Adam's Organic Coffees
New Guinea Nectar
|Roaster Location:||San Francisco, California|
|Review Date:||November 1997|
Blind Assessment: My rating for this coffee rose steadily as it cooled. At first the profile seemed pleasant yet inert, without lift or innuendo. But as I came back to it the coffee seemed to elevate, lighten and sweeten, and in the end the combination of substantial body and unassuming sweetness won me over.
Notes: A good breakfast coffee, gets better as it cools, when it elevates, lightens and sweetens. It combines substantial body and unassuming sweetness. Produced by small growers. Certified organically grown.
Who Should Drink It: A good breakfast coffee for people who want to be happy without drama, seduced without arias. Until recently Papua New Guinea, one of the world's great if unrecognized origins, was dominated in the export market by two large, very well-managed plantation complexes. By using the organic niche market, importers have been able to bring some of the coffees produced by smaller growers to the American aficionado.
