Like the lush Indonesian island of its origin, this spicy coffee stands alone.

Full-bodied with a smooth mouthfeel, lingering flavors of dried herbs and fresh earth, and almost no acidity. Our roasters love transforming these unpredictable beans from dark coral green to tiger-orange to a rich, oily mahogany, revealing bold flavors that many us of us can’t live without. Coffee from Sumatra is the foundation of our most treasured blends, and something we’ve been honored to share with you for four decades.

A Better Cup

We're committed to ethically sourcing and roasting the highest-quality arabica coffee in the world. When we buy coffee this way, it fosters a better future for farmers, and a more stable climate for the planet. It also helps create a long-term supply of the high-quality beans we've been carefully blending, roasting and packing fresh for more than 40 years.

Recipe for great coffee

  1. Use cold, filtered water and a clean machine.
  2. Grind beans just before brewing:
    • Coarse for coffee press
    • Medium for automatic drip
  3. Measure 2 tbsp (10 g) ground coffee for every 6 fl oz (180 ml) water.

To help preserve that fresh flavor, keep this bag sealed tight in a cabinet (not in the refrigerator) and brew within a week of opening.

Each coffee requires slightly different amounts of time and temperature during the roasting process to create a cup at its peak of aroma, acidity, body and flavor. We classify our coffees in three roast profiles so you can easily find your desired flavor and intensity.

  • Blonde: Blonde-roasted coffees have a shorter roast time, lighter body and mellow flavors.
  • Medium: Medium-roasted coffees are balanced with smooth and rich flavors.
  • Dark: Dark-roasted coffees feature a fuller body and robust, bold flavors.

I primarily shop online to take advantage of significant savings per pound of Sumatra--my husband's favorite! I don't even have to leave the couch. Place my order quickly and the order is delivered to my front door pronto! Easy peasey!

I've been hooked on Starbucks Sumatra whole bean coffee for years. When I drink coffee, I want and need a bold taste, & body. Sumatra delivers. When I can I like to drink Sumatra Reserve.

This Sumatra is roasted too dark

By yogalover

from Miami, FL, USA

See all my reviews

Comments about Starbucks® Sumatra, Whole Bean:

I purchased this coffee for the family to drink every morning. Myself I enjoy dark roasted but my regular is Starbuck's House Blend or Veranda because my family usually leans towards lighter roasts. When I brewed Starbucks Sumatra it smelled great but when I tasted it let's just say it just tasted burnt. My acid reflux
kicked it right up, that's how over roasted this coffee is. The rest of the coffee lovers in my family couldn't stomach this coffee and they love coffee! I couldn't get them to try it again the next day, so I got stuck trying to
drink it myself. I watered it down, added less coffee grounds per 6 oz. Nothing worked I had to finally give up and throw the coffee out.

Great Dark Roast

By Michael1

from Baltimore, MD, USA

Comments about Starbucks® Sumatra, Whole Bean:

Sumatra is one of Starbucks best dark roasts. Full bodied, earthy taste, perfect for mornings or whenever I need a lift. I have been buying this coffee by the pound for years and plan to continue. I do find that differences in the taste/texture between the individual pound packages.
