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.

Nice Flavor Sumatra is exactly as the company describes it. Very nice and full bodied. March 1, 2015
Good, fast and easy. 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! February 21, 2015
My go-to cup of Java 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. February 16, 2015
Perfect when brewed properly I really enjoy dark, bold coffee, but I think the recommendation of 2 Tbs per 6 oz is crazy! It makes it so dark and bitter; it's no good. However, I brew 5 cups of coffee for myself every morning and use 4 Tbs of coffee grounds, and it's perfect! I drink it with a splash of half and half. February 11, 2015
Expire date is too close.. I ordered at 20 Jan. When I received product, fresh expire date is 14 Mar 15. The date is too short to enjoy bean. Even, I ordered 8 coffees. Among them 3 coffee expire dates are May, Apr. February 1, 2015

Tie for favorite with Komodo

By Peggy

from El Paso

Comments about Starbucks® Sumatra, Whole Bean:

This is one of my two favorite coffees from Starbucks and is a tie with Komodo Dragon. This is coffee at its best, strong and bold with rich coffee flavor. I don't agree that it has a spicy, dried herbs or earth (do they eat dirt?)flavor; just a wonderful wake-you-up coffee.

Comments about Starbucks® Sumatra, Whole Bean:

Really, I don't think many coffees surpass this one. Great flavors, bold but smooth. Absolutely, live this in drip, K-cup, or French pot.
