Sumatran coffee is almost always processed using the Wet Hulled (semi-washed) method which gives it those classic earthiness and forest flavors. The difference with a fully washed Sumatra is that it has a much cleaner finish and less spicy notes which lets you notice more of the underlying flavors in it. You can also roast them a little bit lighter if you want to.

I personally like it best at just 5 to 10 seconds of 2nd cracks. About the same roast as what we would do with a washed Guatemala (although the Sumatra needs less heat when you roast it. It has a tendency to try to race through the roast so you have to watch it and keep it slowed down so you don't rush through the flavor development stage). At this medium roast level, you get all the great flavor and body of dark syrupy Sumatra, but none of the earthiness or smoke or burnt tastes. Cherry, hint of mineral, chocolate. It's quite pleasant!  

Really dark roasts?  A little burnt. Either way, it's a fun coffee to try since it's so rare to see a fully washed bean out of Sumatra.

This particular one is from the Aceh region.
