Sumatra by Pegasus Coffee Review |
  • Pegasus Coffee

    Bainbridge Island, Washington
  • Sumatra

Roast: Very-Dark Review Date: March 1998
Origin: Sumatra Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Another Sumatra carried to a dark roast with enough tact to avoid carbon. But, alas, not enought to save the sweetness and nuance. What's left is a balanced dry heaviness that can be read as richness.

Notes: A dark-roasted Sumatra which avoids carbon, but has no sweetness or nuance. Best brewed in a French press and served with milk and sugar. Pegasus is a mainly wholesale roaster dedicated to a dark roast style. This is a traditionally processed Sumatra Coffee.

Who Should Drink It: Definitely a Northwest coast coffee. Brew it strong in a French press and drink it with milk and sugar.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
