  • Papua New Guinea - Nadam Estate

Roast: Medium Review Date: December 2003
Origin: Papua New Guinea Price: $12.95/12oz

Blind Assessment: The aroma is high-toned but pungent, laced with caramel, cantaloupe and leather. In the cup a sweet, wine-toned fruit leads, with richly malty, bracingly bitter tones opening up behind. The bitterness dissolves in the long, clean, chocolate-toned finish.

Notes: Papua New Guinea, which occupies the eastern half of the enormous island of New Guinea, produces some of the world's finest and most distinctive coffees. The Roasterie is a leading, quality-oriented specialty roaster that emphasizes its commitment to "air roasting," a technology utilizing a column of hot air rather than the conventional turning drum to agitate the roasting beans.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy paradox, in this case, austere seduction.


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.
