California Coffee Roasters
Papua New Guinea
|Roaster Location:||Del Valle, Texas|
|Coffee Origin:||Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea|
|Review Date:||April 2009|
Blind Assessment: Sweet-toned, foresty aroma; co-cupper Jennifer Stone (90) found flowering grass and herb; Ken (91) freshly cut wood and night flowers. In the cup gently bright acidity, full body with lightly syrupy mouthfeel, and continued garden-toned aromatics: flowers (both Ken and Jennifer), nut (Ken), citrus (Jennifer). Sweetness envelopes a slight astringency in the "resonant" (Jennifer) finish.
Notes: This sample was made up of extremely large beans. We were not able to determine the story behind these beans, however. California Coffee Roasters is an award-winning specialty wholesale roaster and Internet retailer moved to Texas from California. Visit www.freshcoffee.net or call 800-521-5527 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: Those who love the scents of tropical mornings. The huge beans and a very light roast may in themselves interest aficionados.
