I have some of that Ethiopian, and yes, it's a nice one. I picked up more of what I'll call "pastry" flavors, almonds, sweetness, floral, light malt. Also some jammy fruit, not a "juicy" bean, in my opinion. Sort of like an apricot coffee cake. I only have one roast of it under my belt, around full city, so I can't give you a more rounded view. I also have the Burundi Auction Lot - Kayanza Bwayi. To my taste, it's very juicy, sweet & fruity, but more dark fruits, like cherry or red currant. I have 3 roasts of this, all C+ (I like 'em light).
I don't have any experience with that Sumatra. After drinking Sumatrans all my life, I've discovered I prefer brighter, fruitier coffees when I do my own roasting. To each his own. I'm sure I'll loop back to them after a while.
