Sumatra Royal Badger


(8 customer reviews)



This old school Ateng varietal is low yielding but a bold and fruity coffee.

We hope that our support for this coffee proves the worth of a high quality / low-yielding coffee, dissuading local growers from replanting with higher yielding, inferior, coffees.

Cupping Notes:

  • Good body with thick acidity.
  • Caramel and butterscotch notes.
  • Great for pour over or French Press preparation.

    We love this coffee! We use a French press and the coffee is near perfect. Bold and fruity. We’re happy that we can order this unique coffee online.

    Wanted a medium dark , not heavy and low acid bean. This is perfect if that is your goal. It’s “like” French Roast but not the edge that comes with it. Keep reordering and don’t get tired of it. Thank you Telluride and Doug for originally introducing me to this coffee.

    Wonderful flavor, smooth and easy on the stomach. I drink my coffee black, and this is perfect coffee for those of us who love coffee without all the added stuff.
