Sumatra Dark

(31 customer reviews)

$19.00

Premium • Wild • Sharp

These beans come from Northern Sumatra and have a hidden sweetness that is sometimes overshadowed by the earthiness or smokiness of the roast. If you are looking for something unique, these beans will keep you guessing.

Clear

The raw Sumatran beans tend to be a bit more bluish in color due to the lack of iron in the soil.

  1. Outstanding!

    Rozelle

    Henry’s (and son’s) coffee is much better than Peets or any other I’ve had. And I’ve been their customer for decades. Excellent coffee and delivery is always fast..almost faster than waiting in line at Peets!

  2. Great Coffee!

    Dayna (verified owner)

    I love Henry’s coffee. I have tried several flavors, all dark because that is my favorite. I have not been disappointed in any of them. Thank you!

  3. Good coffee but not enough chocolate for me

    Mary Ann Wolkomie (verified owner)

    I really prefer a more chocolatey brew. This one is good, but I prefer more cocoa overtones. Just my taste buds I guess.

    Sumatra dark is everything you want in a dark roast. Smooth/no bitterness, strong, flavorful. Best Sumatra on the market.

  8. Sumatra is the BEST

    LKClayton (verified owner)

    Rich, dark and delicious. Henry’s French Roast has been my favorite of the varieties I’ve tried but now it may be Sumatra. A bit richer and smoother, in my opinion. Wonderful coffee.

  9. Good for espressos

    Steve

    For each roast and flavor, I consider whether its best for a French press, espresso machine, or even Armenian style. I found this one best for espresso machine, surprisingly light in flavor. This bag did arrive not sealed and it was mailed to Southern California and I can’t remember what I thought of this roast before. Its not like other Sumatra roasts for sure.

      I gave this as a gift, and they are loving it! Thank you for all the choices of dark roasts! We use a bodum press for our coffee, and it’s perfect.

      i use my Aeropress to try any coffee I get. What a difference . I use 22 grams of Sumatra Dark to make an espresso then add water to make an amazing Americano. The espresso itself is fantastic, just add water a little at a time until you get the perfect Americano for you.

  11. The new standard.

    Alan Fox (verified owner)

    As a Barista for twenty five years, the opportunity to taste different coffees became a passion. Sumatran become my favorite and still is to this day. Henry’s Sumatran Dark is the best I’ve had and I have tasted just about everything out there. Excellent coffee. It is what I’ll be drinking in the morning and hopefully many more after that.

    Love all the dark coffees. They are equally delicious. Can’t pick just one…so please purchase multiples. You’ll be glad you did.

  14. Really rich, but not overpowering

    Jimmy Weg (verified owner)

    About the best Sumatran I’ve had at this roast level. I’m still tweaking my brew, and I’m at 1:16 with a medium grind (#25 in C40).

  15. Spicy, a real treat

    Donald

    I like dark coffees and I’m always trying new offerings. The spicy, almost floral notes come through on this one (I do pour overs). I dialed back the number of grams I use as it was just a bit bitter, and it was perfect. I’ll probably mix a little Bella Finca in next to see what happens.

  17. When You Find the Best

    jregan11 (verified owner)

    I will review the other roasts I received as well, but after finishing our first pound of Sumatra Dark, I can confidently say that it is the best coffee I’ve ever had. To be fair, Henry’s might have other roasts which are as good, and which I havent tried yet (my wife and I have only had this, the French Roast, and Conquistador) but I can’t imagine anything better than this. For those who like a complex dark roast, look nowhere else.

      This batch seemed bitter. I’ve bought Sumatra before for the unique flavor I really liked. I bought the sample pack & this time wanted a pound of it. I’m not tasting Those yummy flavors this time around.

  20. The BEST coffee

    vurdell (verified owner)

    Rich and dark, yet smooth and not bitter at all. The flavor is wonderful! My husband never likes my dark coffee, but he tried this one day because he was out of his, and now he is hooked. He makes ice coffee with it. Our favorite coffee, hands down.

      I don’t like dark coffee but got this in a sampler. It was quite good with none of that napalm aftertaste associated with dark coffee. I will be ordering more of this!

      This is decent coffee. It’s no better and no worse than Starbucks, but it is roasted in America, not China. I’m good with that.

    This coffee is amazing. As another reviewer put it, complex but not bitter or acidic. The finish is excellent. From first cup to last very satisfying on the palate.

  30. Sumatra Dark Roast

    Bill Y (verified owner)

    I like the rich, dark, earthy taste and smell. Very smooth. I’ve had Sumatra from other companies that could be bitter. My first try with Henry’s Coffee and will be an ongoing customer.

  31. fabulous Sumatra

    rj63105 (verified owner)

    I have tried Sumatra in the past and this one is head and shoulders above the rest. But then it is from Henry’s House of Coffee so I would expect nothing less. Really excellent and the bonus of no acid.
