Papua New Guinea by California Coffee Roasters Review |
  • California Coffee Roasters

    Del Valle, Texas
  • Papua New Guinea

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: April 2009
Origin: Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Sweet-toned, foresty aroma; co-cupper Jennifer Stone (90) found flowering grass and herb; Ken (91) freshly cut wood and night flowers. In the cup gently bright acidity, full body with lightly syrupy mouthfeel, and continued garden-toned aromatics: flowers (both Ken and Jennifer), nut (Ken), citrus (Jennifer). Sweetness envelopes a slight astringency in the "resonant" (Jennifer) finish.

Notes: This sample was made up of extremely large beans. We were not able to determine the story behind these beans, however. California Coffee Roasters is an award-winning specialty wholesale roaster and Internet retailer moved to Texas from California. Visit or call 800-521-5527 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who love the scents of tropical mornings. The huge beans and a very light roast may in themselves interest aficionados.


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.
