The Supreme Bean
Organic Papua New Guinea
|Roaster Location:||North Hollywood, California|
|Coffee Origin:||Highlands of Papua New Guinea|
|Review Date:||March 2006|
Blind Assessment: Deep, sweet-toned, buttery aroma with a spicy, cedary chocolate and a hint of fruit, pear perhaps. In the cup delicately robust, with a roundly lush but continuing spicy, cedary, almost black-peppery chocolate and a suggestion of coconut, the sweet processed kind. Roundly rich finish.
Notes: Certified organically grown. The Supreme Bean is a Los Angeles-area wholesale roaster specializing in high-end roasted-to-order espresso blends and single origins. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those who prefer a little eccentricity (but not a lot) in their beverages.
