California Coffee Roasters
Papua New Guinea
|Roaster Location:||Moorpark, California|
|Coffee Origin:||Papua New Guinea|
|Review Date:||December 2003|
Blind Assessment: Delicate apple, leather, and milk chocolate notes in the sweet, mid-toned aroma. The cup is explicit in its clear chocolate notes, complicated by dry fruit tones that suggest raisins or dates. Substantial body and a sweet, clean finish.
Notes: Papua New Guinea, which occupies the eastern half of the enormous island of New Guinea, produces some of the world's finest and most distinctive coffees. California Coffee Roasters is a small, quality-oriented wholesale specialty roaster that advertises its commitment to "Handcrafted Fresh Roasted Coffees". Visit
Who Should Drink It: Subtle chocolate lovers.
