Blind Assessment: Delicate, complex, sweetly pungent. Lemongrass, jasmine, caramel, frankincense, apricot in aroma and cup. Crisp, lightly juicy acidity; silky, slightly grainy mouthfeel. The richly drying finish consolidates around apricot and lemongrass.
Notes: Produced by the Kahento family from trees of the Typica and Arusha varieties of Arabica. The high mountain valleys of central Papua New Guinea offer some of the world’s most favorable terroirs for production of fine coffee, although the rugged terrain presents daunting transportation and infrastructure challenges.

The Bottom Line: A crisply sweet coffee driven by stone fruit and bright herb notes.
