it. Sadly, I can't buy it at either of the Portland, ME stores so ordered it online. Love it!

Amazing!

By StarbucksQueen75

from Pingree Grove, IL

Comments about Starbucks Reserve® Sun-Dried Sumatra:

As a regular Sumatra drinker, this was truly a treat! I didn't think you could perfect the already wonderful Sumatra, but I stand corrected. This bean brews a sweetly fragrant & fruity tasting coffee that is in a word, AMAZING! Well worth the money for this reserve. My husband and I save this for our weekend brew so we can linger over the cup and savor the flavors! Thank you Starbucks for bringing us this wonderful treat! We will definitely order again!
