Full-bodied with a smooth mouthfeel and lingering herbal flavors. Stands up well to savory foods.


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 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.

My FAVORITE FAVORITE COFFEE!! i am obsessed with Sumatra. Starbucks is my fav and i love alot of their flavors but Sumatra is by far my favorite. Its string and bold and has a slight nutty spice i love. I brew it on strong on top of its already strong flavor and its perfect(my husband doesnt like it brewed strong though so its a taste preference i guess.) But it is definitely my go to coffee-usually two or three cups a day! So good!!

This coffee is really strong and rich. So if that’s what you’re into then you’ll love this. I personally like softer choices and even then I soften it more up with flavored creamer. But u can taste lots of depth and richness in this one. It’s just got too much of a strong taste for me.

This is my absolute favorite coffee. In fact, I only buy other Starbucks coffees when I can’t find the Sumatra anywhere. It’s bold, flavorful, and most importantly, strong! I’d recommend this to anyone who likes good strong coffee!

I like this coffee quit a bit when I'm in need of a good pick me up. I would have to say that it is on of Starbucks more bitter coffees. I like to add a splash of coconut milk and that helps with the bitterness.

I like another Brand of coffee but it doesn't come in the k-cup so I got this but it's too strong tasting. I'm going to buy the reusable filter so I can use my own brand. Wish I had known about that before ordering.

I really like the taste of this coffee. It is more of a bolder taste which I prefer. Also like the convenience and ease of using these pods. Great for on the go and when you only need one cup. One of my favorites have been using for years. It is reasonably priced and can be found just about everywhere. I would recommend.

One of my favorites. My husbands favorite too. Deep dark flavor. I add cream and sugar and it’s heavenly. Starbucks is consistently delicious. Smells amazing. Other dark roasts haven’t really compared. Love. Highly recommended.

My mom first introduced me to this product and now every time I purchase Starbucks this is the product I buy. I love the taste but I also love how strong the taste is. Sometimes when I brew Starbucks at home, it doesn't taste the same as in store, but this one does! I would totally recommend this product!

I am a huge Starbucks coffee lover both in store and at home using my Keurig.    I love strong bold coffee and cannot find an alternative.    The flavor is excellent.   I feel it is affordable when K cups are on sale at my grocery store.    I highly recommend
