Dark Timbre – Sumatra

(4 customer reviews)

Consistently our top seller! Dark Timbre is a great Sumatra single origin from the Takengon region of Mandheling. The coffee is produced at the Sara Ate Coop, a collective of over 500 small farm owners since  the late 1990’s. We have purchased this bean since our opening, tasking a quick break with the previous Dark Timbre using the Harmimau Tiger Sumatra. Welcome back to our Takengon variety!

The dark roast is full-bodied, with smooth notes of dark chocolate, brown sugar and nutmeg.

Dark Timbre single origin Sumatra from Takengon region is our top seller! A wonderful dark roast Sumatra, that we retain all the  natural spices and dark chocolate notes you expect from a quality Sumatra coffee. This is achieved by keeping the roast development on the shorter side than is typical in many dark roasts.  This is  wet-hulled coffee, combining hybrid processing methods of natural and wet processing, producing a very distinct flavor from Indonesia.

The Sara Ate Coop has been producing coffee in the Takengon region from a collective of small farm owners since the late 1990's.
They have over 500 members that comprise the cooperative. We have had consistent quality in all of the inventory we have purchased from here and has been our most popular coffee since we opened!

Tasting notes are:

  • Dark Chocolate
  • Brown Sugar
  • Brown Spice
  • Nutmeg
  • Full-Bodied

    The aroma when opening my first bag of Burwell’s Beans was an experience in and of itself. What a difference in flavor and quality from the typical store bought beans! There’s no going back now that I’ve experienced beans roasted by a craftsman. The shipping was immediate with the roast date right on the resealable bag! 5 stars!

      Thank you Kristian! I’m so grateful that you tried us and welcome to the Burwell Beans family! I love hearing stories of how people discover a new coffee and humbled that you experienced the uniqueness of our roast!

    This is a great dark roast. Flavorful and low acidity.

    My experience with Burwell Beans has been fantastic! The coffee is excellent. There are so many choices of…not flavors, but “taste notes”, from fruity to nutty to chocolate and more. But what impressed me most was the friendly service. In spite of my foolish errors when ordering online, Burwell Beans responded to my help pleas immediately, and owner and founder Rick Appleton worked with me to correct the mistakes I made in the order. Of course I will be a repeat customer!
    Definitely a 5 star rating!

    Excellent dark roast. Rich flavor without being too bold or heavy.
