  • Papua New Guinea Kimel A

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

Blind Assessment: Co-cupper Jennifer Stone (88) remarked on this coffee?s winy acidity and pungent flavor and aromatics; Ken (89) glossed pungent with references to spicy aromatic wood and backgrounded dark chocolate. The finish stays on the rich side of astringent.

Notes: "A" is the second-highest grade of Papua New Guinea coffee based on bean size and number of visual defects; the highest grade, seldom offered, is "AA." Judging from the cup, this is a small-holder coffee. Located in the historic seaside town of Leonardo, Jersey Shore Coffee Roasters operates a cafe with a comprehensive in-house roasting program. Visit or call 732-291-0505 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A PNG for single-malt drinkers and lovers of other spirits that have one foot on the wild side.


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.
