Earthy with full body and no acidity. A full rounded body with tones of smoke but extremely pleasant. I only noticed that it was 11 oz and not 12 oz when I got it, but that is inconsequential. I like it black, but it would go well with cream or milk. Great value for the money.
I often drink it as a cafe au lait. Third wave coffee, which is popular in Japan, is light roasted, but there is no coffee that fits well because it is not good at sourness, and I liked the flavored coffee of this maker, so I took the plunge and bought a dark roast. It was okay to dilute it and drink it in black. I'm a little addicted to Sumatran coffee because it has a special and unique flavor.
