Papua New Guinea by Intelligentsia Coffee Review |

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

Blind Assessment: Softly sweet-toned, rather simple aroma - raisin and chocolate notes. In the cup a lean but rather silky mouthfeel, with continued raisin and sweet pipe tobacco notes and a continued lean toward milk chocolate. Simple, straightforward finish with a shimmer of astringency in the long.

Notes: Intelligentsia is a leading Chicago-area roaster with growing national reputation, a Keith Haring-style logo, outstanding coffee, and a commitment to quality epitomized by the practice of printing roast dates on coffee packaging. Visit or call 888-945-9786 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Try it black with scones.
