The Supreme Bean
Organic Papua New Guinea
|Roaster Location:||North Hollywood, California|
|Coffee Origin:||Papua New Guinea|
|Review Date:||March 2004|
Blind Assessment: A cup that will put off purist coffee professionals but please everyone else: Fermented fruit tones that require some imagination to read as cherryish chocolate in the aroma simply explode with extravagantly complex fruit and floral nuance in the cup. As the cup cools the fruit seems to shed its ambiguous ferment entirely and turn cleanly lush.
Notes: This certified organically grown coffee is a particularly fine example of the often overlooked but frequently superb small-grower coffees of Papua New Guinea. The best have a wild, fruity extravagance that takes particularly well to darker roast styles.

Who Should Drink It: Lovers of sweet but complex white wines.
