  • Papua New Guinea Light Roast

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

Blind Assessment: Crisp, straightforward coffee; co-cupper Jennifer Stone (89) was impressed by its full mouthfeel and rather deep dimension, Ken (88) by its general balance and poise. The pleasant but muted aromatics were difficult to sort out with any precision; Jennifer tended toward caramel and chocolate; Ken was more into nut. Lest that sounds too much like sundae toppings, these were crisp, bitter-sweet, coffee-contexted nuances.

Notes: By general industry standards, a medium roast rather than a light roast. Located on Camano Island, north of Seattle, Camano Island Coffee Roasters is focused on fresh roasted coffee that is organic, shade grown and fairly traded. They offer "The Coffee Lover?s Club" for those who like to receive regular shipments of coffee. Visit or call 866-833-0209 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A mildly Pacificized rendition of a classic Central America style cup.


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.
