|Roaster Location:||Chicago, Illinois|
|Coffee Origin:||Papua New Guinea|
|Review Date:||July 2005|
The aroma, sweetly pungent with a hint of chocolaty fruit, provided only a hint of the intensity displayed by the cup - high-toned and richly acidy, with a simple but powerful flavor complex: dry berry (aka black current), a hint of grapefruit, and rich, dry chocolate.
Papua New Guinea, which occupies the eastern half of the huge island of New Guinea stretching above northern Australia, produces some of the world's finest and most distinctive coffees. Intelligentsia is a leading Chicago-area roaster with a Keith Haring-style logo, excellent coffee, and a commitment to quality epitomized by the practice of printing roast dates on coffee packaging.
