Sumatra Royal Badger *2023 Crop!*

Full bodied, earthy, hint of citrus

(11 customer reviews)



This old-school Ateng varietal is low yielding but a bold and semi-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, low acid
  • Earthy, woody, with a citrusy snap.
  • Great for Moka pot, French Press, or Auto-Drip 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.

      Thanks Kathi – yes, great body and not too pointy on the acidity. One of my favorites for sure. Glad you like it!!

    Consistently right. I have been ordering this for years now and of all the coffees from from Telluride Coffee Roasters and other roasters as well, this one is tops.

    • Mick Hill

      Thanks Thomas. We appreciate the compliments!

    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.

  8. Gerard (verified owner)

    Always wonderful! We have reordered this coffees for the last 1.5 years. And we plan to keep ordering it.
    Low acid and bold … it’s a great coffee !

      Thanks Gerard – we hope to keep sourcing this coffee as long as they’ll keep growing it like they do!

    Great flavor I like the low acid, easy on the stomach early in the morning.

    I didn’t like it, at all. After one cup I tossed all the remaining beans in the trash. I was expecting a dark roast with rich, full bodied flavor. The beans I got were light tan and the brew had little flavor and an unpleasant after taste. But, overall it was not as bad as the Aged Sumatra I purchased at the same time. Telluride Coffee is not my Cup of Tea.

    I love this coffee! It has a bold taste, yet it is not acidic. It is so smooth! I started ordering this along with a few other of my favorite blends. I will always include this Sumatra in my choices.
