Taste Notes

Spicy, dark fruits, black currant, brown sugar sweetness and molasses.


Sumatra coffee is punchy, powerful and irresistible.

If you have never tried Sumatran coffee, here's a hot tip - try it. 

You won't be disappointed.

There is nothing else like a Sumatran (or perhaps Sulawesi).

The unique wet-hulled processing method amplifies the flavours and complexity by 10x.

Intense, powerful and always rewarding.

After more than forty years in the coffee business, I still wonder why these unique coffees from Sumatra remain utterly memorable.

The answer is that Sumatran coffees are wild, crazy, mad flavour powerhouses.

It's really that simple.

Experiences etched into memory banks as delicious and hitting the spot like few other coffees.

It could be the prodigious syrupy body or the sweet, spicy complexity.

Whatever it is, these Sumatran coffees are big, bold and bloody beautiful.

At first sip, you may not be convinced and wonder what all the fuss is about. 

But keep drinking, and you will see why these coffees are strangely unique and distinctive.

They were punching well above other origins.

Carlini Coffee explains how we roast your coffee for maximum taste and consistency.
What to expect from our style

How we roast your coffee

Twenty years of roasting every weekday, 51 weeks a year. Many batches and a level of experience unmatched in the Australian coffee market. The same person who roasts that very first batch is the same person who roasts every batch today. Another feature rarely matched for brands our size.

Roasting coffee has never been about freaky talent or secrets passed down through generations. Nope, to roast and understand the roasting process, it is all about practice, practice and more practice. There are no shortcuts, innovative tools, or systems to help jump ahead of the competition.

It's how we can produce Australia's best-tasting and most consistent coffee. Match that with superior quality ingredients, the most advanced infrastructure, and mature processes; you have the solution for great-tasting coffee. We roast to target sweetness, acidity, flavour, body and finish to generate the best possible balance across all those competing elements.

Our espresso style is a medium roast suitable for premium cafes that care about quality. Filter-style roasts are lighter to meet the demands of modern alternative brewing methods to retain fruit-forward complexity.

Carlini Coffee describes how our solution relies upon speed, freshness, quality and value equally.
Speed, freshness, quality or value

What is most important?

The answer is that they all are. It didn't take a pandemic to learn why speed, freshness, quality and value are all equally important.
Heck no. We worked that out in 2007 as the original pioneer of online premium quality fresh roasted coffees to Australian coffee lovers.

We get it. Running out of coffee is a nightmare scenario nobody wishes to experience. With 16 years and almost 1 million successful parcel deliveries under our belts, we know a thing or two about what it takes to run a high-performance and high-speed coffee supply operation.

To ensure our coffees are crazy fresh, barely hours old when they ship out the door, it requires significant scale and resources working rapidly to roast, pack, label, grind, parcel and ship. It's an eco-system we have continued to build and optimize for 16 years, measuring our performance in minutes, not hours and days, like some of our competitors.

Nobody can guarantee or predict delivery timeframes, but we assure you of our commitment to ship freshly roasted coffees prepared to precise quality standards at a competitive price and always processed with a critical sense of urgency.

Original flavor

Sumatran reminds us of the original taste of coffee before it got ruined by the tossers doing new wave light roasted sour bombs. Good on you for sticking to the script.

Linda G.

The coffee was delivered quickly and smelt great. When brewed it had a nice spicy taste that was also sweet like liquor.

Alex O.
Nice taste

We enjoyed the taste of this coffee a lot. With black currant and molasses flavors it sure hit the spot.

Sarah E.

A bold coffee with spicy and rustic notes that culminate in a punchy flavor.
