This is my 1st time trying this beans. And it surprised me a lot with unpredictable quality of the beans and the notes quite awesome.. Gonna be my favourite beans now..
Brewing this by using V60. To me, this bean is more towards medium dark roast, hence it's easy to extract bitterness and roasted nut tasting notes in my cup. However, if brewed correctly, I find that it is possible to have a fair amount of sweetness inside the cup. I get the sweetness more consistently by using higher water temperature to brew the coffee.

I brew this coffee using moka pot & dilute with water.
It has bold smoky body, it is sweet & has a lingering cocoa aftertaste as per description.
This could be an alternative if you wanna try a bolder coffee.
Roasted too dark for my liking. Disappointed as I was quite impressed with our local Sabarica beans which was roasted by a different Roaster, so I had high hope on this one.
Not an expert here, but I think the Malaysia Sabarica ranks among the best that I have tasted so far, comparable to the specialty grade ones from Indonesia and Brazil.

Am not a coffee expert. The flavors tend to be bland. Thumbs up for the bean freshness though. Price is on the high side such a coffee.
A fairly prominent green, almost vegetal aftertaste to the coffee, not sure if its underdeveloped or under-roasted. I personally wouldn't recommend it.
For me this taste like dark roast. Been drinking light and medium roast lately, this is slightly strong for me, still considered a good wake up coffee. Indeed with linger cocoa finish.
Happy to know that Sabah now has its own type of specialty grade coffee. It has that chocolatey taste (I think) but a little bit too sour. Love the freshness of the taste too.

Quite impress with msia’s coffee but there it seem to be more medium dark roast so for those looking for common medium roast it will be a whole new experience.
