Papua New Guinea by Zocalo Coffee House Review |
  • Zocalo Coffee House

    San Leandro, California
  • Papua New Guinea

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

Blind Assessment: Simple but deep aroma, with resonant raisiny chocolate tones. In the cup lean-bodied, delicate, fundamentally sweet and rather lush but dryly smoky with a hint of fruit that reads as white wine or grapefruit. Concludes simply but richly.

Notes: Zocalo Coffee House is a coffee house and roastery located in the San Francisco Bay Area city of San Leandro. Zocalo, of course, roughly translates as town square, a reference that reflects Zocalo's focus on community as well as coffee. Visit or call 510-569-0102 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who prefer the feel of linen to silk or wool.


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.
