New Guinea by Little City Coffee Roaster Review |
  • Little City Coffee Roaster

    Austin, Texas
  • New Guinea

Roast: Medium Review Date: March 2006
Origin: Highlands of Papua New Guinea Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Very sweet, caramelly aroma with milk chocolate notes and hints of earth and cedar. In the cup richly acidy, with continued caramel and milk chocolate notes. Rather limited in nuance but not a lazy cup; a simple, straightforwardly pleasing gesture.

Notes: Little City is an Austin, Texas boutique roasting company with two cafe locations and an irreverent attitude. Example (on the Little City website): "ALCOHOL WARNING: If you consume 3 or more alcoholic drinks every day, you may need to double the recommended dosage of caffeine. Ask your doctor or co-workers." On the other hand, the site is rather vague on coffee geography: New Guinea is confused with Java. Visit or call 512-467-2326 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who wear simple clothes by choice.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
