Papua New Guinea
|Roaster Location:||Blissfield, Michigan|
|Coffee Origin:||Papua New Guinea|
|Review Date:||December 2003|
Blind Assessment: The aroma is subdued and gently roasty. Clear, dry, deep-toned chocolate-fruit notes carry from aroma through cup to a slightly bitter but rich 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. Organically and shade grown. Rosalie's Roast is a small boutique roasting operation founded by a stay-at-home mother. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Substantial body and a hint of dark-roast bite give the chocolate and fruit a pleasant after dinner authority.
